Japan's next splatfest is another product placement deal

Drone or Sheep, you decide!

Nintendo Japan has revealed the topic of the next splatfest to be held on Switch shooter Splatoon 2. As is sometimes the case with splatfests in the East, it features cross-promotion with a top retail brand.

The question this time around pertains to buying habits, asking whether, when it comes to your purchasing decisions, you're a fan of buying "What's New" or "What's Popular". Gross. Pearl is apparently all about blinding buying the latest thing to hit the high street, while Marina chooses to follows the crowd like a puppet.

Honestly, I think this is probably the worst splatfest topic to date. Neither answer, nor the topic itself, is particularly interesting. The splatfest is sponsored by legendary sportswear company Nike, and as such Team New will be wearing Air Max 270s while Team Popular will be wearing Air Max 95s.

The splatfest goes live in Japan March 24 from 15:00 JST until March 25 at the same time.
