2019 may feel some ways away but it’ll sneak up on us pretty fast. Thankfully, Splatoon 2 will be there to give us some cozy familiarity as we enter the final year of the 2010’s, with a special themed event called Frosty Fest.

Not unlike this year’s Halloween event, which saw Inkopolis covered in spooky decorations and unique ink, Frosty Fest turns the game world into a classy winter wonderland, with sparkling glitter-filled ink, Pearl and Marina decked out in gold and white duds respectively, and a gorgeous tree, center stage.

It’s all in service to 2019’s first global Splatfest, which asks the question: “Who do you get most excited to spend the holidays with? Family, or Friends?”

The Splatfest will be a 48-hour event, lasting from from January 4th, 2:00 p.m. PT, to January 6th, 2:00 p.m. PT.

Ahead of that though you’ll want to keep an eye on the Switch’s Splatoon 2 News Channel, as the Squid Research Lab will be distributing some of the items below throughout late December.

It definitely seems like it’ll be a great way to kick off the new year!

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
