Take part in ESL Splatoon 2 Community Cups for a chance to win Splatoon Merchandise!


ESL are hosting a series of Splatoon 2 Community Cups every Wednesday and Saturday evening throughout November, with Splatoon merchandise up for grabs for the winning teams!

Whether you have an organised group of Inklings at the ready, or you’re a solo squid looking for a squad, please visit the ESL page by clicking here to sign up for the online tournaments.

To support this friendly competition, we at Nintendo UK want to see the best video clips that those in the tournament can capture using their Nintendo Switch, and we have more Splatoon merchandise available for the best clips from each competition.

From skilful multi-splats and tactical deployment of Special weapons, to tense Tower holds or just some poetic team movement, simply share your best gameplay clips to Twitter using the hashtags #Splatoon2 and #ESLSplatoon and the best snippets, as judged by an independent judge, will win themselves some goodies worthy of Flow herself!

Not sure how to capture and edit video clips on Nintendo Switch? No problem! You can discover all the details here.

Every Thursday and Monday from 16th November 2017 to 27th November 2017 we’ll pick four winners from all entries received by midnight on the day of each tournament. Each winner will receive a random piece of Splatoon merchandise. We’ll be retweeting our favourite clips throughout the competition, so even if you’re not taking part you’ll get to see what the freshest Inklings around are up to!
