Next Japanese Splatfest Announced

Nintendo has announced that Japan’s next Splatfest will take place next Saturday, August 22, beginning at 12 local time. Unlike some of the past Japanese Splatfests, the latest competition will not make players choose between two branded items, but instead between grasshoppers and ants.

As usual, Splatfest will last only 24 hours, ending on August 23. Nintendo of America has yet to announce its own competition for that weekend, but that could still be on the horizon. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the new Rainmaker Ranked Battle mode that launched last night – it’s pure chaos.
