The next, and final, Splatfest has been revealed. The theme will be Callie vs. Marie, with the two Squid Sisters (and fans) finally settling the great debate. The Splatfest will start at 2 AM PST on July 22, and will finish at 2AM July 24. It will be a worldwide Splatfest, with scores from each region being totaled (although the top 100 players from each region will be signaled out individually). Players can start getting their Splatfest shirts on July 4, at 7 PM PST.

As unfortunate as it is, Chinese companies creating blatant ripoffs of Nintendo products is nothing out of the ordinary. But the newest mobile game may take the cake as the worst offender yet.

In the attached gallery, we have a look at Sepia Go!, one of the newest titles from China. It should only take a second to realize that what we have here is something that is attempting to mimic Splatoon in every way – from the art to the characters to the gameplay. Nintendo should be none to happy with these sorts of things floating around out there.

Thanks to Stephen Lv for originally pointing this out to us.

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.

Splatoon’s 15th Japanese Splatfest just wrapped up a little while ago. The results are now in, which were extremely close.

Splatoon’s new Splatfest was run in partnership with Meiji, with players asked to choose one of two sides: Kinoko no Yama (Mountain of Mushrooms) or Takenoko no Sato (Bamboo Shoot Village). Thanks to Takenoko no Sato’s popularity (63 percent), that side squeaked out a win despite having a slightly lower percentage of wins. The final score was 351 points for Takenoko no Sato and 349 points for Kinoko no Yama.
