Gallery: Splatoon 3 Salmon Run: Next Wave – Everything Revealed So Far

Salmon Run mode was yesterday confirmed for Splatoon 3, so what can we expect? Following on from the brief trailer in the Nintendo Direct, we’ve now got some screenshots showing off the new in-game job site, Sockeye Station.

Nintendo’s official Splatoon 3 Twitter account has also gone into detail about everything on display – from new enemies to returning ones, and even new abilities. It seems we’ve also got a look at the area where you’ll go to take on a job. Enjoy!

New Map – Sockeye Station

This is an advanced base for Salmonids, featuring a tall, spiraling tower, and it presents new tactical opportunities for both allies and antagonists.

New boss Salmonid – Fish Stick

As the name implies, flying Salmonids have been observed planting a large “stick” to gain a tactical advantage.

New boss Salmonid – Flipper-Fopper

“Flipper-Flopper,” has been observed creating a ring of ink before diving magnificently into said ring. While beautiful, this is a dangerous attack! Inklings will need to cooperate to prevent Flipper-Floppers from flipping and/or flopping.

New boss – King Salmonid

Squid Research Lab is excited and more than a little scared to reveal the existence of a King Salmonid. This unfathomably terrifying creature can be scientifically described as “ginormous.”

New move – Egg Throw

Another new feature of note: a tactical throwing of Golden Eggs, scientifically known as the “Egg Throw.” Inklings can now pass Golden Eggs to allies or deposit them from afar. This consumes a portion of ink but greatly increases efficiency!

Helicopter drop

First, new hires are being ferried to job sites in a helicopter! We were unable to probe any of Grizzco’s financial documents, but it doesn’t take a scientist to determine that helicopters cost money.

Splatoon 2 Salmon Run bosses return

While we’ve spent a great deal of time observing these terrifying new specimens, we must note that all Boss Salmonids from Splatoon 2 can also be observed invading the Splatlands. Inklings with prior experience from Splatoon 2 may be able to draw on this knowledge to defeat them.

A New Look


According to the Splatoon 3 Twitter – this is just an initial look, and there’s more data to gather and show off right up until the game’s release in Summer 2022. So be on the lookout for more in the near future.
