Splatoon’s Callie vs. Marie Splatfest is for All the Marbles

After the amount of trash talking that took place between Callie and Marie, it has all culminated in this final showdown. It’s been an entire year since Splatfests first started in Splatoon and this epic finale pits Team Callie vs. Team Marie. It’s a Splatfest we always wanted to see but not like this! While the news is shocking, we hope for more events in the near future.

Usually players side with their favorite Squid Sister regardless of what the team may be. This time, there’s nothing to choose but your favorite! Fans of Callie will take on Marie’s loyal following from 2 AM PT on Friday, July 22, until 2 AM PT on Sunday, July 24. This is going to be a big deal but we hope the two show good sportsmanship.

Teams will be divided by region. All players in Japan will face others from their country. However, North Americans and Europeans will be teaming with and facing one another. The results of the Splatfest will be announced at the same time for all locations.

Also, more big news! For the first time ever, players will get to choose the stages they want for the competition. However, this will only be done via emails sent to those with Nintendo Network ID. Voting ends on July 12. Perhaps this a sign of things to come for the future of Splatoon.
