Update #2 [Mon 9th Jan, 2023 09:30 GMT]: The results are in, and Team Sweet has won this past weekend's Splatfest!

It was a tight contest between all three teams, with Sour taking 12 points and Spicy taking 15, but all of you sweet tooths are revelling in victory will 30 points to win the "What's your favourite taste sensation?" Splatfest. That means Frye has got a victory at last!

In terms of our votes, the winning team also matches the most-voted team, with Sweet taking 50% of your votes.

We'll be back with another Splatfest soon, we're sure! Until then, stay fresh!

Update [Fri 6th Jan, 2023 10:30 GMT] Here we go! Splatoon 3's next Splatfest kicks off this weekend — or today, depending on which part of the world you live in!

Make sure you vote in our poll below to let us know "What's your favourite taste sensation?", which will determine what team you're playing for.

Here are all of the times below, but we've also got a more detailed rundown of Splatfests in our own guide.

  • Europe: 7th January (1am BST/2pm CEST) to 9th January (1am BST / 2am CEST)
  • North America/Australia/New Zealand: 6th January (4pm PST) / 7th January (10am AEST / 1pm NZST) to 8th January (5pm PST) / 9th January (10am AEST / 12pm NZST)
  • Japan - 7th January (9am JST) to 9th January (9am JST)

Don't forget, this is the first Splatfest where — once you hit the Halftime Report — you can select Tricolor Turf War yourself, rather than pray that it'll be picked for you at random!

For more details on the Splatfest, including our own poll, read on below...

Original article [Fri 16th Dec, 2022 09:45 GMT[: Nintendo has officially begun the countdown to the next Splatoon 3 Splatfest and this is going to be a tasty one. Moving on from the last Pokémon-themed take on the format (and in no way related to that horrifying eating Pokémon trend) the next event asks the question, "What's your favourite taste sensation?" with the team choices falling between Spicy, Sweet and Sour.

Kicking off on 7th January, 2023 and running through until the early hours of the 9th, the taste bud Turf War feels like it has been a long time coming. After all, it has been over a month now since we were all representing Team Fire-, Water- or Grass-Type in the last inky dual.

While we don't know exactly when voting will open for this one just yet, we are guessing that the event will follow suit with the Splatfests of the past and bring the voting booth to Splatsville around a week prior to the event's beginning (potentially around 30th December, 2022 by our calculations).

As soon as anything related to the tournament is released, we will have you covered with our Splatfest guide, where you can find all of the details of this event and those gone by as well as all previous winners. Check it out below:

Will you be picking Team Spicy, Sweet or Sour? Fill out the following poll and then take to the comments to let us know!
