A new Splatfest? Well, that’s music to our ears!

19 March 2024

Tidings, fellow researchers! Recent Squid Research Lab findings indicated that a new Splatfest* is drumming in hot.

If you’re new to the Splatfests scene, it’s a festive time in the Splatoon 3 game where you can give your opinion on themes that spark great debate, then fight for your side. For this Splatfest, things are about to crescendo! The question is:

Which instrument would you play? Are you set with the rolling beat of drums? Do you fret-ernize with the guitar? Or do you enjoy Chopin it up on the keyboard?

You can start making music in this Splatfest Saturday, 23rd March at 11:00 a.m. AEDT to Monday, 25th March at 10:59 a.m. AEDT. You can pick your side in the game right now, but you’ll need to wait until the event time to battle it out.


Wrap your tentacles around the Expansion Pass!

Sling more ink in the Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass – Inkopolis & Side Order paid DLC**! From the return to Inkopolis Plaza to a new single-player campaign, you can enjoy a sea of ink-slinging action.

Side Order returns players to a VERY different Inkopolis Square, the central area from the Splatoon 2 game. With all the colour and citizens missing, you’ll have to battle your way through a new single-player campaign to find out what’s krilly going on.

Inkopolis Plaza (from the original Splatoon game) has changed a bit over the last few years, but Booyah Base still has it goin’ on. Meet the shopkeepers slingin’ fresh deals (Jelonzo, is that you, bud?!) and join super-popular duo the Squid Sisters during Splatfests*.

Phew! Splatoon 3 is sure serving up quite a bit of fun. If you’d like to purchase the game or the paid DLC, please visit the link below.

Stay sharp out there, squiddos!
