Splatoon 3 Splatfest guide

Splatoon 3’s next Splatfest is on the horizon, and we’ve put together a general guide aimed at beginners and casual players.

Splatoon 3 hosts two kinds of events: Splatfests and Big Runs. Generally speaking, we only get one of these events per month. This time around, the Splatfest’s theme is which weekend day is best: Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Despite the theme seeming a little bit trivial, these Splatfests are no joke: they’re arguably the most competitive events the game has to offer. If you consider yourself a more casual Splatoon player, don’t let that competitiveness intimidate you! There are still ways you can contribute to a team, and today’s guide will help you make the most of the Splatfest even if you aren’t a pro player.

December 22: A new Splatfest is starting soon for Splatoon 3, with an event planned based around the holidays. The theme asks how you spend it. Do you spend time with friends, family, or by yourself?

You’ll be able to give input when the Splatest is held on January 13, 2024. However, players will be able to pick their team earlier on January 5. Note that you’ll be able to get involved at any point – even after the Splatfest begins – so choosing right away isn’t mandatory.

Nintendo has just released a new update for Splatoon 3, bringing us to version 6.0.2.

Two main issues are being addressed here: first is that players who did not receive their proper rewards following the latest Big Run should now be able to obtain them (update 6.0.1 also tried addressing this issue, but was unfortunately unsuccesful). Second is that the Splattercolor Screen special has been adjusted to make its visual effects less intense, as many members in the community were experiencing severe discomfort from it. A few other small fixes are also included.

Here’s the full rundown of the update:

Splatoon 3 Tournament Manager

July 26: Nintendo has revealed the Splatoon 3 Tournament Manager, a brand new feature in the works for the Switch shooter.

According to the official announcement, it will “help support the creation of private tournaments using the Private Battle feature”. Nintendo intends for it to link Splatoon 3 to the SplatNet 3 service “to help players create and manage tournaments on demand.”
