A minor issue, a simple fix
Ahead of this week’s Gear/Grub/Fun Splatfest in Splatoon 3, Nintendo has warned of a bit of an issue. It’s not a major one, but certainly something that should be noted by players.
Nintendo has stated on Twitter that there’s currently an issue where Splatoon 3 players who have not yet picked a Splatfest team will still receive conch shells. These shells may disappear and will not be counted toward the Splatfest results.
In order to avoid this issue, Nintendo suggests you pick a Splatfest team before the Splatfest kicks off. Again, not a big problem by any means, but something you can easily avoid before the action begins this Friday.
