Total area 2,746p
Features Sponges

Eeltail Alley is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 3.


Eeltail Alley is set in an alley in the middle of Splatsville with various buildings around and a monorail above. Various bridges placed around the stage give it a separate upper and lower layer. There are many sponges spread across the map.

Ranked Battle terrain

In Ranked Battles, specifications for the terrain or placement of objects are different between the modes; these changes create new paths or new objects to take cover behind.

Splat Zones

The Splat Zone is located in the middle, being almost as wide as the entire stage. The uninkable walls have been shortened slightly to allow easier access across the middle of the stage. The bridge's middle section is removed, making access to the other team's side harder. The Bumper in the middle of the stage is replaced with a short, diagonal uninkable wall.

Tower Control

The middle of the bridge is removed and a raised block replaces it. The Tower starts on the raised block then moves forward, to the right slightly, then forward again. It then goes left, then forward towards the uninkable path before reaching the goal. The middle of each team's bridge, which connects the left side to the middle section, is removed.

In Splatoon 3, checkpoints have been added:
Checkpoint Location Timer (Seconds) Progress Amount
Before After Total
1 The first checkpoint is on the same raised block, right next to the starting position. 4 96 88 8
2 The second checkpoint is a bit more forward in between the right and left bridge sections. 6 63 51 12
3 The third checkpoint is located before the tower starts moving in the uninkable path. 6 29 17 12


The middle of the bridge is lowered and diagonal to the bridge. The Rainmaker starts on the lowered section of the bridge. The checkpoints are located forward of the bridge and in the middle of the open area in the middle of each team's side. The goal is located on the first drop of each team's spawn. The sponge to the left of the stage is replaced with a ramp and an uninkable ramp is added on the other side of the left area, allowing access from the other side.

Clam Blitz

The Clam Baskets are located in the middle of each team's side, similar to the first checkpoint in Rainmaker. The bridge is similar to its Rainmaker layout.

Splatoon 3

Eeltail Alley was released with the launch of Splatoon 3.
