Upcoming Splatoon Splatfest will Feature Transformers

In a very surprising announcement, Nintendo of America revealed today that another Splatfest is coming to Splatoon, this time with a surprising theme. Starting at 9 P.M. PST on August 28, the new Splatfest will make players choose between Team Autobot or Team Decepticon.

This crossover is pretty surprising, as Nintendo is usually not-so welcome to mixing their properties with existing ones.The Transformers are an interesting property for Nintendo to bring in to one of their games. Still, this is exciting news for Splatoon players, especially those who enjoy the tournament-style gameplay of the Splatfests.

Splatoon is currently available exclusively on the Wii U, and just crossed 1 million players.
