Tomorrow begins the true final countdown for the next big game on the Nintendo Switch: Splatoon 2. Now, while it’s true that it arrives one week from today, tomorrow will feature the first ever Splatfest for the game. Splatfests are special events within Splatoon that have players picking a side on a debate and fighting for their side in Turf War battles. The winners (and even the losers) get special prizes for participating and earning a lot of points.
Now usually players go into Splatfests with their own loadouts so that they can dominate (or at least try to). But since the game isn’t out yet, that has some people confused on how Nintendo will let this go. Well, Nintendo answered this on their own website, where they detailed the weapon loadouts you can have in the special Splatfest Demo that is available now in the Nintendo eShop.
Players can choose from one of four pre-made sets for weapon loadouts. Each set has their own pros and cons in terms of how the weapons work. It’s up to you to determine how well the weapons work in your hands, and whether you’ll be able to use them effectively in the Splatfest. What’s more, Nintendo revealed that Starfish Mainstage Inkblot Art Academy, Moray Towers, and Humpback Pump Track will be the stages for the Splatfest. Which means you’ll get a taste of not only classic Splatoon courses, but also Splatoon 2’s new stages as well.
The Splatfest will be four hours long, and you must have the Splatoon 2 Splatfest demo to play it, so be sure to get yours downloaded onto your Switch. Then, let us know which side you’re choosing for it: Ice Cream or Cake!
