Clean sweep victory in Splatoon 2’s final Splatfest of 2017

Festive sweaters conquer all

You know what I got for Christmas last year? Try nothing. You know what I’m getting for Christmas this year? You got it. Yet here they are, the good folk of the Splatoon community, bitchin’ about sweaters and socks. I’d kill for sweaters and socks. In fact, I have numerous times…

This weekend saw the U.S. fight it out in the final Splatfest of 2017. Completely dropping the ball on doing the obvious “Naughty vs Nice” topic, Nintendo’s arena-shooter asked its fans which was the best-worst gift you could find under your Christmas tree: Sweaters or Socks.

In a straight 3 – 0 victory, Pearl’s Team Sweater took not only the public vote, but also Team and Solo play, rounding off a year of success for the Queen of the World. To be fair, this outcome was pretty obvious, as Christmas sweaters are all the ironic-hipster rage right now, and have been for a few years.

Either way, this brings 2017’s round of Splatfests to an end. We’ve fought over fictional media, super-powers, McDonald’s sides, winter-wear, lemons, toilet-roll and many other fine, first-world problems. May it continue long into 2018, as Pearl’s reign of adorable terror continues.

Splatoon 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
