Nintendo has announced that a special Frosty Fest Splatfest will soon take place in Splatoon 2, which will ask whether you would rather spend the holiday season with your friends or family.
The Frosty Fest will run for a 48-hour period from 2pm PT on Friday 4th to 2pm PT on Sunday 6th January 2019, with Pearl and Marina to reveal the results soon after it finishes.
“Noticing a little chill in the air? Getting darker a little sooner? That must mean it’s almost time for Frosty Fest!” the Squid Research Lab enthuses. “This special global in-game event will turn Inkopolis Square into a winter wonderland! Stages will also be winter themed, and Inklings and Octolings will get to use some very fancy glitter-filled ink!”
While Inkopolis Square will be covered in festive decorations, you will also have the chance to unlock free in-game gear.
Those that follow the Squid Research Lab Report (Splatoon 2) News Channel on Nintendo Switch News will receive an article in late December that will reward you with the New Year’s Glasses DX, Twisty Headband, Festive Party Cone and Eel-Cake Hat.
You will be able to use the voting terminal in Inkopolis Square this weekend to choose your side, an early chance to fill the ability slots in your Splatfest tee before it starts.
Splatoon 2 is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
