Splatoon players in Europe can now begin participating in the latest Splatfest. The two teams are hoverboard vs. jet pack. Which one do you prefer?

Like all Splatfests, this competition will run for a full day. Expect the results soon after it ends.

Splatoon’s 12th North American Splatfest is now up and running. The two teams are based on the following question: would you rather build a snowman or a sand castle?

Splatoon players will have until this time tomorrow (12 AM ET / 9 PM PT) to participate in the new Splatfest. Soon after it ends, the results will be shared.


Update: Play-Asia is taking pre-orders here.

We’ve seen real-life renditions of Splatoon weapons before, but there’s one that is being made into a new product. HVM has added in a listing for a Splattershot squirt gun, which will be sold in Japan starting on July 18 for 2,700 yen. It looks a bit similar to Target’s purchase bonus from last year!



Just like in Europe, Splatoon’s 12th Splatfest will be held in North America next week. The theme is different in the states though, with players being asked if they’d rather build a snowman or a sand castle.

This new Splatfest will begin on March 19 at 12 AM ET / March 18 at 9 PM PT. It’ll last for a full day, and Nintendo will post the results soon after the competition ends.

Thanks to StreetPass_SW for the tip.

Splatoon’s latest Japanese Splatfest was once again game-themed. Dragon Quest was featured, with the topic being “Let’s keep going” (think being aggressive) as represented by She-slime versus “Cherish your life” (more along the lines of playing it safe), which was represented by Healslime.

This Splatfest has now drawn to a close, and the results are in. In the end, the Healslime side won thanks to an edge in both wins and popularity. The final score was 366 to 334.
