Splatoon 2’s Splatfest is Coming to a Switch Near You


If you didn’t get enough of Splatoon on the Nintendo Wii U, you wait is almost over as the support for the Wii U game had recently ended as far as new content goes. With only two weeks left until the launch of Nintendo’s upcoming title Splatoon 2, you no doubt are wanting to get a taste for the game before its launch, and see what is new.

As we approach the launch of Splatoon 2 there’s no doubt that Nintendo is going to want to do a test on the games dedicated servers. Since it does run on those, Nintendo has announced that the global Splatoon 2 Splatfest will start on July 15th. If you are a Nintendo Switch owner, you have openly been invited to join the test by downloading the app, and prepare to get your ink face on.

Nintendo Has Revealed Post-Release Support


With the game being a team-based shooter, Nintendo has announced they will once more be supporting the game with free content. This content includes new stages, new weapons, and other content such as gear. The first item in the line-up is a new weapon called the Brella, which is an umbrella-shaped ink gun that can fire off ink or it can double up as a shield when you hold down the firing button.

Nintendo has also announced that they will hold regular Splatfests competitions in the game for up to two years after its launch. They have also reaffirmed the fact that some stages from the first Splatoon will be making their way into Splatoon 2. This includes a newly updated version of Moray Towers, which means some more fun there, and a chance to see a return to Port Mackerel.

Unlike the first game, weapons will be listed into three new categories. These include Main, Sub, and Specials. You’ll get to see these go into action on July 15th when the Splatfest begins. Will we see you there? Let us know in the comments.
