Join the Splatoon 2: Splatfest World Premiere demo

Cake...or ice cream? Choose your side and fight to prove its delectable dominance in the Splatoon™ 2: Splatfest World Premiere demo event! Download the free demo and do battle for your team on Saturday, 7/15 from 3 p.m.—7 p.m. PT. Don't miss this sweet sneak-peek before the full Splatoon™ 2 game arrives on 7/21.

But let’s back up and tell you what a Splatfest is. During the event, you’ll be able to choose a side in the game (in this case, Team Cake or Team Ice Cream). When the event starts, every Turf War win you secure will help your cause out. At the end of the event, the winning side will be announced…ending the debate once and for all.

You'll need an Internet connection* to participate. To join, download the free Splatoon 2: Splatfest World Premiere demo here or from Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch™ system. Launch the demo any time to choose your side, submit fresh drawings in-game, and take in the scenic sights of Inkopolis Square. However, you’ll only be able to play during the event, so be sure to dive in on Saturday, 7/15 from 3 p.m.—7 p.m. PT.

The Splatfest will allow you to try four different main weapons, including the new Splat Dualies, the Tentatek Splattershot, and remixed versions of the iconic Splat Roller and Splat Charger.

And while you’re waiting for the Splatfest, you can learn more about Splatoon 2 on the official site.
