Splatoon 3 Legend of Zelda splatfest sees the Triforce of Power flourish

Who needs Wisdom when you got POWAH?

The ink is dry on the latest splatfest, which was held this weekend on Nintendo’s messy arena shooter, Splatoon 3 — In keeping with this week’s festivities, Squid Kids and Octolings battled it out over 48 hours of gooey ‘n’ grueling mayhem to ascertain which glorious segment of The Legend of Zelda‘s iconic Triforce was the community’s favorite.

And, in a hard-fought and quite narrow victory, it seems that the Splatoon community craves Power over all, as Shiver’s Team Power segment bagged a clear victory over Frye’s Team Wisdom, (there’s an oxymoron), and Big Man’s Team Courage. Power took the points in each and every category — including Sneak Peek, Public Vote, Open Play, Pro Play, and Tricolor — though it should be noted that Wisdom and Courage both held their own in each category. It was a close call, despite Power’s clean sweep.

This splatfest was, of course, held in order to promote the release of Nintendo’s biggest game of 2023, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which launches later this week exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Splatoon has been used by Nintendo in the past to smartly cross-promote its other releases, such as Pokemon and Super Mario, and has, from time to time, teamed with other brands for special sponsored splatfests.

This latest victory continues to push Splatoon 3 host Shiver’s lead, as she claims her fourth victory of seven total splatfests to date.

Splatoon 3 is available now on Nintendo Switch. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launches May 12 on Nintendo Switch.
