Thanks to everyone who participated in the Splatfest! Be on the lookout for the upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series on Nickelodeon.


Raph, Leo, Mikey or Donnie - who is your favourite Hero in a Half Shell?

April 27th, 2018 – This May, Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch will host its first-ever tournament-style Splatfest to determine which brother from the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is the ultimate fan-favourite.


Featuring characters from Nickelodeon’s upcoming animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, fans will vote in three rounds to crown one Hero in a Half-Shell. Will it be Raph, Leo, Mikey or Donnie?

To participate, players won’t be asked to order a pizza, hop on a skateboard or save the city from an army of masked ninjas… they can start voting for their pick beginning on April 28th simply by visiting the in-game Inkopolis Square.

The first of three in-game Splatoon 2 Splatfest tournaments will pit Raph against Leo from 5th – 6th May, with the second from 12th – 13th May featuring Mikey vs. Donnie, and the final match between the winners of the first two showdowns takes place from 19th – 20th May.



The full schedule is below:

Round 1: Raph vs. Leo

5th May (Saturday) 2:00pm AEST – 6th May (Sunday) 2:00pm AEST


Round 2: Mikey vs. Donnie

12th May (Saturday) 2:00pm AEST – 13th May (Sunday) 2:00pm AEST



19th May (Saturday) 2:00pm AEST – 20th May (Sunday) 2:00pm AEST

Splatfests are recurring online competitions in Splatoon 2 that ask players to pick a side – in this case, their favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

Once players choose a team, they’ll receive an in-game T-shirt adorned with an image of their preferred Turtle for their Inkling character to wear as they compete in online multiplayer Turf War battles to see which side comes out on top.

In Turf Wars, players must claim territory by covering it in ink in heated four-on-four battles. The team that claims the most turf wins. You’ll need to use teamwork and switch tactically into squid form and back again to gain the edge.

At the end of the Splatfest, each team’s popularity and win rate is tallied up, and one team is crowned the victor. Depending on what Splatfest rank players achieve, they’ll receive Super Sea Snails, which can be exchanged to further customise their gear in the game.

Because of the new tournament format, players need to pick up their Super Sea Snails by the Tuesday evening following each round. Splatfests are open to all Nintendo Switch owners who have the Splatoon 2 game and an internet connection.

Nickelodeon’s new animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City.

The 2D-animated series debuts later this year on Nickelodeon. For more information about the show, visit
