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.

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.
