Start the new year right by fighting for Spicy, Sweet, or Sour in Splatoon 3's next Splatfest

Delectable divisions.

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. 

The Spicy red team will fight under the banner of a chili pepper, the Sweet pink team get a delectable-looking strawberry cake, and the Sour yellow team get, you guessed it, a lemon.

You may be planning to shared plenty of meals over the holiday period, but be warned that your friends and family may soon become enemies on the ink-splattered battlefields. Which team are you on?
