Since its release in May 2015, Splatoon has been a notable success for the Wii U. While the platform has struggled, those that do own the system have embraced Nintendo's colourful third-person shooter in a big way. The cultural impact - especially in Japan - has been significant, with amiibo, merchandise and even live concerts making a splash.

The title's also been notable for its frequent content updates and Splatfest events, with a few that have been rather neat and high-profile collaborations - such as Transformers and SpongeBob Squarepants. The past couple of weeks have served as a final hurrah with new amiibo and a final Splatfest.

That final Splatfest was between Team Marie and Team Callie, and Marie has won the day.

It's the end of an era, somewhat, though we suspect plenty will be playing the game online for some time yet.
