Nintendo has confirmed a ton of information regarding the release of the new game. The 4v4 Turf War mode was shown in a trailer taking place in the Splatlands desert, so we can expect that to be part of the latest iteration of the game.

The company has also confirmed that there will be two new movement mechanics and a new weapon in the game.

It was revealed that the first movement mechanic would be the squid roll, which Inklings can use in squid form. This gives Inklings the ability to launch out of their ink and twirl through the air.

The second movement mechanic was the squid surge, which quickly shoots players up walls and launches them at the top.

Nintendo has also revealed that there will be a new weapon coming to the game, with a bow that can shoot three strings of ink.
