The subject of Splatoon 3’s next Splatfest has been revealed by the Squid Research Team, and this time around it’s all about the freshest time of year, Spring! Dubbed the Spring Fest, this special event will ask players, “Which fuzzy fluffiness do you like most?” with the options being Baby Chicks, Li’l Bunnies, or Bear Cubs.


Small animals aren’t the only thing making this Splatfest positively spring-y, as the various idol groups of Splatoon 3 are going to be present and decked out in their freshest spring attire. In Splatsville, Deep Cut will be sporting their most colorful pastels as they perform, while in Inkopolis Plaza, Callie and Marie will be performing in sparkling spring colors. If you’ve beaten Splatoon 3’s latest expansion, Side Order, you’ll get to see Off the Hook bucking the trend of bright pastels over in Inkopolis Square, with Pearl and Marina rocking out in fresh new black and white outfits.



All the Inklings and Octolings of Splatoon 3 won’t be left out of the fun of fresh new outfits either, as brand new spring-themed glasses and shoes will be making their way to your collection through the Splatoon 3 news channel on Nintendo Switch. Opening Splatoon 3 through the special news post will grant players a whopping 13 new pieces of clothing: four styles of pinhole shades and nine new pairs of shoes. Players will also be granted a brand new spring-themed banner for their Splashtag. All of these goodies are available right now, so head to the Splatoon 3 news channel on your Nintendo Switch to claim them!



Splatoon 3’s Spring fest is happening just a short two weeks from now, taking place from 4/19 at 5 p.m. PT and will run until 4/21/24 at 5 p.m. PT, giving all you squidkids plenty of time to splat each other in the name of all things fluffy and fuzzy.
