Earlier this week, a fairly substantial update for Splatoon went out, making numerous changes to several different aspects of the game. One of the things that was overhauled with this update was how Splatfests will be conducted; basically, 'Splatfest Power' will now more closely tie in with the rank of individual players on a team, and is more susceptible to wins and losses. Fortunately, Europeans will soon get a chance to see what this looks like in action, as the next Splatfest for the region has just been announced.
The news came via Nintendo of Europe's Twitter account, where it was revealed that the Splatfest will be between whether hoverboards or jetpacks are the superior form of travel. Naturally, this isn't quite as cool as the Pokémon Splatfest that happened a few weeks ago, but it will nonetheless be fascinating to see how it pans out, especially considering the new Splatfest rules. Here's the tweet:
What do you think? Which side will you take? What do you think of the changes made in the latest update? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
hoverboards pollute less because of the lack of exhaust. jetpacks burn the back of your legs all the way to the cheeks. marty mcfly versus the rocketeer. hrmmm...
Hoverboards will win.
Hoverboards are always the answer.
I have to agree, hoverboards are definitely the correct answer.
Who wouldn't choose hoverboards, honestly?
hover boards to bad this isn't the usa's one
Everyone saying hover boards is making me think jet pack might be the better option. The underdog team always seems to win overall.
Jetpack all the way, but I'm working anyway.
Jetpack! Michael Jackson, (well a double), took off on a jetpack at the end of his shows on the DANGEROUS World Tour, fantastic, so I'm going with #teamJETPACK
I see splatoon's plan here. Pokken is coming out so they know people will most likely spend their weekend on that. So make a splatfest to keep people playing.
Having said that, I choose hoverboard simply because I'm scared of heights
Jetpack. If you're going to use a hoverboard, you might as well walk
Jetpacks for me. You can travel very fast and high up in the sky with them. If I had a hoverboard, then I'd just fall off it all the time.
This is a very good theme idea. Hopefully the recent update also included updating their ability to come up with Splatfest ideas.
Definitely gonna be the Jetpack for me!
What's a splatfest?
Team "Pilotwings" all the way. Rocketbelt it is.
@MJKOP HaHa. Curse you. You just ruined that illusion for me. I always thought it was Michael.
Hoverboards for me. Because:
If I were in Europe I would choose Team Jetpack. I have to be honest with myself, I wouldn't have the balance for a hoverboard.
Jetpack, I can probably thank halo reach for that! Still it doesn't matter I won't be playing as pokken tournament will be out! Very excited for that so I probably won't take part in the splatfests!
At least Nintendo knows what a hoverboard is.
Hint to those that need one: doesn't have wheels.
Hover board. This is the one, true answer. Unless of course we're bringing water into this. They don't work on water (unless you've got POWAH!)
No word from the NoA twitter account yet, but North Americans booting up Splatoon are being greeted with their own Splatfest announcement- Snowman vs. Sandcastle.
I'm in NA but can't be bothered switching out TPHD right now...
@Sligeach sorry! No way insurance would have let him do that lol. I actually only put that in my comment to avoid someone replying, 'it's not actually him you know' lol
Hoverboards seem cooler though jet packs would allow for more freedom of movement.
It's a tricky one so I'll just go with whichever is Cali's team again
Jetpack for me anyday of the week. Don't have the balance for a hoverboard and would love to fly through the sky like Cliff Secord...
So, the board with the two wheels at the sides or the thing that sprays water to launch you up.
If these are Super Bowl I jetpacks then yes, other wise hoverboards all the way.
Hoverboards! I love Sonic Riders!
Jetpack for me. I'm in USA, so I can't participate. I'd rather fly high in the hair instead of hover near the ground.
@shaneoh Only if the "hoverboard" you're talking about are those stupid handleless segway things. Actual hoverboards don't have wheels.
Marty McFly FTW!
Jetpack, although technically a Wingpack would be better...
I'm talking about hoverboards in any form
What about the one for the US?
Jetpack because you aren't limited to existing paths since you can just fly over buildings so you'll get there faster. The view's also better from the air and you can enjoy it more because you won't have to worry about getting hit by cars.
What about Snowman vs Sandcastle? That's the NA one!
I'm going with jetpack because honestly, who wouldn't want a jetpack? Hoverboards are probably safer then a jetpack, but screw safety. JETPACK!
The first "computer game" I ever bought was Jetpack. Need i say more?
Come on team Jet Pack .
