Splatoon 2: Famitsu Squid Fashion Contest 2017 announced

This week, Splatoon 2 is finally releasing (on July 21st, worldwide), and naturally, it will be prominently featured in Famitsu this week. The magazine will have no less than 48 pages entirely dedicated to the game, with recap of previously revealed details, a big interview with the developers, special contributions from various artists, a B3-size poster (double-face), and more.

More importantly, Famitsu is hosting the Famitsu Squid Fashion Contest 2017 (just like the one for Splatoon). Players will be able to submit illustrations for new Gear, and the winning entry will be added to the game. But this time around, there’s two categories:

  • Gear
  • Graffiti

The magazine held a similar contest for Splatoon, and the winning entry was indeed added to the game as part of a free update. The best part: all players got it, not just those in Japan (same for other collaboration content, such as the Ika Musume / Squid Girl outfit).

More details about the Famitsu Squid Fashion Contest 2017 will be shared in the magazine and on the Famitsu website, on Thursday (Wednesday afternoon/evening in Europe and North America).

Back to the magazine itself, Famitsu will have various details about the first 38 weapons, the various stages and rules available at launch, but also Hero Mode, Salmon Run, and more.

There will also be contributions (such as illustrations) from famous artists, such as:

  • Masahiro Anbe (creator of the Ika Musume / Squid Girl manga and well-known Splatoon fan)
  • Kanahei
  • Choboraunyopomi
  • Namori
  • Hyougonosuke
  • Ume
  • Takahashi Kino
  • toi8 (chara-designer for Tokyo Mirage Session #FE)
  • Nyoro Melon
  • Maeda-kun
  • and more…

As for the interview, it will be 8-pages long, with the following people:

  • Hisashi Nogami (Producer)
  • Yusuke Amano (Director)
  • Seita Inoue (Art Director)
  • Shintaro Sato (Programmer)
