The Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere demo is now open! Rolling out to various regions where it’s Thursday, August 25th, the demo is getting players ready for what awaits in Splatoon 3.

Of course, when you’re gonna battle in 4 vs. 4 Turf Wars or Anarchy Battles, you have to be wearing the right gear (weapons too, which you can read up in our Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere: Weapons guide). For this special event, all Squids and Octos will get a kit of various gear – headgear, clothes, and shoes. It helps since a fresh rating (a.k.a. level up to Level 4, ya scrub) is needed to buy gear from Naut Couture, Man-o’-Wardrobe, and Crush Station! Since there’s no way to level up until Splatfest matches are in session, you’ll just have to make do with the following gear automatically added to your inventory:

During Splatfest, when you reach Level 4 then you can go visit Naut Couture, Man-o’-Wardrobe, and Crush Station. Provided you have enough gold in hand (er, tentacle?), you’ll have six different items to purchase. Item selection rotates at the start of a new day and is random and will vary by player/Nintendo Account.

No matter what this Splatfest’s outcome is, you won’t be able to take all the free and purchased gear into your save file for Splatoon 3. So for now, just have fun, and “Booyah!” your way to victory.
