Chicken or Egg, which came first? Splatoon players now have the answer

Winner, winner, Chicken dinner

Over the last couple of days, North American and European players battled it out on Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 to answer one of life’s oldest brainteasers, Which came first: The Chicken or The Egg. Now, we have a (scientifically-binding, I assume) answer.

Pearl’s Team Chicken took the 2 – 1 victory, defeating Marina’s Team Egg in both Solo and Team play. Interestingly enough, the public poll leaned heavily toward Egg, taking 59% of the vote. Things were different on the battlefield though, and Pearl now has another victory under her wing (WING! LIKE A CHICKEN!).

It should be noted that Chicken players got to use an all-new white ink, and never question the influence “something new” can have over a person’s philosophical beliefs. Regardless, congratulations to Pearl’s posse who this weekend — just like the chicken — came first.
