New Splatfest theme just announced, it's orange juice with pulp vs. orange juice without pulp. I instalocked no-pulp like any sensible person, then realized that this'll be the fifth Splatfest in a row I will have to miss. April's I had to spend out of town in a meeting regarding my trip to Germany, the TMNT series in May I missed due to being in Germany, and now next week I'm going to be out of town due to me visiting my grandmother for my birthday. :shepspike:

Oh well. I wonder what Europe and Japan are going to be getting now or shortly.
Can't you just take your Switch with you? :rariwhat:

I could, but there's no Wi-Fi and I know from past experience that my phone gets terrible data there.

Speaking of music, I was a bit disappointed to check the Squid Beatz 2 machine and find that the regular test chamber songs weren't available there. The songs from the end sequence are all great, don't get me wrong, but (the rest of) Dedf1sh's tunes were way cool too. Maybe the developers just didn't have time to compose button charts for all of them? (Considering that one particular Octo Expansion song has a whopping 666 notes to hit on hard, the developers certainly didn't skimp there...)

Wait until the Octoling amiibo come out next month, I have my suspicions that they've probably locked things behind those. (Which is a bit rude, asking you to buy both the DLC and the amiibo for those, but still)

Octo Expansion final boss minor spoilers:
I really love that after hearing a villain monologue about a society fuelled by petty squabbles, Agent 8 escapes the Deepsea Metro... into a week long argument about how you like your orange juice.

New Splatfest got announced, and since it's the first anniversary of Splatoon 2 being out...


It's the Second Great Turf War. I guess it figures they'd go for a huge one, seeing as at this time in the first game's Splatfest cycle we were fighting over Callie and Marie, but still I didn't think this'd happen so soon.

I expect Octopus to win the popular vote, but lose in battles.

Not that it really matters, Cuttlefish are the real winners.

Edit:

Also, this needs to be seen because it is 2me4meirl

New patch is out. Along with neat stuff like Tenta Missiles getting buffed and the Splattershot Jr. receiving a special 10% larger ink tank, the best change here is that exiting the Grizzco office now places you right outside the door, so you can collect your pay that much easier.

Here comes a very special Splatfest:


And to think, at this point I thought Nintendo was winding down with Splatoon stuff.

I mean they had a whole big trailer for new content in the last Direct, it doesn't seem like they're done with it just yet

Nintendo mentioned on Tumblr that this was going to be the last new map, and that they'd have a few more new weapons through December and a slate of Splatfests through July next year. I didn't expect something wild like a massive redecoration of Inkopolis that'll likely never be used again, considering when the Splatfests are currently set to end.

Of course, Nintendo could always decide to keep making more content after all. :pinkieshrug:

Maybe they realized how dumb it'd be to drop support for it right after it went pay to play? :v:

I'm mad about this Splatfest because how dare Nintendo lump King Dedede in with the villains.

i mean, antagonist is his default role and he's more of a villain than dark pit

Yeah, Dark Pit isn't even remotely evil. Shadow the Hedgehog is more of a villain than he is.

Nintendo is running a free demo period for Splatoon starting next week:


And, for any new players who pick it up during that time, they're re-running an old Splatfest a couple of weeks later.


Those maniacs who won it for Team Chaos last year have already started chipping away at the foundations of Splatfest Law, as you can see.

Finally, we on Team Ketchup have our revenge. I wanted to quote some posts we surely had from the first Splatfest, but then I realized it was so long ago that we were on the old forums at the time. :negative:

It seems the mayo vs. ketchup Splatfest rerun was a big enough hit that Nintendo is bringing chicken vs. egg back around a month from now, as well as two more classic Splatfests before March next year (so likely one per quarter if this pace keeps up).

A footnote in all of today's Mario news is that one of the two upcoming Splatfests got announced, with some very cool shirts to go with.


I sure wish they'd reprint the Chaos vs. Order shirts, though.

You did it. You maniacs who fought for Team Chaos, reap that which you sowed! Behold the Splatlands!
