The first round of Splatoon's TMNT splatfest starts this weekend

Raph vs. Leo

This weekend, U.S. and European players will fight it out in the first ever multi-round splatfest of Nintendo's arena-shooter Splatoon 2. This three-week battle royale is an effort to determine who is the greatest Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle.

Round one will see TMNT's hot-headed warrior Raphael, represented in the fun art above by Pearl, take on long-time team leader, the cool-headed Leonardo, who is backed by Off the Hook's plate-spinner Marina. The splatfest begins this evening in North America at 21:00 PT until the same time tomorrow. In Europe, it's shell-time from 15:00 CET until the same time on Sunday.

Next week will pit mechanics-wiz Donatello against party dude Michelangelo, with the winner going on to face this week's winner in the Grand Final the following week. I'm not a betting man, but if I were, I'd be putting all my bottle-caps on Raphael to take the whole thing.

Splatoon 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
