The next Splatfest for Splatoon 2 has been announced. In the second competition, players will be asked to choose between flight and invisibility.

This Splatfest will be taking place in both North America and Europe. We’re waiting on details for Japan at present.

    I hope the players actually get those powers in the real Splatfest.

    • Carlos

      They do have some specials, and an ability like that.

  • Blanco8x8

    You can kill a bird, but you can’t kill a ghost.

    • Tlink7

      You invisible skrubs would be accidentally killed all the time!

      *splat*
      ”Oh, whoops, killed another one of those invisimen ¯_(ツ)_/¯”

    • Annie Anemo

      Maybe not a ghost (since it is already dead and all) but you can definitely kill an invisible person

  • Tlink7

    Why would anyone choose being invisible over quacking flying?! MADNESS

    • awesomeparadise3

      Flying would get you dissected.

    • ≈ KobobKC ≈ ᔦꙬᔨ

      Can’t stalk people by flying.

      • Tlink7

        You can, you just gotta be a bit more creative :3

    • Bart

      You really have to ask? xD

      For lewd purposes of course, I’ll just leave it at that…

      • Symbol de Au

        Note: I internally debated whether or not I wanted to be “that guy” for all of three minutes before ultimately deciding to make this post.

        You know if you’re invisible it means that no light is being absorbed by your eyes, which means that you’d be blind too.

        • Bart

          I’ll thank you kindly not to mention science around this house. :p

          Well if you put it that way guess I’m going with flight then, I couldn’t decide… Er thanks!

          • Symbol de Au

            *fanfare*

            BART has joined the party!

      • Tlink7

        So how would that work? Invisible does not mean you can just pass through, say, bathroom walls :3

        • Bart

          Yeah, I think I’ll refrain from going into anymore detail on this particular subject, on this particular site… Just use your imagination buddy. Or, you know, Google something. :p

          • Tlink7

            Pfft, my imagination is not your imagination C: or are you actually an AI that I can find on Google?!

          • Bart

            No, evidently not, which is why we’re having this whole conversation in the first place it seems. xD

            And if I was an AI, would I even know it? 😮

            The plot thickens…

          • Tlink7

            DUN DUN DUNNNNNN
            I don’t think you’d know you’d be human AI unless something went horribly wrong… would you want to know if you were?

          • Bart

            We’re getting a bit offtopic here… xD

            You know, I don’t think I’d care much, what’s the difference , I’d just continue playing videogames anyway, mechanical brain or biological…

          • Tlink7

            I get off-topic a lot 😀

            Ignorance is bliss~

  • Eagle367

    I’ll be in Canada by then.

    • Marc Guindon

      Splatfest work in canada too mate 😉

      • Eagle367

        I’ll be in orientation week. Who knows if I’ll get to play splatoon. I always can’t seem to be free during splatfests

  • Lumine

    Flying’s so much better than being invisible. Go team flight!

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Dammit. Now I gotta vote against Marina. I suppose it was only a matter of time…

    • Pinkie-Dawn

      And I also expect Pearl to win yet again because flying is the more popular superpower than invisibility.

  • Petri

    There’s practically millions of things you could do while invisible.
    Flying around probably gets you shot down.

    • Pinkie-Dawn

      Unless you’re Superman.

    • Tlink7

      What would you do while invisible? And if you don’t fly over hostile countries or military bases, I’m sure you’d be fine 😀

      • Petri

        You think your government would let you just fly about?
        There’s variety of things you can do while invisible, from peeping to spying state secrets.
        Unless you plan on applying to a position of an Amazon drone, I don’t know how much of a financial benefit could flying bring.

        • Tlink7

          You think your government would just let you go invisible? People fly all over the place in planes, so I don’t see why I wouldn’t be able to do the same just minus the vehicle 😛
          Just because you’re invisible doesn’t mean you can just sneak into any place. Unless somebody leaves the door open, you might as well be visible. Barbed wires would stop you, doors would stop you, IR cameras would stop you, laser grids would stop you, etc etc etc

          Plus, I wouldn’t do it for financial gain, I’d just fly everywhere because flying is awesome 😀

          • Petri

            There was no specification of these abilities.
            But if we really want to get deep with this, you better reserve a lot of coats on your flights or you will get cold real fast.

          • Tlink7

            I know I know 😀
            I’ll let you out-invis IR cameras if I can outfly the government 😛

          • Petri

            Deal.

  • Exy

    There’s a lot of people they’re going to pick what they think will be the less popular team, because a single Splatfest has convinced them that the results favor them. And in doing so, they’ll just make it the more popular team and lose again. Self-fulfilling prophesies are the best.

  • Pinkie-Dawn

    Expect empty posts from Team Invisible.

  • R.Z.

    I’m a creep, so invsibility all the way !
    Of course both would be better …

    • Tlink7

      How would you go about with the creeping though? 😀 would there be an RZ-shaped water silhouette in some woman’s shower? :3

      • R.Z.

        I like to think of myself as of a “virtuous” invisble man who would use his powers for stopping crimes, maybe some petty theft and occasionally oggling underdressed ladies for inappropriate amounts of time but only ever in public spaces.
        But who knows if that wouldn’t escalate once I start getting away with stuff …
        😛

        • Tlink7

          Haha, that’s probably what I would so as well. But power corrupts, so who knows what monster I might become xD
          And hey, if people are out in public, they shouldn’t mind when people look at them :3

  • inkling cute 17

    YAY

  • Ragnell

    Flight!! Get up on my level!

  • Carlos

    This is tough. They both have their uses.

  • Symbol de Au

    I’ll have to go for flight…but I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to play anyway…but either way we’ll win.

  • Annie Anemo

    Flight is so much cooler

  • Adrian Brown

    In theory, flying is better. But in practice, you need to take account factors such as vertigo and climate conditions. Invisibility is the right choice here.
