Splatoon 2 Celebrates Third Birthday By Revealing Three New Splatfests

Help answer one of the biggest questions of all time in Splatoon 2 next month.

It goes without saying that Splatoon 2 has been a massive hit on Nintendo Switch. The game has sold over 10 million copies worldwide and sits comfortably within the top 10 best-selling games on the console. Nintendo has now celebrated the games three year anniversary on Twitter, sharing some brand new artwork and announcing plans for some new upcoming Splatfests.

The tweet, which thanks players for playing and supporting the game, showcases some new art featuring four of the game’s characters and has the message “Stay Fresh! Summer 2020!” The initial message is then followed up by two further tweets announcing the upcoming Splatfests.

Despite trying to retire Splatfests multiple times now, including the first attempt that was almost exactly one year ago, Nintendo has said there will be at least three more. The first of the three is confirmed to be coming at 3PM on 8/21 and will last for 48 hours. The tweet states

We’re getting into the anniversary spirit & taking another crack at a classic #Splatfest question! It’s your second chance to answer the conundrum of which came first, the Chicken or the Egg?

The answer is Egg, just to be clear.

This tweet was then followed up by another one stating that there will be a further two bonus Splatoon 2 Splatfests between now and the end of March next year.

Splatoon is a game that has now transcended multiple Nintendo franchises, including Super Smash Bros. and Tetris 99; it’s great to see it performing so well. Congratulations on the anniversary Nintendo!

As you can imagine, the game is available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch; if you haven’t picked up the game, you can grab up a digital code on Amazon to help support DualShockers and participate in the event.
