Jammin' Salmon Junction is a Salmon Run Next Wave-exclusive online multiplayer stage. It is set on a collapsed multilane highway, which has been turned into a concert venue by the Salmonids. It was released in Splatoon 3 on 1 June 2023, at the start of the Sizzle Season 2023.

Layout

Jammin' Salmon Junction features an organ-like structure arranged into a concert stage in the background, with the main area having two multilane roads that go continuously downward into the water no matter the tide. There is a raised platform connected to the basket area by a grate on the right of the stage, and a small raised part with the basket in the middle. There is a small gap between both sides of the road on normal and low tides, which can be jumped across to reach the other side faster.

Tides

  • During low tide, the lower placed road and two more lanes are revealed, continuing further down into the water.
  • During high tide, the stage's area significantly shrinks, leaving only a small area consisting of the basket platform, the narrow grate on the right side, and a small part of the road to the left.

Trivia

  • The neon sign on the organ-like structure behind the Egg Basket has the same shape as the logo seen on ω-3's turntable.
  • Singing and musical instruments can be heard in the background between waves, unique to this stage.
  • This stage has the low tide which is furthest from the rest of the stage, taking the entire 10 second countdown before the wave starts to travel there.
  • This stage is unique in that Giant Tornado waves do not spawn the basket at the edge of the water, due to the length of the stage. Instead, the baskets spawn level with the low tide egg basket for easier delivery.
  • High tide on this map is one of the smallest high tides in both games, along with Ruins of Ark Polaris.
  • During Cohock Charge waves, all cannons are ahead of the basket, as opposed to behind, making this stage unique amongst Salmon Run stages for this type of event.
