Next month, you can battle it out in Splatoon 3 to decide whether spicy, sweet, or sour foods are best.
Splatoon 3’s next global Splatfest has been announced. This third official Splatfest will ask the question, “What’s your favorite flavor?” and you can play for Team Spicy, Team Sweet or Team Sour.
You have a few weeks to decide which team you want to join as voting will begin later this month on December 30. The real Splatfest will start a week later, starting on the evening of January 7 and will last all weekend until the evening of January 9.
As always, the time between voting and the start of the event allows you to earn Conches at a faster rate. After voting in the Square, you’ll receive a Conch Shell for each Catalog Tier reached during the voting period and the Splatfest event itself.
The number of Conches acquired will be one of the factors that determines the winner of Splatfest, so it is important to earn as many as possible. These shells can also be redeemed in the Shell-Out Machine lobby as a lottery for in-game rewards, such as locker decorations or titles.
This Splatfest follows the first Big Run event, which took place earlier this month, and the previous Splatfest event deciding which type of starter Pokemon is best, which took place in November.
It looks like Splatoon 3 is skipping the holiday-themed Splatfests that existed in Splatoon 3; there was no Splatoween in October and it looks like there will be no Frosty Fest this month.
Splatoon superfans might recall that a similar Splatfest theme took place exclusively in Europe in Splatoon 2 in 2018; players fought for either Team Salty or Team Sweet and determined that salty was the best flavor. Looks like Team Sweet fans in Europe finally have a chance to redeem themselves!
