Splatoon 2 Splatfest Pits Two Sides of Geek Against Each Other

Sci-Fi! Fantasy! Select your geek fandom of choice and prepare to do battle in Splatoon 2's next Splatfest!


It's been a strong month for Nintendo Switch. But if anyone can pull themselves from Super Mario Odyssey or Doom long enough, it may be time to return to Splatoon 2.

The next Splatoon 2 Splatfest will pit two sides of geekdom against one another. It's Sci-Fi vs. Fantasy, in a matchup that's straight out of "Phineas & Ferb."

The Splatfest is set to kick off on Friday, November 17 at 9PM PT and run for 24 hours. That'll give players a week to declare their allegiance. Simply walk up to the designated billboard around the center of Inkopolis Square and pick a side.

Who will emerge victorious between the futuristic space nerds and the sword-and-shield fantasy geeks? Come back next weekend to see who comes out on top.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
