Special merch for our friends in Japan
How do you keep the excitement going for your biggest title of the year? You use it to promote the next big release you have in the works, of course! That’s exactly what Nintendo’s doing with the upcoming Splatoon 3 X Pokemon Splatfest, which takes place November 11th, 2022.
While we already know the details of this Splatfest and have seen some special goodies up for grabs in the West, our friends in Japan once again get the best merch of all. First up is the above keychain options, which are available through My Nintendo Japan. There’s one keychain for each Splatfest option, and each is priced at 50 Platinum Points.
Along with that, Nintendo has revealed that select game retailers and Pokemon Centers in Japan will have a special sticker campaign. If you head to these stores and pre-order Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, you’ll get to take home a special Splatoon 3 X Pokémon collaborative sticker.
Finally, these retailers will also have polling stations where you can cast your vote on which Splatfest faction you’re throwing your support at.
