The official Splatoon 3 game page on the Nintendo Store website has revealed that the highly-anticipated third entry will only support cloud saves for its offline content i.e the single player content. This is a step up from the previous entry as Splatoon 2 which didn’t feature cloud save support at all. Still, it’s not completely ideal as saves are tied to console rather than servers. Cloud saves are only available for those of you who have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Splatoon 3 will be released on 9th September.
About Splatoon 3:
“Enter the Splatlands, a sun-scorched desert inhabited by battle-hardened Inklings and Octolings. Splatsville, the city of chaos, is the adrenaline-fueled heart of this dusty wasteland.
Even in this desolate environment, Turf War* reigns supreme and battles rage in new stages located in the surrounding wilds. Dynamic new moves help these fighters dodge attacks and cover more ground, along with a new bow-shaped weapon to sling ink.
Join Agent 3 in a fight against the unruly Octarians in story mode. Discover the secrets of Alterna, the Fuzzy Ooze, and how they connect to the mode’s theme, “Return of the Mammalians.”
Team up and fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses in the next iteration of Salmon Run*, a co-op mode with fresh new features. ”
