To celebrate Splatoon 2’s third anniversary, Nintendo have announced that they’re reviving another classic question for another one-off Splatfest. This time next month, players will be picking between Chicken and Egg and fighting for their side’s dominance.
And make sure to stay fresh, because two more bonus #Splatoon2 Splatfests will be arriving before the end of March 2021!

But that’s not all for Splatoon 2 fans, because they’ve got two more Splatfests planned for later in 2020 and early 2021!
Splatfests have the playing community pick a side and then battle it out for superiority, whether it’s Trick or Treat for Halloween, or deciding the future of the series with a battle for Order or Chaos, which was the final Splatfest for the game last July.
But it’s turned out that the “final” Splatfest for Splatoon 2 wasn’t quite so final after all. Nintendo held a one-off Ketchup vs. Mayonnaise Splatfest rerun in April, while also promoting their multiplayer shooter with a time-limited demo.
The main event for longtime fans of the game, though, is the revived Splatfest limited-time event. These have the playing community pick a side and then battle it out for superiority, whether it’s Trick or Treat for Halloween, or deciding the future of the series with a battle for Order or Chaos, which was the final Splatfest for the game last July.
Splatoon 2’s easily one of my favourite games on Switch, with Nintendo’s unusual shooter standing out from the crowd. In our Splatoon 2 review, I wrote:
“A fairly straightforward sequel to one of the Wii U’s best games, Splatoon 2’s unique take on the online multiplayer shooter is as fresh as ever on Switch. Nintendo still have one foot in the past with online functionality, stubbornly sticking to their (paint) guns when they should be learning from others, but these flaws are easily covered up once you get into a game. At its heart, Splatoon 2 is a second helping of one of the most inventive shooters of the last decade.”
