Short answer, it takes approximately 4 hours to beat the primary campaign/story mode. However, if you want to go for every stage and get that coveted 100% completion rate, it’ll take a bit longer, depending on your skills.

But if you want the long-winded answer about Splatoon 3 How Long to Beat, then we will happily oblige. Ok, so we come to this rough estimate because four bosses are in the game, alongside a fifth secret boss who is tougher to take on than the others. These, alongside other small things and self-imposed challenges, extend the game’s run time.

Key Takeaways

  • Splatoon 3 takes place five years after the events of Splatoon 2 in the Spatlands.
  • The campaign mode is very straightforward and can be completed quickly without much difficulty.
  • The story of the campaign is called “Return of the Mammalians,” and it takes place in Alterna, a snow biome littered with weird things called Furry Ooze and laboratories.
  • The campaign has seven worlds with different levels to complete, each with a unique theme and challenges.
  • It takes approximately 4 hours to beat the primary campaign/story mode, but it’ll take longer if you aim for 100% completion rate.

Splatoon 3 Campaign Levels

In terms of what we can give you advice or there isn’t much since the campaign is very straightforward and can be quickly completed without much difficulty considering the game is designed with children as its primary demographic.

However, we can talk about the story of the campaign. It’s called “Return of the Mammalians,” which makes it seem like more mammals are likely to appear soon. You will again embrace the Inklings’ role in fighting against the Octarians, the series’s primary antagonists. Although this time, they appear to be mutated with brown fur and glowing purple eyes.

The story takes place in Alterna, a snow biome littered with weird things called Furry Ooze and laboratories. The New Squidbeak Splatoon recruits your player character as their newest member, Agent 3. You may recognize the previous Agent 3 as the captain of this squad.

So now that we have talked a little bit about the story, let’s get on with the Splatoon 3 How Long to Beat guide by telling you all about the levels you can look forward to completing in your journey.
