Nintendo and Hasbro join forces to let TRANSFORMERS fans take sides in Splatoon
Splatoon features themed events called Splatfests that let you pick a preference, such as AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, and then compete against the opposing side in online battles. A Splatfest celebration lasts for 48 hours, during which you head into battle and try to rack up wins for your side. While the Splatfest is ongoing, you get to wear a special T-shirt that shows which TRANSFORMERS team has your allegiance. The ink that each team shoots will also be customized to match the color scheme of the chosen side.
Once a Splatfest ends, the side with the most points will be awarded the most Super Sea Snails, items that will allow them to upgrade their gear in the game. The TRANSFORMERS-themed Splatfest event is scheduled to run starting at 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 28 through 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 29 and is open to all Wii U owners who have Splatoon and an Internet connection.
