HomeNewsGet Ready: Splatoon’s Next Splatfest Begins October 9th Alex Irish October 5, 2015 News North American Splatoon players won’t have to wait long for the next Splatfest event. The battle of cars vs. planes (for travel) kicks off on October 9th at 9 PM PT and ends the following day at 9 PM PT. The Squid Research Lab reasons that, “On one hand, you can stop whenever you want in a car but you also spend more time getting to your destination. Air travel can be a bit more stressful but you get free snacks!” The previous Splatfest in North America pitted art against science, of which ended in a close victory for art. More interesting was the Splatfest of Autobots vs. Decepticons of Hasboro’s Transformers from August, following the game’s massive August update which added private battles, a higher level cap, and more maps, weapons, and outfits. With a new Splatfest like cars vs. planes, there’s never been a better time to jump into Nintendo’s acclaimed shooter.
