Nintendo has announced the topic of debate that will be leading Octolings and Squid Kids into the March 2023 splatfest — And this time around it’s a question of myths and legends, as hosts Shiver, Frye, and Big Man want to know whether you believe in Nessie, Aliens, or Bigfoot.

Believing in more than one is, apparently, not an option. So get off the fence and commit.

On the weekend of March 31, players will be tasked with picking their monster of choice, before rallying forth into battle against their fellow Splatoon fans. For the purposes of this particular tourney, Shiver will be repping Nessie, Frye will be Team Aliens, while Big Man, as his name would denote, is all about Bigfoot. As per usual, a public vote will be held in Inkopolis, while match points will be tallied from Pro, Open, Tricolor, and Sneak Peek, with the ultimate winner revealed on Sunday, April 2.

So, who have you got? I know aliens exist because I’ve seen Marvin the Martian, and I know Bigfoot exists because he lived with The Hendersons. Additionally, I know that not just one Nessie, but an entire family of Nessies exist. I’m not sure who to roll with, so I guess I’ll stick with my main girl Frye, and thus I’m fighting for the Xenomorphs, for E.T. for Xtro, and for the Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

The March 2023 Splatoon 3 splatfest kicks off on Friday, March 31 and will run until Sunday, April 2.

*This is a reference for me and me alone, don’t sweat it.
