Japan's next Splatoon splatfest wants you to wrap up warm


High fashion, low interest

Hot on the heels of the news Europe will be getting Films vs Books as its next Splatoon 2 splatfest topic, Nintendo Japan have announced that their next bout of ink-based warfare will be over... erm... designer Winter clothing.

Japanese Splatfests are no stranger to product placement. We've seen fights over McDonald's food before, and the original Splatoon featured a memorable Autobot/Decepticon battle. This latest face-off is a little less interesting, asking players which Winter clothing they prefer from fashion label Uniqlo.

Pearl is all about the undergarments, choosing Heattech thermal wear. Marina, more of a big jacket kind of gal, is in the corner of Ultra Light Down outerwear and I'm failing to make this sound exciting, I know.

This looks like the kind of clothing I see around the fighting game community, expensive Japanese labels, while I'm stood there in my sweet-ass £4 T-shirt and distressed jeans (actually distressed, not fashionably) But maybe this Splatfest will appeal more to you hip kids with your Supreme and your Bathing Ape. Fun fact: I got thrown out of the Harajuku BAPE store, but that's a story for another day.

The Uniqlo Splatfest is live from 15:00 JST on December 9 until 15:00 JST December 10.
