Splatfest are special 24 hour long events that take place regularly in Splatoon. During those, players have to answer a question (like “Do you prefer cats or dogs?”), before joining a team depending on their answer. At the end of each Splatfest, the team with the most points win, based on popularity and number of battles won.
The 11th Splatfest took place at the same time worldwide, but we’re back to a more “normal” schedule for the 12th one.
Today, Nintendo announced that the 12th Splatfest for Europe would take place next week, on March 19th and March 20th. Once again, the theme is completely different from the one used in Japan (and most likely in North America too, though it hasn’t been announced yet): “Would you rather have a jetpack or a hoverboard?”. In other words: are you more a fan of Back to the Future or Pilotwings?
- Europe: 7PM, on March 19th
- UK: 6PM, on March 19th
- North America (ET): 1PM, on March 19th
- North America (PT): 10AM, on March 19th
- Japan: 3AM, on March 20th
As usual, this Splatfest is only for players with a European copy of Splatoon.
Just like Europe, the next Splatfest will take place next week-end in North America. Unsurprisingly, the theme is completely different from the one used in Europe: “Would you rather build a Snowman or a Sandcastle?”. It will take place next Saturday, at the same time as pretty much all the previous Splatfests.
- North America (ET): March 19th (12AM)
- North America (PT): March 18th (9PM)
- Europe: March 19th (5AM)
- UK: March 12th (4AM)
- Japan: March 12th (1PM)
As always, this Splatfest is only for players with a North American copy of Splatoon.
Thanks whipfair for the heads up and screenshot.
Today, the Squid Research Lab announced that the 12th Splatfest for Japan would take place next week-end.

Do you go All Guns Blazing, or are you Cautious?”
