The Splatoon 3 version 3.1.0 patch notes have been released by Nintendo Entertainment Planning & Development, so follow the article to check out the Splatoon 3 version 3.1.0 patch notes.


Splatoon 3

Splatoon 3 is a third-person shooter game developed and published by Nintendo. It is a sequel to Splatoon 2 and is scheduled to be released on the Nintendo Switch console in 2022.

The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humans no longer exist and the world is inhabited only by Inklings, creatures that can transform into octopuses and back again. In this world, the Inklings participate in a sport called Turf War, where they compete in teams to cover as much of the field as possible with their team’s ink.

In Splatoon 3, players take on the role of an Inkling and compete in a variety of game modes, including Turf War, Splat Zones, Tower Control, and Rainmaker. The game will feature new weapons and abilities such as the bow and arrow like weapon “Splat Bow” and the ability “Ink Portal” which allows players to teleport around the map.

One of the most significant innovations in Splatoon 3 is the introduction of customizable Inklings. Players can choose from a variety of hairstyles, clothes and accessories to create their unique hunch. The game also features a new single-player campaign mode where players will embark on a journey to uncover the mysteries of the world and encounter new enemies.

Another new feature is the addition of new playable characters called “Octolings”, which were previously only playable in multiplayer. Octolings are creatures similar to the Inklings, but with a different appearance, and are considered a rival to the Inklings.

Splatoon 3 will also have new stages to play on, including a desert-themed stage called “Dust Depot” and a skatepark-inspired stage called “The Bunker.” The game’s graphics have also been updated to showcase more detailed and vivid visuals.

In addition to the new gameplay features, Splatoon 3 will also have online multiplayer modes that will allow players to compete with others from around the world. The game’s multiplayer mode will feature a new ranking system that will allow players to climb the ranks and unlock new rewards as they progress.

Changes in Salmon Run

The interval between touching the Golden Egg and being able to use it was roughly the same for all players.

By adjusting the animation speed when a Golden Egg enters a non-host player’s life, the interval between touching a Golden Egg and being able to use it is now roughly the same for both host and non-host players.

However, if the communication delay exceeds a certain level, the timing may not be the same for the host player.

This update focuses on adding Splatfest data, adjusting Splatfest Points, and improving online multiplayer.

For Splatfest Points, adjustments to the halftime report should reduce the feeling that the winning team has already been decided.

For primary weapons, the changes should highlight unique weapon properties and strengthen certain combinations of secondary and special weapons.

For sub-weapons, the changes should create more ways to use certain sub-weapons, as well as limit strategies that used certain sub-weapons repeatedly.

For Special Weapons, we’ve reviewed and made adjustments to the performance of each Special Weapon now that the use of Special Weapons new to Splatoon 3 is more established.

For the new special weapon Kraken Royale, its basic abilities have not changed, but they have been modified in certain modes to limit adverse circumstances.

For Salmon Run, the changes should ensure that lag is minimal regardless of which system is the host. It is possible that the host system selection for wireless play in any or all game modes may change, either to add functionality or improve communication efficiency. Therefore, we take steps to minimize lag regardless of which system is the host.

We plan to release the next update at the end of the current season. It will mainly focus on balancing adjustments and adding features for the new season starting in June.

Fixed an issue where it was not defined which player’s screen would be used as the default if the Ultra Stamp user attacked an opponent and the communication delay caused the shot to land differently between the two player’s screens.
