Splatoon 2: all you need to know about Splatfests (schedule, results, etc.)

Splatoon 2

Update: looking for details about the content updates for Splatoon 2 (new maps, Gear, weapons)? Then check out this post!

***

Splatfest are special in-game events taking place in Splatoon 2. You have to choose between two teams, depending on your answer to a given theme (for example: “What do you prefer, Cats or Dogs?”). Once you’ve selected your team, you take part in several 4 vs 4 battles, with one goal: make your team win, and prove your choice was the best one!

One thing to note about Splatfests is that once you’ve selected your team, you cannot change it: you have to stick with it until the bitter (or sweet) end! But this time around, you can choose to play on your own, or play with friends if you don’t like to play solo (but only with friends who voted for the same team).

After voting, you get a t-shirt that you will wear during the Splatfest. You can actually upgrade it and its Abilities before the event, by using it during the matches. The t-shirt has Ability Doubler.

From the time the Splatfest is announced up until the end of the event, you can send support messages for your team via the mail box found in the plaza.

At the end of each Splatfest, you get some Super Sea Snails (based on your performance during the event, and whether your team win or not). Those Super Sea Snails can be given to Murch, who can improve your Gear (to add Ability slots, etc.). You have to collect them before the next Splatfest is announced.

The results are based on the following:

  • the total amount of votes for each Team
  • the results for Solo play
  • the results for Team play

In this post, we’re going to list everything about the Splatfests as they’re announce: schedule, themes, results. This post will be updated regularly as new festivals are announced, so stay tuned!
