It appears that there are now two ways to enter Splatfest Battles: Solo & Team. Solo mode works like Splatfest in the original Splatoon game; you’ll automatically match with three other players and battle against groups of four random players from the opposing team.

Team mode requires four players (must be friends with someone from the same team who is in the Lobby) to join a private lobby before being matched up against another team of four.

The final result will be determined by popularity, Solo Win percentage, and Team Win percentage.

Let's see how this changes up the results.

Is that…Annie? It seems like she’s taken up a new digital storefront. You can order gear here, and then visit Murch to pick it up. He accepts cash on delivery! It looks like the gear available in the SplatNet Gear Shop can have a different main ability attached than those purchased at the Galleria in Inkopolis.

This is a special Gear Ability that can only be attained on a Splatfest Tee. It doubles the effect of other abilities.

The Dapple Dualies are dualie-type weapons that have been engineered for optimum mobility. They’re lighter than standard Splat Dualies, allowing for faster movement, but they have less range. It’s a trade-off. Utilize the increased mobility to set Squid Beakons around the map, and call your teammates to the front lines! And use the Suction-Bomb Launcher to further expand your team’s territory. Sheldon recommends this set for players who want to swiftly splat their opponents and support their team.

You know how blasters tend to have a low rate of fire? Not the Clash Blaster! Its speedy shots are great for keeping foes at bay! Damage output has been decreased to allow improved rapid fire, but Splat Bombs can help you take it to your foes in a major way. Opponents keeping their distance? Reach out and boop ‘em with the Sting Ray! This set is for players that like causing chaos on the front lines.

Baller! Yes, this is a new special weapon called the Baller! Roll around the stage in an oversized hamster ball that protects you from a certain amount of damage. If you hold down ZR, the ball will fill with ink, eventually causing an explosion on the spot.

Now this right here is Flow. You’ll find her working at Headspace, Inkopolis’s spot for hats and helmets. From the way she talks, she might seem a bit loopy, but that’s just part of her mysterious vibe. Word has it she’s a bit older than most of her Inkling customers, and teasing them is one of her favorite pastimes. The little guy who lives among her tendrils is her erstwhile companion, Craymond, an unhinged emperor shrimp who’s always got her back.

These lovely ladies are the rising stars who’ve been burning up the Inkling music charts, Off the Hook! First you’ve got Pearl, the cute and sassy MC with a talent for spitting fire lyrics.Then you’ve got Marina, the dazzling DJ genius rocking beats on the wheels of steel. Fans love them for their unique, futuristic sound, but they’re also making quite the name for themselves as the new broadcasters of Inkopolis News!

We’re proud to reveal our findings on the Goo Tuber, a charger with the upgraded ability to store your charge even longer. Intel from Sheldon is that it offers high-pressure ink storage for extended periods, allowing you to stay submerged while you wait for the perfect shot! In exchange, it takes a bit longer to charge, but you can push your foes back with the Suction Bombs sub. You can stay on the move with one in the chamber, and when the enemy decides to close in, make ‘em pay with a Splashdown surprise!

Hey, it’s Bisk the spider crab! He’s also the proud proprietor of Inkopolis Square’s premier shoe shop, Shella Fresh. His many long limbs welcome customers one and all, and he exudes the type of laid-back cool you just can’t teach.

This Jellyfish gentleman goes by the name Jelfonzo, and he runs Ye Olde Cloth Shoppe. And check out his origin story: one day he just split off of Jelonzo in Inkopolis Plaza, and there he was! I think that makes him Jelonzo’s son? He apparently learned to speak Inkling from an ancient text of some sort, so his speech sounds a bit outdated (to say the least). But don’t let that fool you. When it comes to fashion, this dapper dude is always up on the hottest trends.

New weapons are in development. Say hello to the Brella! Much like an Umbrella, it offers both beauty and functionality. Press and hold the ZR button to open it up and block enemy attacks. If you continue to hold down the button…you can even launch it forward! Of course, once launched, you won’t be able to open it for a while, so use it wisely.

It appears this weapon type will be ready for Turf War battles in an update after the game launches.

Pearl: Noooooooooooo!

Marina: I scream! AHHHHHHHHH! Well, I guess that settles it. Ice cream is officially better than cake.

Pearl: Well, I don't know if it's "officially" better...

Marina: Actually, according to chapter 3, paragraph 5 of the Splatfest rules, it is. Ice Cream is now legally better than cake. It's the law, Pearl.

Pearl: *Rasberries*

Marina: Way to keep cool, Team Cream. I hope everyone had fun!

I made the difficult decision of choosing cake over I've cream, even though that meant siding with the forehead Pearl. I lost with dignity. 

I was cake as well, and got reminded why I'm passing on splatoon 2... for now at least

Most of the Voters on Team Cake were really good and managed to defeat me and my team in matches during both 2 hour blocks. Even in my last match we lost against Team Cake and cost me getting to the Ice Cream King Splatfest Rank.

Also, technically although Marina & Ice Cream Won the first English Splatfest, Pearl and Rock Music won the Japanese Splatfest.

It's not. It comes out on Friday. 

Huh, then I guess the video description made a mistake by saying it's out now.

Salmon Run is a mysterious part-time job that Grizzco Industries offers when hordes of Salmonids approach Inkling waters. We’ve received word that for the first three days after the launch of Splatoon 2 on Friday, July 21st, a MASSIVE number of Salmonids will be migrating toward Inkopolis. This means that the frequency of Grizzco’s part-time job offers will be increased. But keep in mind that you need to be at least at level 4 to take part in these part-time jobs. Don’t miss this chance to try out Salmon Run!

Ugggh, I wish the US had gotten the Splatoon 2/Switch bundle. Would have been the perfect way for me to begin my Switch collection. Guess I'll just have to buy 'em separately like some kinda caveman.

SOME KINDA CAVEMAN.

Like I get why they haven't done it- why give away a game when people are buying the console as fast as you cna make it already but HOT DAMN if I wouldn't have loved to get Splatoon 2 and the Pink/Green joycons. 

 

Anyway, this game is really good! I've been mainly messing around with the Splattershot and the Dualies while I get the hang of playing and I'm having a lot of fun. It's SO satisfying when you splat people due to the awesome taktaktak POP! sound effect/visual design and the core gameplay of hiding and ambushing is still solid as can be.

It's interesting seeing how the returning maps have changed. The extra routes on Moray Towers make it feel a lot different for example as you can kinda sneak into the other team's side more without having to fight so hard through the middle. 

I will probably post my squiddie when I get some clothes I like. The hairstyles this time around almost had me playing a boy (big deal for me tbh) but I ended up picking the girl again because she's cuter. It's amusing to see people with names like "BIG DAVEY BOY" playing as the cute bob squid girl tho
