Splatoon 2’s weird Euro splatfest begins tomorrow

Imagine having so little going on in your life as to setup this photo

This weekend sees the European Splatoon 2 community wage a messy war in their latest localised splatfest. During a holiday where our American friends gorge themselves upon all sorts of goodies, Europe’s squid kids will be food fightin’ too.

As we reported earlier in the week, this weekend’s (somewhat odd) topic concerns eating behaviours and the concept of “the best bit”. When you approach food such as an ice cream sundae, or a fine patisserie product, do you eat “the best bit” first, or save it as the final mouthful of the meal? Look, I’m just passing on the info.

Queen of the World Pearl is all about wolfing down the goodies, while her more cutesy buddy Marina is more likely to leave the cherry/strawberry/truffle to one side, a little treat to polish off a lovely dessert. The splatfest begins tomorrow, November 24 at 14:00 BST until the same time on November 25. Good luck!

Splatoon 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
