For most game franchises and series, the release of a new sequel title usually means players will have to build up their new character and gain achievements in the sequel game from scratch. Veteran players have to rely on their gameplay experience to do this and progress with the new character as fast as possible, so as to get an advantageous edge. This obviously means the saved data, progress, character strength/abilities, and achievements of the player are not transferred to the new sequel. However, the case is different in Splatoon 3, as you can transfer and actually use some part of the saved data from Splatoon 2 in the new game. This can be done, but many players do not know how to go about it, which is why in this article, we will walk you through the steps on how to transfer save data from Splatoon 2 to Splatoon 3.
