I expected Pancakes to lose overall because I had a feeling Waffles played better but I was actually really surprised by the vote lol

Also this was the first time I ended up playing Splatoon using VC with randos ^^ Until now I've been too shy lol It turned out to be a lot of fun and I think communicating with everyone helped improve the game slightly even though VC isn't required as much with Splatoon as it is with other games ^^

As someone already pointed out in the replies at lot of people wouldn't have issues importing the magazine the codes for this gear come from. The issue is the codes are region locked which is unfair.

Been nearly 2 years so I doubt we'll see any exclusive gear anytime soon if ever.

Also, there was Valentines Day Artwork

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This greeting card arrived from one of our fellow researchers. It’s great to give chocolates to someone, but it’s also important to treat yourself sometimes. And there’s nothing like having your favorite food with friends, or bandmates, around!

A new special Splatfest based on the Octoling Amiibo Costumes is arriving soon!

tumblr_po0vmdEtZL1u3akyno1_1280.png

Quote

It’s a fantasy fracas in the latest Splatfest! This medieval showdown asks, which would you rather be, a knight or a wizard?

Charge into battle from 3/15, 9:00pm PT to 3/16, 9:00pm PT.

This Splatfest also has a fun feature – if you match your headgear and shoes with the ones from the Enchanted or Steel series, available through the Octoling Girl or Octoling Boy amiibo figures, the look of your Splatfest Tee will change to the clothes from each series during battles.

Please note the main gear ability of the clothes remains the same as the Splatfest Tee and is Ability Doubler.

As the old saying goes, April Ink Storms bring May flowers, and that means Spring Fest is right around the corner! This special event is using the power of pastels to turn Inkopolis Square into a colorful hot spot!

Battle it out in the 48-hour event from April 19th, 3:00pm PT to April 21st, 3:00pm PT.

The theme of Spring Fest is “which will win in a race, the hare or the tortoise?”

Along with this Splatfest, some spring-colored gear will be given out via the Squid Research Lab Report (Splatoon 2) News Channel on your Nintendo Switch system: Spring colored visors and colorful custom kicks with design supervision from Pearl and Marina!

Pearl: Team Hare wins by a hair!

Marina: ...

Pearl: Team Hare doesn't seem fair! Turtles need a clean pair! AYYYYY!

Marina: Classy, Pearl. So I guess in the new version of the fable, the hare ends up winning...

Pearl: Yup. It's time for a gritty reboot of the Tortoise and the Hare. THIS SUMMER...

Marina: Dear cod...

Pearl: The hare had just won the race. She was taking a victory lap, when suddenly...

Marina: Suddenly what?!

Pearl: Mysterious creatures emerge from the sea to threaten their peaceful village! So the tortoise and the hare join forces to rescue their kidnapped friends!

Marina: WHAT?! That's not a plot twist... it's a plot backside rodeo 1080!

Pearl: Yeah, I'm gonna option the movie rights, so I gotta go big to attract investors! Ooh! I need to start working on the soundtrack! You can do the cover art.

Marina: Maybe take it one step at a time, Pearl. Slow and steady wins... Oh.

Marina: Way to go, team. I'm proud of you. So are you going to go back in time and switch teams?

Pearl: Nah, I'm proud of Team Time Travel. And I'm not gonna give up on developing my Time Travel powers. I just need more practice. 

(Tries to use Time Travel powers) Ooh! I felt something! See! Look at the clock! It's a minute later!

Marina: ...

Pearl: (Tries to use Time Travel powers again)

Man, this one was brutal for Team Time Travel. Most of my matches ended up with my team getting cornered or completely destroyed. :(

I'm mostly surprised by the voting. With all the Time Travel posts I thought you'd won that one.

I expected you to win overall actually. Most of my matches were mirror which don't count and the matches I did have against Time Travel were pretty messy. A lot of really good players on your side and I got my ass handed to me in Pro.

@Shiroi Huh, that's surprising to hear. As a member of Team Time Travel, things were quite the opposite on my end.

Before the Splatfest, the majority of drawings/posts that showed up were supporting Team Teleportation. And once it came to the event proper, I'm almost certain that the majority of matches I was in were losses - or rather, curbstomps - for our team.

Alright, kids & Squids. We have the last 2 Splatfests coming up.

First off is the Unicorns VS Narwhals Splatfest.

tumblr_pslr6eITdV1u3akyno1_1280.jpg

Quote

The latest Splatfest is on the way! This time the question is “Which creature is more majestic”? The elegant Unicorn or the distinguished Narwhal? Make your choice and point your team towards victory from 6/14 9pm PT to 6/15 9pm PT!

