Films or Books? The next Splatfest starts on December 9th in Splatoon 2!

Bookworms and movie maestros, prepare for the storytelling showdown of a lifetime! The next European Splatfest is on its way this weekend, deciding once and for all which is better – the excitement of a film, or the joy of a book. What a novel idea! Ahem…
Some say a picture is worth a thousand words, and there are thousands of pictures in a film... But perhaps whoever said that was just a lousy writer. However you feel, pick a side in-game and fight your case! Just don’t forget the popcorn (or your reading glasses, if you prefer).
It’s all set to start at 15:00 UK time on December 9th and ends at 15:00 UK time on December 10th, with the results being revealed by Pearl and Marina shortly afterwards.
Fans of the moving picture should also remember that you can now record video footage in Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch by pressing and holding the Capture Button!* Then you can upload your most glorious Splatfest moments to social media for the world to see.**
How do I get involved?
You can pick a side in-game right now! Just visit the voting terminal in Inkopolis Square, choose a side and pick up your Splatfest Tee.
How can I prepare for the Splatfest?
Got your Splatfest Tee? You can work on filling its ability slots beforehand by playing in regular Turf Wars, so that you’re already at your best when the Splatfest starts.
What’s in it for me?
Super Sea Snails are awarded after the results are in depending on how you performed and whether your team won or not. These can be used to upgrade your gear, all you need to do is head to Murch in Inkopolis Square and have a little chat with him. He’s pretty keen on Super Sea Snails.
See you on Saturday for this melee of mediums, Inklings!
