Splatoon 2 Frosty Fest – Fans of the Splatoon 2 game have plenty of reasons to start inkin’ online*. Frosty Fest will turn Inkopolis Square into a festive winter wonderland. Inklings and Octolings will even get to use some very fancy glitter-filled ink! In keeping with the season, this special Splatfest asks: Who do you get most excited to spend the holidays with: Friends or Family? Choose a side and battle it out from Jan. 4 at 2 p.m. PT to Jan. 6 at 2 p.m. PT. You can also get seasonal gear that will be distributed via the Splatoon 2News channel on your Nintendo Switch system.
