Splatoon 3 'Splatfest' World Premiere demo taking place on Aug. 27th, 2022, will feature tri-colored Turf Wars
Rock, paper, or scissors?
Instead of doing a “Global Testfire” as with the first two Splatoon games, Nintendo has announced that they’ll be hosting a Splatfest world premiere for Splatoon 3. It is now available to pre-load via the Nintendo eShop, and an in-game tutorial will be playable starting on August 25th, 2022, with the Splatfest taking place on August 27th from 9:00AM PT until 9:00PM PT as a limited time demo, regardless of whether or not you’ve pre-purchased the full game. As always, a Nintendo Switch Online subscription will be required to play, but a 7-day free trial will be given to everyone that downloads the demo.
Splatfests in Splatoon 3 will now feature two halves, with the first half having teams compete in traditional 4v4 Turf War battles, and the second half being exclusive tri-color Turf War battles, where 3 teams fight simultaneously. “The top team will face a pincer attack from 2 players on the 2nd place team & 2 players on the 3rd place team.” The theme of the Splatfest world premiere is rock, paper, scissors, and you’ll have to pick one of those teams to fight for.
