Splatoon 3’s Sizzle Season is set to make a splash

There’s something fishy about the trailer for Splatoon’s Sizzle Season, and it’s not just the announcement of the BIG, Big Run event.

Summertime is just around the corner, and so is Splatoon 3’s Sizzle Season. As we’re slathering on the sunscreen in anticipation, Nintendo’s also getting ready as they showed off a trailer and a new Splatfest. There’s also a big, new, horrendous event with all three Salmonid bosses.

Grab your caps, slides, and favorite paint-shooting device, and get ready to hop into the new stage Lemuria Hub, set to open up during Sizzle Season 2024, starting on June 1. The stage has three moving parts that slide in tandem, offering players different angles to shoot from and some more opportunities to hide from opponents.

Along with this newfangled stage, there are new Splatoon 3 weapons including the Wellstring V that can fire five charged shots at once, a fresh song, emotes, and a wardrobe update, too. But that’s all expected. What isn’t expected is the Big, Big Run event.

The Big, Big Run starts just like any other Big Run – salmonids break out of their usual shoreline spawn zones and take over a stage. A stage that we usually run around in with no fear. However, this time, there’s a catch. There’s the Attack of the Triumvirate to deal with, where all three of Salmon Run’s gigantic bosses descend on the stage at once.

Yep, that’s Cozohuna, Horroboros, and Megalodontia all trying to splat you at once! We’re sure that Mr. Grizz has some weapons to lend us in order to fend them off, or else he’s not getting any golden eggs out of me.

We’re getting a Splatfest to kick off the summer season, too – the Summer Nights Splafest will start soon, and as soon as we know more, we’ll update our Splatoon 3 Splatfest page.

In the mean time, here are the new games for Switch that you should get your hands on.
