One more round…
And so it’s come to this. We’ve battled over toilet roll, movie genres, Aesop’s fables, clothing labels, chocolate cookies and even philosophies but, right now, the final Splatoon 2 splatfest is underway.
Currently ongoing in North America, Europe and Japan, players are taking part in The Splatocalypse, a 72-hour online battle which tasks the Switch shooter’s community to side with hosts Off the Hook for one final round. In a battle as old as time as itself, players must decide between Chaos and Order. Team Chaos is, naturally, being captained by Queen of the World Pearl, while her altogether more chilled friend Marina is heading up Team Order.
As is the style of the time, the battle will be decided by a public vote, followed by victories in both Normal and Pro mode. With the winner to be declared when the ink dries on July 21. Who will take the crown in this final battle? We won’t have to wait much longer to find out. I’ve reported on the fun-filled, good-natured warfare of Off the Hook for two years now… and I’m surprisingly touched by this end of an era event.
Whichever side you choose, good luck and enjoy the weekend, squid kids.
