The primary way to check the Splatoon 3 server status is to visit the official Nintendo of America Support website. Specifically, the Network Status page will offer an indicator on whether servers are operating normally or whether they're down for any reason. This page will also outline any planned future maintenance.

If servers are down or under maintenance, you won't be able to login to Splatoon 3. If there are any maintenance updates, Nintendo will outline them on the NOA Support page or the Nintendo of America Twitter page. Follow this account, as well as Splatoon North America, for frequent updates from the developers themselves. You can even sign up for notifications so that you’re pinged as soon as a tweet goes live.

That’s how you can check the maintenance and server status for Splatoon 3. Keep in mind that if servers are up and you still can't connect online, you might need to double check that you have the latest system update installed.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
