It’s been over seven months since Nintendo launched
Splatoon 2, the Switch sequel to their hottest new IP. The Splatoon series has a heavy focus on online multiplayer, and Nintendo keeps the online community engaged with regular Splatfest competitions that divide players based on their answers to fun questions.
This week’s Splatfest (in North America and Europe) pits players against each other with the age old question: “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” The battle begins on Friday, March 9th, at 8:00 PM Pacific / 11:00 PM Eastern and will last for the usual 24 hours. Will you be fighting for the truth of Team Egg, or do you side with the Chickens?
Meanwhile in Japan, the latest Splatfest just wrapped up. Japan’s latest inky bout asked players if they prefer “dumplings or flowers,” which is akin to asking if you prefer the practical or the aesthetic. Dumplings won the popularity contest easily with 57% of the votes, but Team Flower won out in solo and team battles, taking the 2-1 victory overall.
