Splatoon Gets Pokémon-Themed Splatfest

"Generation 1 fight!"

Next Saturday, or at least midnight EST on the 20th, Splatoon will be doing its second licensed Splatfest. This time, 90s kids get personal: Pokémon Red or Blue?


This Splatfest will happen worldwide, but like other Splatfests, it only groups players within their region. Japan is based on Pokémon Red and Green, which were the first two versions released there. Speaking of Japan, Pokémon Center stores in Japan will be stocking Splatfest-themed shirts with Charizard and Venusaur on them.
