A new Splatfest is headed to Splatoon 3 and it’s going to be a scorcher!

Ahoy, researchers! We got a bit of ink-formation from the lab that something’s about to go down in Splatsville.

Join the next Splatfest* on 9/23 (Fri.) – 9/25 (Sun.) to answer one of the toughest questions ever posed:

What would you bring to a deserted island? Tools, food, or something to pass the time?

What a tough research question—surely you must have flinched hearing it. Wait, you’re saying we flinched, too? It might be that desert heat getting to everyone. Anyways! Choose which team you’d like to throw ink for and dive onto the battlefield!

What is a Splatfest?

A Splatfest is a big deal for Inklings and Octolings around the world. Players join one of three causes and try to win in-game battles to champion their thoughts on the questions posed.

Splatoon and Splatoon 2 players are probably used to joining one of two sides, but yeah…the Splatoon™ 3 game has THREE sides. Talk about your triple threat!

After choosing their destiny, participants take it to Splatfest Battles. The goal of a match is to ink as much of the stage as you can. The more matches your side wins, the closer you’ll be to a resounding victory. Splatfests in Splatoon 3 also include Tricolor Turf War battles, which are 4v2v2!

Good luck making a splash on the battlefield, researchers.
