Nintendo Declares Winners of Splatoon 3 'Enter the Splatlands' & Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Championship Cup 2022 Invitational Tournaments
Congrats to the winners!
On Sept. 5th, 2022, some ink-redibly skilled Inklings and Octolings took PAX West 2022 by storm at Nintendo’s very first Splatoon 3 tournament. Some of the top players from the Splatoon 2 Inkopolis Showdown 2022 tournament were invited to take the stage at the PAX Arena in the Seattle Convention Center for Nintendo’s Splatoon 3 Enter the Splatlands Invitational 2022 tournament, and they put on quite the show.
The talented competitors all valiantly attempted to splat and Squid Surge their way to victory in Splatoon 3, and when the dust in the Splatlands had settled, and gallons of ink had been slung, Nintendo officially crowned Starburst the champions of the tournament. Starburst ultimately defeated three other top-ranked Splatoon teams to emerge as this year’s champs, taking home the coveted Judd and Li’l Judd trophy.
The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Championship Cup 2022 invitational was also held at PAX West. Twelve racers from this summer’s Mario Kart North American Open July 2022 tournament competed in eight races to decide the fastest racer, with Strike emerging victorious as the Grand Prize winner.
