Splatournament is Coming Up — Updated

We now have a start-time for the Splatournament:

Nintendo of America is reminding fans to check out the coming Splatoon event with the great people from the Nintendo Treehouse. The event, named the Splatounament, will take place on this Wednesday, December 2.

For more details on the Splatournament, take a look at the below clip from the recent Nintendo Direct:

Will you be watching the Splatournament on Wednesday, December 2? Stay tuned for exact time.

It’s always good to see the guys and girls from the Treehouse in action, so this should be no different. I am definitely looking forward to this latest iteration in the Treehouse Live events.

Are you a fan of the Treehouse events, as well? How do you expect this tournament to go, and are you looking forward to participating in some Splatoon tournaments of your own?

The Newest Splatfest is Heading to North America

Nintendo of America has announced the next Splatfest for Splatoon, and it is slated for Saturday, December 5 from midnight to midnight EDT (Friday, December 4, 9pm PDT). The theme this time around is Burgers vs Pizza. It has been several weeks since the last Splatfest was held. The last time the massive Turf War competition was held will have been more than a month ago when this event kicks off.

The Splatfest frequency has slowed a bit from previous events, but it is exciting to see its return next weekend as more and more people are joining the ranks with new customer purchases.

Burgers vs Pizza Splatfest GearBe sure to choose your team, and practice up to be ready for the Splatfest to represent your chosen side. Which side will you choose? Have your participated in any/all of the previous Splatfest events? How have you done in those? Will you be using any of the newer weapons or simply stick with older reliable ones?

Xenoblade Chronicles X: Survival Guide Episode 4

Nintendo of America has released the newest Survival Guide which is episode 4 of the five episode series. Initially, this series was released in Japan prior to the game’s launch in that region, and now we are getting them locally.

Over the past several weeks, Nintendo of America has shared Episodes 1 | 2 | 3 and they have all been very informative! Now with this newest iteration, we are getting even more.

This episode focuses on Frontiernav, Segment View, Frontiernav View, FN Site Info, Map View, and Arms Manufacturers. The lead-up to this game is starting to really get exciting, if it wasn’t already, and as Black Friday is starting to see more and more Wii U units flying off store shelves, December 4 should prove to be a highly appealing day for Wii U fans in general, and RPG fans, specifically.

Take a look at the latest video below, subtitled Mining Your Own Business.

Are you as excited, or more excited about Xenoblade Chronicles X‘s launch now that it is so close? Has this been one of (if not your most) anticipated release this year? Will you be picking this up right away, or waiting until later?

And Yet Another One Again…

Nintendo has made the announcement of the arrival of another new weapon coming to Splatoon tonight! Another two-weapon week, and this time the new weapon is the new Sloshing Machine!

This new weapon has a very appealing look to it as you can see below:

It’s pretty exciting to see so many additions to this game as Nintendo promised at launch. As many people pointed out leading up to the release of Splatoon, quite a bit of this content could have possibly been available immediately, but since launch Nintendo has added something absolutely NEW every single week, and they continue to do so. As usual they have far exceeded any reasonable expectations, and delivered tremendously.

Will you be testing out this new weapon tonight? Have you been enjoying the “Splatoon effect” that Nintendo is creating? Have you been playing Splatoon this Holiday weekend, already…and will this make you play even more?

Here We Go Again…

Nintendo has announced yet another new weapon is heading to Splatoon tonight. Last week, we saw the arrival of two new weapons, one on Tuesday night and the other on Friday night.

Well, this week, Tuesday comes bearing gifts again, and this time in the form of the Slosher Deco. It will be making its way to the gamers tonight at the usual 9pm EDT/6pm PDT.

These steady updates have not slowed down at all, and in fact, their frequency seems to be at almost a level of spoiling the fans. During the Direct, Nintendo did share that these updates would continue through at least January, but when they do finally cease, will we know how to act?

Do you enjoy the continual updates coming to Splatoon? Have you taken advantage of the recent additions and updates? Will you be taking the new weapon for a spin later this evening, as well?

Another New Weapon This Week

Nintendo has announced the arrival of a second new weapon coming to Splatoon later this evening. Earlier in the week we got the new Bamboozler 14 Mk II, and now we will be getting the new Hydra Splatling.

As per usual, the new weapon will be available in-game tonight at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT.

Will you be taking the new Hydra Splatling for a spin tonight in Splatoon? Have you been playing a lot of the game already this week? Do you anticipate this new weapon to be a new main weapon for you?
