The Last Ever Splatoon Splatfest Starts On July 22nd

It’s Callie vs. Marie in the final Splatoon Splatfest from July 22nd to 24th, asking players to pick and then fight for their favourite of the two Squid Sisters. I know, I know… it’s a difficult choice to make, but you’ve got a few weeks in which to make your mind up.

And they’re coming on the campaign trail – kind of – with a bunch of Splatoon related releases and events. Callie and Marie will appear at Japan Expo in Paris on July 8th via projection alongside a live band. The two will also be immortalised as amiibo that same day, alongside recoloured versions of the Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl and Inkling Squid.


Rounding out the month on July 28th, three Squid Sisters songs – “City of Colour”, “Ink Me Up” and “Calamari Inkantation” – will be added to Wii Karaoke U. Splatoon itself is getting a 25% off sale on the eShop, down to £25.99.

There’s been a lot of love for Nintendo’s quirky take on the multiplayer shooter over the year since its release, both from the millions of people who bought the game and also from Nintendo themselves. With fairly regular patches, new maps and plenty of new items and weapons added, the Japanese giant have been pretty generous, so as they’re seemingly winding things down, now’s as good a time as any to dive back in and revisit one of the Wii U’s best.

Still, who are you going to support? Callie or Marie? Choose wisely.
