Splatoon™ 3: Don’t miss the Splatoon x Pokémon Splatfest this weekend! – Official Nintendo Site

It’s time to make your final choice, everyone. The second Splatfest* for the Splatoon™ 3 the game is almost upon us, and it’s going to be great!

But let’s take a step back. Splatfests are special in-game events in Splatoon 3: they are festivals with fancy floats, catchy music and impossible decisions. Impossible decisions like this: When choosing your Pokémon partner, what type would you choose? Grass-type, Fire-type, or Water-type?

Put on your thinking hat because this event will be: Friday, November 11 at 4 p.m. to Sunday, November 13 at 4 p.m. PT.

So… what is a Splatfest?

Splatfests are special limited-time events in Splatoon 3 where players choose to champion one of three causes. After making your choice, you’ll represent your team in Splatfest Battles, where the goal is to ink as much of the stage as you can without getting splattered too often. A final winning side will be declared at the end of the Splatest, answering the question once and for all**!

How do I choose a side?

After starting the game, go to the little stall in Splatsville to choose your destination. This Pokemon question is super hard, so follow your heart. After all, you won’t be able to change your mind after choosing!

After choosing, you are given a t-shirt from the game that is worn during the event. This jersey comes with a special ability: Ability Doubler (true to its name, it doubles the effect of other team abilities attached to this gear).

Oh, one more thing for Sneak Peek and Splatfest deadlines: Every time you level up your catalog, you also get something called a Conch Shell. These guys can be redeemed at the machine in the Lobby for some fun goodies. Redeem early and redeem often! After all, they can’t be used for anything else.

What else changes during a Splatfest?

Lots of things do! In addition to how Splatsville looks and sounds, these Splatfest Battle types will replace the normal ones: Open, Pro, and (halfway through the event) Tricolor. In “Open” you can enter a match with a group of friends. Choose “Pro” if you’re more of a solo player – all team members will be random.

How do I play Tricolor Turf War?

This mode is new to Splatoon 3 and it’s 2v4v2 matches. Halfway through Splatfest, choose the Tricolor option when choosing a mode in the Lobby. You’re not guaranteed a Tricolor match, but it’s the only way they’ll appear in rotation.

Basically, the team of four starts in the middle of the map and is trying to defend their turf against the other two attacking teams (who are technically working together in this mode, but can still hit each other!). He still needs to ink the most ground to win, but the pressure is on defenders to hold their ground.

The defending team (which is also the current first place team of the Splatfest), also needs to defend something called Ultra Signal. If anyone on the attacking teams touches the Ultra Signal for long enough, a Sprinkler of Doom will be summoned onto the battlefield to spray ink everywhere. It’s as intense as the name “Sprinkler of Doom”.

What do you get for winning a Splatfest?

Well, the winner has bragging rights, of course! But if you’re looking for something more material, everyone who participates will get Super Sea Snails after Splatfest. The winning side will get more (obviously).

Talk to Murch hanging out in the lobby if you’re not sure what to do with them. The short version is that Super Sea Snails can be used as a shortcut to upgrading your gear and gaining abilities that better suit your needs.

secret pro tip

Psst, do you want some pro advice? If you’re looking for skill shards, talk to Murch during the Splatfest. Cleaning your Splatfest Tee gear is a lot cheaper than normal, so you can clean a dub a lot more than usual and get a lot more skill shards. Let the good bits roll!
