This Wednesday Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct focused on Splatoon 3, the next Nintendo Switch exclusive that will arrive on the hybrid consoles on September 9. During the Nintendo Direct it was announced that the first splatfest of Splatoon 3 will arrive before the launch of the game, so all Nintendo Switch players will be able to play it for free.
Splatfests are Splatoon events that started in the first game, which came to the Nintendo Switch in 2015. The second game came in 2017 alongside new Splatfests, which are events where players choose a team and then compete online. to generate points. The custom was that players chose between two themes, but in Splatoon 3 the Splatfest will be 3 options.
Also: 6 features of Nissan e-power technology that explain how it works.
The first Splatoon 3 Splatfest will take place on August 27, 2022 between 9 am and 9 pm PDT (11 am to 11 pm CDMX). The three teams this time around are “Rock, Paper, Scissors”, so players will have to pick one and then make points online to improve your team’s score.
The first Splatoon games featured an idol duo each, but in the case of Splatoon 3 it has featured a three-member group known as the Deep Cut, named Frye, Shiver, and Big Man.
As Nintendo describes, the event will consist of two phases. First, the 4v4 Turf War confrontations that characterize the game will take place, but after a certain period of play the Splatfest will change to a new mode called “Tricolor Turf War”, where three teams compete to dominate the stage by painting it. The team that is winning the Splatfest starts in the middle of the stage, while the others appear on the edges.
