Ready for a wintry themed Splafest this holiday season? Whether you are or not, Nintendo has just announced the “Frosty Fest” global Splatfest. Yep, that’s right, I said GLOBAL! Your two choices this go around will be “Who do you get most excited to spend the holidays with: Family or Friends”. This really should be a no brainer but there are those out there that have their reasons.
Here is a little bit of info for ya:
Noticing a little chill in the air? Getting darker a little sooner? That must mean it’s almost time for Frosty Fest! This special global in-game event will turn Inkopolis Square into a winter wonderland! Stages will also be winter themed, and Inklings and Octolings will get to use some very fancy glitter-filled ink!
In keeping with the season, this Splatfest asks: Who do you get most excited to spend the holidays with, Friends or Family? Grab a coat and battle it out in the 48-hour event from January 4th, 2:00pm PT, to January 6th, 2:00pm PT.
Along with the Frosty Fest, special gear items will be distributed via the Squid Research Lab Report (Splatoon 2) News Channel on your Nintendo Switch system. Keep your eyes open for these free holiday gifts in late December, and check back regularly so you don’t miss them!
• New Year’s Glasses DX
• Twisty Headband
• Festive Party Cone
• Eel-Cake Hat
