Hello Kitty vs Cinnamoroll

While North America and Europe fight it out over Splatoon 2's TMNT-themed splatfest tournament, Japan locks and loads for round one of their own character battle.

Today sees the start of a three-week tournament to ascertain the Splatoon community's favourite Sanrio character. Figurehead Hello Kitty is currently up against the adorable Cinnamoroll. As usual, A three-point system, based upon Public Poll, Solo and Team Play will decide the victor.

The winner will go through to the Grand Finals in two week's time, to face the winner of round two, which will see My Melody square up to Pompompurin for even more kawaii warfare. Nintendo have released a line of cool T-shirts to promote the tournament, although sadly they are only available on the Japanese Nintendo store.

The Hello Kitty vs Cinnamoroll splatfest is live in Japan right now, ending tomorrow at 15:00 JST.
