At the end of April Nintendo of America announced its Splatoon Mess Fest, a live event at Santa Monica Pier - California - to promote the upcoming Wii U shooter.

It was standard PR event fair, pulling in celebrities and the public to have some messy fun on a goo-filled assault course. Celebrities included Disney's Joey Bragg and James Marsden, who was in Anchorman 2 and is also known as "that guy that played Cyclops in the X-Men movies".

The usual batch of PR shots were sent out recently, and with the addition of a Nintendo Minute vlog we figured we'd share events with you. It's a tad bizarre, but everyone seemed to have a jolly time.
