Splatoon 2 is hosting the first ever tournament style splatfest in the coming weeks. Nintendo is collaborating with Nickelodeon to celebrate the release of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The new TMNT series does not release until this September, but that is not stopping anyone from getting on the hype train early. As of yesterday April 27th, players were able to visit Inkopolis Square in the game and vote for their favorite turtles. The point of the splatfest is to show these characters love and represent them over the course of two weeks.
This is how the tournament will be broken down: Raphael and Leonardo will go toe to toe on May 4th until the next day on the 5th and Michaelangelo and Donatello will do the same on May 11th. The final round will take place on May 18th until the next day on the 19th. Each round lasts 24 hours beginning at 9 pm PT on the first day.
During the tournament players will be able to earn Super Sea Snails. They will be able to purchase and upgrade new gear. New TMNT themed costumes will also be available during this time. Some are already declaring Michaelangelo the winner of the tournament. This seems like the most obvious choice, but some might even say the safest choice as well. If one wants to make sure this splatfest stays interesting- then they should make their vote count.
What would you like the next splatfest theme to be? The game is a huge hit and proves to have long legs in playability over time. Do not limit your suggestions and make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media. Do not also forget that the voting has also already begun in Inkopolis Square! Go show the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles some everlasting love.
