Splatoon 2

Yesterday, Famitsu announced the release of the Splatoon Koshien 2019 Fanbook for March 4th (price: 1 500 Yen + taxes). It will include all the various Famitsu reports about the Splatoon Koshien 2019 tournaments around Japan, complete with many pictures of each one. The book will come with some extras:

  • a Serial Code for some exclusive gear (more details about that below)
  • a clear file
  • a special seal

Here’s details about the exclusive pieces of Gear:

Ouen Parka (Tako ver.) (Cheering Parka, Octoling Ver.)

  • Brand: SquidForce
  • Gear Ability: Main Power Up
  • Rarity: 3

Koshien Bandana

  • Brand: SquidForce
  • Gear Ability: Swim Speed Up
  • Rarity: 3

NB: do note names are translated from Japanese, but it’s not clear whether European and North American players will also get access to it. Considering you need to buy a book only sold in Japan, it’s unlikely there will be a distribution outside that country.

Finally, here’s the recording of the livestream for the online tournament (part of the Splatoon Koshien 2019) that was held this week-end in Japan:
