After today’s Splatoon 2 Championships, Nintendo announced that the final Splatfest for the game will take place on July 18, 2019. It will be Team Chaos (Pearl) versus Team Order (Marina). This doesn’t mean the online for Splatoon 2 is coming to an end, just that there won’t be any more live Splatfests.
However, instead of wasting all the stages and effort that went into creating those, the upcoming Splatoon 2 5.0 update will allow players to match up privately on all of the previous Shifty Stages that were used in prior Splatfests. Turf War Splatfests will arrive in late July. All 24 Shifty Stages will be included. You’ll also be able to play the nighttime versions of these as well. Pretty cool!
Now, when’s our announcement for Splatoon 3?
