      Splatoon 2.

        How do you know

          The official source only uses art from the second game and Nintendo Switch is mentioned several times. Why would they play the first game?

          • JasonBall

            Because I haven’t seen a 2 anywhere, and a prize is a copy of 2, which I thought was weird if all the participants already obviously own 2. If they were playing 1 the prize being 2 would make more sense.

            The prize is exclusive packaged Splatoon 2 game (pictured is what last year got): http://i.imgur.com/xDb5ORO.png
            so it would still make sense.
            Also notice the rules :
            ” All weapons by release of each tournament”.
            Splatoon 1 is not going to get any more weapons so that much mean they are playing Splatoon 2

            Ah, you speak the truth. Thanks.
