Are you looking to pick up Splatoon 3 when it launches September 9th, 2022? If so, there’s probably a good chance you have Splatoon 2 in your Switch collection. If so, make sure you hold onto that Splatoon 2 save data, as it’ll get you some goodies when you fire up Splatoon 3.

If there’s save data from Splatoon 2 on your Switch, part of it can be transferred to Splatoon 3. Doing so will unlock the following bonuses for you:

  • Receive three Gold Sheldon Licenses that you can exchange for main weapons, regardless of player level
  • Join Anarchy Battles from the beginning of the game, regardless of player level
  • Start the game with a higher rank, depending on your rank in Splatoon 2
  • Get matched against players with similar skill levels from Splatoon 2

If you don’t have Splatoon 2 save data on your Switch as of right now, there’s still 4 weeks left to change that! Hop in right now, give the sequel a go, and prepare for extra goodies in the threequel!

Thanks to The8BitLego for the heads up!

This is actually quite awesome. Not needing to start from scratch is going to save me so much time.
