With a cute Easter egg, Google has won over players of Splatoon 3, Nintendo's latest inking shooter. Although Splatoon 3 came out a month ago, the developer has decided to highlight the colorful game today, and fans have taken note. \n \nGoogle occasionally includes fun easter eggs across the site. It can be as easy to find as a slightly modified Google logo or require some digging. In this case, activating the Easter egg is simple, but most people will only notice it if they are specifically encouraged to look for it. \n \nFans have discovered that if they type "Splatoon," "Splatoon 2," or "Splatoon 3" into Google's main search page, the Easter egg will appear. \n \nWhen seeing the search page, fans need only wait a second until they see a cluster of ink splats emerge on the screen next to the game's description. \n \nThe ink on the screen can be tapped to reveal that, like trying to cover the most turf in Splatoon 3, the player can ink the entire screen in the colors of the Google logo. A second button will allow visitors to remove the ink and continue browsing normally or to start splatting all over again. \n \nWhether or whether the fact that the most popular search engine in the world has added a reference to Splatoon 3 has contributed to the game's meteoric rise in sales is still being determined. \n \nFinally, however, the next Splatfest for Splatoon 3 has been announced, and it will feature the three new Pokemon starters from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The timing of this Easter surprise may have been determined, in part, by a live performance of Splatoon scheduled for this weekend. Alternatively, it could simply be a late reference to the newest installment in the series. \n \nAnybody can enjoy the Google Easter egg while Inklings and Octolings prepare for a turf war to decide which of the two Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters is superior.
