Japan is going all-out for Splatoon 3’s upcoming Pokemon Splatfest (Update)

Pokemon Splatfest

There’s My Nintendo Splatoon 3 Pokemon rewards involved

A Pokemon Splatfest is imminent, but until then, Japan is going all-out with their celebrations for the milestone event: which includes swag, and Pokemon center participation (as well as a few other locations listed below).

First up, Nintendo is offering keychains for Platinum Points (for My Nintendo Japan), including SKUs for each of the Splatfest choices: grass, fire, and water. They actually resemble the patterns of the t-shirts that will appear in-game, which is a nice touch.

A “Collaboration Festival” is also underway at Pokemon Centers “nationwide” (again, in Japan), where you can pick up tie-in stickers (featuring the key art for the event). Curiously, some centers also have “polling stations,” which include “voting stickers” for each choice.

As a reminder, everything will kick off on November 11 at 4PM PT, through November 13 at that same time. The Pokemon Center tie-ins begin on October 21, and will run through November 13 (or, as Nintendo points out, as long as supplies last).

Here’s a list of the Japanese locations hosting Pokemon Splatfest events:

  • Bic Camera Sapporo (Hokkaido)
  • Bic Camera Yurakucho (Tokyo)
  • Yodobashi Camera Multimedia Akiba (Tokyo)
  • Bic Camera Lazona Kawasaki (Kanagawa)
  • Yodobashi Camera Multimedia Yokohama (Kanagawa)
  • Yodobashi Camera Multimedia Umeda (Osaka)
  • Yodobashi Camera Multimedia Hakata (Fukuoka)
  • “All Pokemon Center stores”

[Update: The US My Nintendo site has been updated, and confirms that the trio of keychains are “coming soon” to the US side.]

[Update #2: The Splatoon 3 keychain set is live on My Nintendo as of last night. It is indeed a set of all three, and sold out quickly. Hopefully they’ll restock it, but note that the listing is live, if you want to bookmark it/check in on it.]
