All Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere demo weapons

When the Splatfest demo begins, you’ll be handed a Splattershot Jr. as part of the opening tutorial. Once you get to Splatsville, you’ll be able to choose from a total of 26 different weapons. The full list of confirmed weapons in Splatoon 3 is much longer, but every category is covered in the demo, including the new Splatana and Stringer types. The former is a melee weapon that can also fire a wave of ink when charged, and the latter is Splatoon’s version of a bow, which has different effects depending on how long you hold the string back.

How to download the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere demo

The list of weapons above won’t do you any good if you don’t have the Splatfest demo downloaded in the first place. You can download the demo from the Nintendo Switch eShop now, but the actual matches don’t begin until Saturday, August 27. A traditional Splatfest will run from noon ET / 9 AM PT to 6 PM ET / 3 PM PT, then a new Tricolor Turf War Battle will run from 6 PM ET / 3 PM PT to midnight ET / 9 PM PT. That’s 12 full hours of early splatting in Splatoon 3 until its full release on September 9.
