Splatoon 2 – Springfest Splatfest
Nintendo and the Squid Research Lab have announced another seasonal event for Splatoon 2, called Springfest. As the name implies, it celebrates Spring, which is certainly colourful in the Inkling world! There will be a special Splatfest, which lasts 48 hours. While it’s live, Inkopolis will sport special decorations, that will make you wonder whether you didn’t just eat too much unicorn chocolate.
The theme of this Splatfest is Hare vs Tortoise, and it will take place from April 19th to April 21st worldwide. As usual, you can find all details about this Splatfest on our dedicated page!
And just like with the previous seasonal events, players will be able to get special pieces of Gear via the Splatoon 2 News Channel on Nintendo Switch. Here’s all the goodies that will be distributed:
- Orange Novelty Visor
- Pink Novelty Visor
- Purple Novelty Visor
- Green Novelty Visor
- Pearl-Scout Lace-Ups
- Pearlescent Squidkid IV
- Marination Lace-Ups
- Rine Squidkid IV
- Pearl Punk Crowns
- New-Day Arrows
- Trooper Power Stripes
- Midnight Slip-Ons
Those pieces of Gear are certainly colourful, and it’s said their design has been supervised by Pearl and Marina themselves. Unfortunately, it’s not clear when exactly they will be available, but we will make sure to let you know when they are.
