The decorations might not be up yet, but it’s time to start getting in the holiday spirit for Inkopolis Square’s upcoming fright-filled makeover. Splatoween is coming to Splatoon 2 and you can already choose your side. Are you all about a spooky costume and the occasional bit of vandalism? Or do you just want to go to town and grab as many sweets as you can? Whichever side you fall on for this Trick or Treat Splatfest, you can also get in the spirit of things with a few free gifts.

Rather than just get them in-game, you’ll want to head to the Switch News channel on your console’s home screen. Once you’re on, find the latest post from the Squid Research Lab. It’s on the front page seeing as it’s a fairly new posting — make sure to claim it ASAP so you don’t miss out! You’ll also want to have your copy of the game either inserted or downloaded to the system when you grab your swag.

Once you do that, a box will appear in Inkopolis Square with four pieces of headwear: the Kyonshi Hat, Li’l Devil Horns, a Hockey Mask, and the Anglerfish Mask. All of them have three ability slots and come with some all around handy skills for their main slot, too.

Once you’re all dressed and signed up for Splatoween, all that’s left to do is practice and wait for it to begin on October 19th.
