Debut Splatfest Kicks Off July 4th Weekend

Although it’s coming after a slight delay here on Western shores, it’s almost time for the first ever Splatoon American / European Splatfest! The delay came out of matchmaking and connection problems in the first Japanese event, so as long as everything runs smoothly over here, we’re fairly certain the players will appreciate the need to delay the tournament for greater stability.

The Splatfest is an online challenge where players all choose a side—in this case, cats vs. dogs in North America—and then fight for your side in online Turf War matches. The event will run for 24 hours, beginning at 3pm EST on July 4th.

If you’re planning to battle it out in Splatfest, be sure to log in and choose a side!
