North America Celebrates Independence Day With a Splatfest!

This July 4th the United States will be celebrating its 239th Independence Day! Most people will be spending quality time with friends and family eating  wonderful food, and watching vibrant fireworks displays, all while relaxing and simply having a good time. Many will also take the opportunity to watch movies, as a lot of great things have come to theaters near us all. Some will even find solace in the tried and true pass-time of playing video games, and in this we find North America’s very first Splatoon Splatfest which launched this morning at 12:00am PST!

Splatfest is an in-game event that is hosted by the game’s mainstay Pop Stars, the Squid Sisters. During this event, participants can choose between opposing teams and battle each other to determine which team will indeed become the winner.

Rank System

During Splatfest, players will be able to gain XP/Points that increase the players’ Rank. Super Sea Snails are awarded to participants upon Splatfest’s conclusion, with the winning team’s respective rank rewards doubling at the end of the Splatfest. Players receive 3 Rank EXP for winning a match, 1 EXP for a score over 200p, 2 EXP for a score over 400p.

Immediately after Splatfest kicked off in North America, the Miiverse response was excited and swift. Many players began to express their delight with the changes to the plaza and the amount of detail Nintendo put into their latest work. As it has been stated so often, Nintendo pays so much attention to the smallest of details, and Splatfest has indeed been no exception. Just take a look below at a few of the screenshots that were posted.
