Splatoon 2 Splatfest Cake Ice Cream

During today's Splatoon 2 Direct, the first of many Splatfests for Splatoon 2 was announced. This time, it'll take place before the release of the game. On July 15 from 3 PM PT - 7 PM PT anyone can try out the World Premiere Splatfest. If you live in Europe, the time is shifted to a more reasonable hour: the event starts at 6 PM CEST. Make sure to download the demo from the eshop anytime before the demo if you want to participate in the event!

Like the first Splatoon, Splatfests in Splatoon 2 will pit two related things against each other. The theme of this Splatfest is Cake vs. Ice Cream. Players will need to choose a side before participating in what is usually 24 hours of Turf War battles. You'll be matched with teams that made the same choice as you and when all is said and done members of the winning team will be rewarded with in-game items. Team winners are determined by a combination of win percentage and popularity.

If you have a strong opinion about the premiere birthday treat or just want another chance to try Splatoon 2 or Splatfests before the game releases on July 21, make sure to tune in for the Splatfest. And if the whole idea sounds rather juvenile to you, hear me out when I say that Splatfests were the highlight of the original Splatoon for me. Give them a try, and happy splatting!
