Splatoon 2 might have technically waved off its last Splatfest some time ago (15 months ago, in fact), but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from reviving the format for 2020 – and its Splatfest reprisals continue next week with the return of 2018’s Halloween-themed Splatoween.
This appropriately ghoulish global Splatfest event begins at 10pm on Friday, 30th October, in the UK, and concludes two days later on Sunday, 1st November. As before, Inkopolis Square will receive a spookily gloopy makeover, and those eager to participate can sign up to battle under the banner of either Team Trick or Team Treat.
The celebrations spill over into the maps themselves with players able to – assuming things remains as before – fight it out on spooksomely bedecked versions of Moray Towers, Starfish Mainstage, and Musselforge Fitness. Expect a neon orange and slime green hue to your inky discharge too, just for good measure.
