Splatoon‘s Splatfests are coming to an end, with one epic battle between Callie and Marie’s fans. Nintendo has been doing all sorts of things to celebrate this conclusion, and one of them was to forgo their standard practice of choosing the Splatfest’s stages themselves—instead, they let Nintendo Network ID holders vote for their preferred stages. The results of those polls have now been published, as have the final selection of stages for the event!
The three stages will be Kelp Dome, Moray Towers, and Walleye Warehouse, after each of those came in first in at least one polling area. The full breakdown is below, but to sum up the winners: Japan chose Walleye, North America and Europe both favored Moray Towers, and other regions of the world chose the Kelp Dome. These show up at some point in the top five choices of every region, so it’s hard to argue with their selection—despite, I’m aware, many of our friends, readers, and fellow staff members apparently disliking Moray quite a bit. Maybe it was trolls, or maybe we’re just in the minority; either way, these are the choices.
Be sure to join in on the festivities this Friday, starting at 5:00 AM Eastern / 2:00 AM Pacific. What do you think of these stages? Did your personal choice get selected, or are you annoyed by the chosen battlefields? I know I’m a bit saddened that my own pick, Saltspray Rig, shows up nowhere in any of the top fives, but I’ll still be around to fight it out. Will you? Let us know in the comments!
