Nintendo's hosting a brand new tournament for Splatoon 2 next month, giving talented players the chance to walk away with over $1,000 worth of prizes.
Open only to residents of the United States, the new tournament will be split over four weekends. Each weekend focuses on a particular game mode – Rainmaker, Splat Zones, Tower Control, and Turf War – and the top four teams from each mode's competition will receive a splattering of "off-the-hook" prizes.
Registration for the tournament is open right now over on Battlefy; the first event, Rainmaker, kicks off on 10th July:
- Rainmaker: 7/10/21
- Splat Zones: 7/17/21
- Tower Control: 7/24/21
- Turf War: 7/31/21
You can find all the terms and conditions on the registration page, but to summarise, you'll need to be a US resident aged 13 and up to compete, and you'll need your own Switch, online subscription, and game. Registration ends at 10am PT on the day of each event, and the full prize list can be found below:
- 16 Grand Prize winners will receive gaming chair, trophy, jacket, gaming headset, 10,000 My Nintendo Gold Points, backpack, pin set and lanyard (ARV $1,163.98 US each).
- 16 First Prize winners will receive 7,500 My Nintendo Gold Points, backpack, pin set and lanyard (ARV $140 US each).
- 32 Second Prize winners will receive 5,000 My Nintendo Gold Points, backpack, pin set and lanyard (ARV $115 US each).
- Total prize ARV $24,543.68 US.
