Worth it!

Nintendo has already revealed numerous ways in which they're going all-out on the final Splatoon 2 Splafest, but they've shared one more tidbit today. This last Splatfest, running from July 18th to 21st, 2019, will give players a 100 times better chance of getting in on the 100x Battle, in which your contribution points will be multiplied by 100 if you win. Talk about a major experience boost!

Notice me, Senpai!

The final Splatfest is making its way to Splatoon 2 on July 18th, 2019, and it's set to be a major send-off for the events. Every previous Shifty Station is returning with some new tweaks, which you can see in the gallery above. The gallery also includes a rundown of when each Shift Station will be appearing.

On top of that, we now know that the final new Shifty Station is going to be called “Dear Senpai,” and was designed by Pearl herself. This Shifty Station will include the Pearl Bomb and Senpai Cannon (from the Octo Expansion), and there's rumors that Pearl and Marina will appear together for an Off the Hook performance as well!

Splatoon 2 'Unicorn Vs. Narwhal' Splatfest artwork released

One of life's toughest questions

The Splatoon 2 Unicorn Vs. Narwhal Splatfest kicks off on June 14th, 2019, and Nintendo has shared some absolutely majestic art to promote the battle. Which team are you siding with?

Food fight

The next Splatfest in Japan asks players if they like pineapple with their sweet and sour pork. We've already mentioned the Splatfest in a previous post, but today we get the official artwork for the battle. While it's unfamiliar to me, I'm guessing this is a hot topic of food discussion in Japan?
