For the first time, take Turf War battles on-the-go with the Nintendo
Switch™ system, and use any of the console's portable play styles for
intense local multiplayer* action. Even team up for new 4-player co-op
fun in Salmon Run!
Two years have passed since the original Splatoon™ game was released,