Meanwhile, this was just announced after the results of the Splatoon 2 World Championships 2019

tumblr_inline_pssvnhjC6c1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

It’s been two years since the launch of Splatoon 2, and now the shadow of the Splatocalypse is coming! This final Splatfest asks “Which world would you choose? Chaos or Order?”

Will you fight for a world of chaos, with an ever-shifting blur of boundaries and borders, where the only path through the confusion is that which you carve out for yourself? Or will you battle for a world of order governed by an unwavering discipline, in which your path toward a promised future is straight and well-paved? The time has come and the choice is yours!

 
tumblr_inline_pssvp3rs9y1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

This Splatfest will be a 72 hour event running from 7/18 at 5am PT until 7/21 at 5am PT, wrapping up exactly two years from the game’s initial launch. Make sure not to miss this be all, end all “Splatocalypse” extravaganza!

tumblr_inline_pssvqmYEzA1t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

In addition, a new Shifty Station stage will be added for this Final Splatfest, and all 23 of the previous Splatfest-specific stages will be making a reappearance, too. The 23 previous stages will surface in a constantly…shifting rotation for the first 48 hours, with the new stage making its debut for the final 24 hour period. This is just the chance to relive all your favorite Splatfest battle memories!

tumblr_inline_pssvptFt1P1t4m0j9_1280.jpgtumblr_inline_pssvrbHDH21t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

We’ll also be releasing some special gear to go along with the Final Splatfest. Each side will see two pieces of unique headgear inspired by the themes of chaos and order, for a total of four! Look for an upcoming report from Squid Research Lab (Splatoon 2) Nintendo Switch News Channel in late June to find out how to grab this great gear!

tumblr_inline_pssvrwe6UV1t4m0j9_1280.jpgtumblr_inline_pssvry0gO61t4m0j9_1280.jpg

Quote

Following the Final Splatfest in late July, the Ver. 5.0.0. Update is planned for release. This update will add the “Turf War (Splatfest)” option to Private Battles, allowing you to battle it out on any of the 24 Shifty Station stages.

Playing in “Turf War (Splatfest)” will also cause all 23 of the normal stages to appear in all their nighttime Splatfest splendor! You’ll also be able to select team ink color combinations from all those used in previous Splatfests. Get together with your friends and host a private Splatfest-themed party of your very own!

Remember how the results of the Marie VS Callie Splatfest affected the Story Mode in Splatoon 2? I can see this being the same case for Splatoon 3.

I was saying quite a while ago that'd I'd love for all Shifty Stations to be added after the Splatfests were done! They're one of my favourite things about Splat2 and now I'll finally be able to pick the stages I missed before getting a Switch ^^ The inclusion of all the ink colours and night time versions of regular stages from Splatfest is cool too!

Kind of a shame all this is only available in private matches but that's not a big issue ^^

I'm just surprised that we're getting all of this for free. 24 stages I was more than prepared to pay for, for free. The Splatoon team is too good to us ^^

I'll most likely pick Team Order ^^ I'm with the people who think the impact of Order will be worse than Chaos lol

Love the Salmon skull (?) headgear ^^

As for this weeks Splatfest, here's Europe's.

My thoughts exactly lol

Pearl: Yeah... Nice one, Marina.

Marina: ... Uh, Pearl? You feeling OK?

Pearl: You ever feel like...something big is coming? It's almost like... the end is near.

Marina: Yeah, I feel it too... But whatever happens, we'll always have each other's backs. Right?

Pearl: Yeah...

Marina: ...

Ok, this wasn't as bad as last time. :)

...also, I'm afraid of what's going to happen after the Final Fest...

Marina: Yeah, all right, Pearl. Preeeetty sure you're older than me.

Pearl: Bah, you're no fun. Go browse furniture catalogs, or whatever you do for fun...

Marina: Aww, Pearlie, you're so grumpy! Did someone miss naptime?

Pearl: The team was KID, not TODDLER!

Marina: Shush now, dear. Adults are talking.

No real foreshadowing for the Final Splatfest over here, though. That's a shame.

I was a little disappointed about the lack of foreshadowing.

I was so sure I was on the losing team lol Did not have a good run despite winning a 10x match.

I'd say the Shifty Station from this fest is one of my favourites ^^

Wonder if the song for the final few hours of Final Fest will change to Fly Octo Fly or something ^^ In Splatoon Calamari Inkantation played for the final few ours of the Callie VS Marie Splatfest ^^

That would be pretty cool. It'd certainly make the most sense to use that track during the finale.

Additionally, with over 20 returning Shifty Stations in the rotation for the Final Splatfest, we’ve been given a look at the schedule for the Final Splatfest: Sets of the existing Shifty Stations from past Splatfests will appear in 2-hour rotations during the first 48 hours, and during the last 24 hours, the new Shifty Station for this Final Splatfest, MC.Princess Diaries, will appear. Mark your calimari-endars accordingly!
