When is the next Big Run event in Splatoon 3?

The next Big Run will star a new, horrifying serpent called Horroboros. The monstrous serpent and an army of Salmonids are projected to invade the Inkblot Art Academy on March 3. Big Run is similar to Salmon Run mode, except players will face Salmonids on regular multiplayer maps rather than traditional Salmon Run maps. The story behind Big Run is that the Salmonids are invading the Greater Splatsville area, attacking heavily populated areas.
