A while back, Nintendo announced a second bonus Splatfest for Splatoon 2. Following the Team Mayo vs Team Ketchup battle from May – a throwback to the first ever Splatfest three years ago – players must once again answer the age-old conundrum: which came first, the chicken or egg?
The 48-hour Splatfest will begin at 11pm GMT / 3pm PT, and players will once again have temporary access to the Splatfest Tee in support of their chosen team. Two more Splatfests have been confirmed and “will be arriving before the end of March 2021”, according to Nintendo’s social media pages.
In Splatoon 2, Splatfests are special battles where players join one of two teams with vastly differing opinions on all sorts of topics, e.g. is cake or ice cream better? Both factions must duke it out with opponents around the world in Turf War battles, where the team who coats the stage with the most ink before the allotted time runs out is deemed the winner. When the tournament rounds off at the end of the week, the winning team will be announced before receiving bonus goodies as a reward.
