Update #2: The Splatfest results are in, and Team Sweet took first place this past weekend!
All of you sweet tooths are rejoicing in victory with 30 points to win the “What’s your favorite taste sensation?” tournament despite the close match between the three sides, with Sour taking 12 points and Spicy taking 15. Splatfest. That means Frye has finally achieved success!
With Sweet receiving 50% of your votes, the winning team is also the most popular team in terms of our votes.
We’re confident that we’ll return with another Splatfest shortly. Stay healthy up till then!

Original article:The countdown to the upcoming Splatoon 3 Splatfest has officially begun by Nintendo, and it’s going to be a tasty one. The next event asks, “What’s your favorite taste sensation?” with the team choices being Spicy, Sweet, and Sour. This is a departure from the previous Pokémon-themed version of the format (and in no way related to the horrific eating Pokémon habit).
The taste bud Turf War, which begins on January 7 and lasts until the wee hours of January 9, seems to have taken a very long time to arrive. Since we all competed for Team Fire-, Water-, or Grass-Type in the previous inky dual, it has been more than a month.

⚠ A new Splatfest approaches!

Although we are unsure of the precise time that voting will begin for this one, we believe that it will follow the example set by previous Splatfests and bring the voting booth to Splatsville about a week before the event starts (potentially around 30th December, 2022 by our calculations).
