Celebrating the one year anniversary of Splatoon 2, Nintendo just announced the next global Splatfest: Squid Vs Octopus.
If you don’t know, Splatfests are celebratory times in Splatoon 2 where you can champion one of two special causes. Turf War wins during this time will help your side out, and the winning side is determined by popularity, Solo Win percentage, and Team Win percentage.
The Splatfest will be:
7/20 (Fri) 9:00 p.m. PT – 7/21 (Sat) 9:00 p.m. PT
Which sea creature is your favorite, Squid or Octopus?
Yes, that’s a lot to wrap your tentacles around…but that’s not all! To make the event more special, players on Team Squid will play as Inklings, and players on Team Octopus will play as Octolings. Even if you don’t have the Octo Expansion, if you’re reppin’ Team Octopus, you’ll play as Octolings. On the other hand, those fighting for Team Squid will play as Inklings even if their usual character is set to Octoling. Yes, this Splatfest really makes you think (emphasis on the “ink”).
Secret Note #1: Your appearance will only change during Splatfest battles. In the Square, you’ll appear as your usual rad self.
Secret Note #2: Due to the global nature of this Splatfest, Judd and Li'l Judd will need some additional time to calculate the results. Results will be posted 7/22.
