Prepare for Splatoween

Prepare for Splatoween

There seems to be a higher percentage of "ghouls," "jack o’lanterns," and "pumpkin-flavored treats" being spread around. There's no mistaking: it's time to get excited for Splatoween!

Trick or Treat

Both Inklings and Octolings are going batty about this special Splatfest happening later this month. The spooky celebration runs from Friday, October 19 at 3pm PT, to Sunday, October 21 at 3pm PT — 48 hours total!


Speaking of treats, you can get special in-game treats! Via an upcoming Nintendo Switch News article, you'll be able to receive four different pieces of spooky headgear. You will need to follow the Squid Research Lab Report (Splatoon 2) News Channel on your Nintendo Switch and launch the Splatoon 2 game from the corresponding news article. If you haven't followed the channel yet, now is a great time to consider it!

You will receive:

  • Kyonshi Hat
  • Li'l Devil Horns
  • Hockey Mask
  • Anglerfish Mask

Our researchers have two notes about this:

1) Please make sure that you either have the game card inserted or the digital version of the game on your system.

2) Be sure to receive the items before the article ink-dives off your news feed. We recommend grabbing the items as soon as possible!

Inkopolis Square

Reports indicate that Inkopolis Square will also be getting quite the Splatoween makeover to spice up the festive atmosphere. You might even spot other residents of Inkopolis getting into the spirit!

Battle Stages

Even battle stages will receive Halloween-themed graffiti. Outside of battle, you might want to use the Recon feature to freely explore!

We hope you enjoy Splatoween and the spooktacular in-game gear!
