Following a day of intense battles, the latest North American Splatfest in Splatoon has ended. It’s now time to find out who prevailed: Team Early Bird or Team Night Owl.

Team Night Owl dominated in popularity (71 percent), and also had a slight majority in wins (51 percent). Thanks to that, they came out on top. The final score was 377 points for Team Night Owl and 323 points for Team Early Bird.


The newest Splatfest is now up and running in North America. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

This weekend’s Splatfest will last until 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET tomorrow. Soon after it ends, the results will be published.

Splatoon doesn’t have an official VR version, but fans are trying to make it a reality. A hack is being developed which features a Sony HMD headset, a modded water gun controller, and a GamePad strapped to the player’s back.

You can see how the results are panning out thus far below. The team is currently on version 3.0 of the interface.
