Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 has settled some of the most widely debated topics throughout human history with its community-driven Splatfest event. Now, Splatoon 2 is hosting its winter-themed Splatfest where players worldwide will be tasked with choosing who they’ll be spending the holidays with… family or friends.

Finally, you can stick it to your uncle who keeps bringing up politics at the family dinner table. Or that cousin who dropped your Nintendo Switch on your aunt’s hardwood floor. Maybe I’m a little biased here… but I know where my loyalties lie. You can check out some new screenshots of the in-game celebration down below.

Like the Halloween-themed event, Inkopolis will be getting a winter makeover. The city looks kind of strange though. I expected more flashy neon colors and striking white lights but instead, it looks like Rudolph took a number two on the hub world. Moving on — players will be able to grab some exclusive cosmetic items during the festivities that’ll be based on the new year and holidays. The Splatfest starts on January 4 and will end on January 6.

In other Splatoon 2 news, Nintendo announced that the final content update for Splatoon 2 will be coming on December 5, just a few days away. Don’t worry too much though, the Inklings will keep their momentum going as newcomers in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Splatoon 2 launched exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on July 21, 2017. It’s personally one of my favorite titles on the handheld-console hybrid.
