Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda! Get ready for a special Splatfest collaboration

18 April 2023

Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda Collaboration Splatfest

Yes, it’s true—the next Splatfest* is going to be a Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda collaboration! Splatfests are limited time online events in Splatoon 3. The Splatsville and Inkopolis Plaza** hub areas get decorated in a fancy way, and players can choose to champion one of three causes.

The question tied to this one is quite legendary if we do say so ourselves: Which do you seek? Power, Wisdom, or Courage? Do you want remarkable levels of strength? Or would you rather embody divine knowledge? How about wielding an iron determination through the darkest of times? Some say that you need all three to achieve perfect balance, but that’s not an option this time!

After you make your choice, you’ll participate in Splatfest Battles during the event—the goal is to ink as much of the stage as you can without getting splatted too often.

At the end of the event, the winning side will be revealed, and in-game goodies will be handed out (with the winning side getting more, of course).

The Splatfest will take place: Saturday, 6th May at 10:00 a.m. AEST to Monday, 8th May at 10:00 a.m. AEST.

Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda Splatfest T-shirts are also available to pre-purchase on My Nintendo Store!

And finally, don’t forget, the latest game in the Legend of Zelda series—The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom—comes out on 12th May. You can pre-order the game now, and if you have a Nintendo Switch Game Voucher, you can redeem one to get it!

Happy gaming, all!
