The game was supposed to launch at midnight and fans waited for hours to get their copies of the game. Notably, the third game of the Splatoon franchise is as good as the previous ones. As Nintendolife decorates the game with 9.8/10 stars, and 4/5 by Eurogamer, Metacritic gives it a stunning 84% rating.

The game, as recently launched by Nintendo, has a huge preference by fans for it since the previous Splatoon games made a strong market for themselves and fans especially loved Splatoon 2 because of its fluid mechanics.
