Each of the stages in Splatoon 3

Get to know the Turf in Splatoon 3!

On August 10, Nintendo held a Splatoon 3 Direct in honor of the upcoming release. One of the most exciting tidbits about this Direct was new info on the playable stages of the game. Since the name of the game is inking the stages in Turf War, it’s essential to keep track of your surroundings.

Players can play intense three-minute battles in the game’s primary mode: Turf War. When Splatoon 3 launches, the game will have a dozen unique stages. Some locations are entirely new, while others are fan favorites from past iterations of Splatoon.
