As if there isn’t enough cross-pollination within the Nintendo universe, Splatoon 2, who also has the Inklings featuring in the brawler, will play host to a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate themed Splatfest to celebrate their inclusion. With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate being one of the most anticipated releases for the Japanese console this year, it’s no surprise that we’ll see traces of it popping up in other titles.
NEW SPLATFEST APPROACHING! To celebrate Inklings joining Super #SmashBrosUltimate, we’re celebrating with a special #Splatoon2 #Splatfest! Which group of fighters will you side with? #TeamHeroes or #TeamVillains?
Join the Splatfest between good and bad starting 12/14 at 8:00pm! pic.twitter.com/Dxzu9dki7T

The Splatfest commences on 14 December 2018 and this time you’ll have to choose whether you’re on the side of Team Heroes or Team Villains. Team Heroes feature Link, Mario, Samus and Kirby while Team Villains have King. K Rool, Ridley, and Wario to name but a few. It would be great if you could get Nintendo franchise swag in Splatoon 2 as part of the Inklings inclusion in the latest brawler, would be fun splatting some foes wearing a Mario outfit.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is set for release tomorrow, 7 December 2018, and be sure to join us on Tuesday for the SA Gamer’s weekly Nintendo gathering.
