With how often I still play Splatoon 2 I hadn’t realized it’s already been out for almost a year now. The ink-splashed sequel has been a Switch mainstay since July 21st last year, with all the new maps, weapons, modes, and more letting the undersea good times roll. After the double play that was the Splatoon 2 World Championship and Octo Expansion release last month, the game’s looking forward to its anniversary with an extra special Splatfest.
 


 
That’s right, it’s the match up that’s been playing out across the series’ history and single players modes – Squid versus Octopus! Six legs or eight? Arrow shaped or round? Delicious or…well, they’re both pretty dang tasty. You can make that choice yourself starting July 6th, but for anyone who hasn’t picked up the Octo DLC yet you might have another reason to make your choice.
 


 
It’s not just your shirt that’s changing either; you’ll actually be playing as an Inkling or Octoling based on your decision. If you want to check out that experimental style otherwise only available to those who’ve ridden the Undersea Metro, there’s your choice right there.
