Splatoon 3: How to Play Multiplayer With Friends

On first boot turn 3, you cannot switch to multiplayer immediately. You must first create a character, go through a tutorial, and reach Splatsville, the game’s focal point, before the local and online multiplayer options become available and you can play with friends or someone else.

Fortunately, this shouldn’t take very long. Once you’ve arrived, there are a variety of ways to join a multiplayer match. This turn 3 Guide will tell you how to get to Splastville and how to join a multiplayer match.

How to reach Splatsville

After creating your custom Inkling or Octoling, you’ll be thrown into the tutorial phase of turn 3 This shouldn’t take more than 10 or 15 minutes and will help you get familiar with the basics of splatoon if you are a newcomer to the series.

They are then thrown into Splatsville’s main square and taken to start a multiplayer match. You can also talk to the old squid by the sewers to get a head start on the single player content, which you could turn off before even touching multiplayer if you really wanted to.

From here, the game keeps the kid gloves on just a tad longer, but you now have a variety of ways to engage in multiplayer matches.

Once you’re in Splatsville, there are a few places you need to become familiar with. First is the building with the crossing arrow logo. This is the lobby where you can search for online multiplayer matches. You are limited to the regular Turf War and Private Battle modes until you reach level 10.

You can also access a quick multiplayer menu in the lobby by pressing L (left bumper). This brings you to the same list of online options as entering the subway. From this menu you can also view your win/loss list, message center and a list of friends who are actively playing turn 3.

To the right of the lobby building you will find another building with two arrows forming an infinity sign. this is that swarm, where you can play local multiplayer with other nearby Switch players. From here you can access private competitive battles and Salmon Run matches for some local splatting mayhem.

Note: Most of the game’s customizations will not be unlocked until you reach level 4. This softer cap is where the game starts to open up, and it’s also the timing salmon run becomes available.
