Splatoon 3 will be welcoming 2023 in its usually divisive style, splitting its player base into separate camps to fight for their right for culinary respect. Yes, the first Splatfest of 2023 has been announced.
The issue on the table this time? Your preference for spicy, sweet, or sour foods. Described as a taste bud turf war, the 2023 Splatoon 3 Splatfest is due to kick off at 4pm PT on January 06 and runs through to January 9.
