After a short delay, Splatoon's fabled Splatfest event is arriving in the West this weekend beginning on the 4th July. If you're in North America the theme is Cats vs. Dogs, and if you're in Europe the choices are more musically orientated: Rock vs. Pop.

We'll be taking part alongside our chosen teammates, but just in case you're not sure how to begin waving your flag of choice we've produced this short video that explains everything you'll need to know on how to sign up and get started ahead of the event.

Have you got an inkling which side you'll be splatting for? Lets us know by leaving a comment down below, and make sure you subscribe to the Nintendo Life YouTube channel to keep up to speed with all the daily videos.
