Choose your side.
It's been a glorious ride, but all good things must come to an end. Nintendo has announced that the next Splatfest will in fact be the last one for the game, presumably until we get an NX-based sequel, which is pretty much a given. The game sold like crazy worldwide. And for the final Splatfest, they saved the hardest choice for last.
The choice this time around is between the two Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie. The sisters have been the erstwhile commentators and mascots for all things 'Splatoon' all this time, and now we must splat for their love and appreciation. This is the kind of thing that destroys families and friendships.
Anyway, the voting period for Callie v Marie: Squid of Justice kicks off July 4th at 7pm Pacific/10pm Eastern, with the actual Splatfest happening Friday, July 22nd until the wee hours of the morning, Sunday the 24th. If you've never borne witness to the creative silliness in the Mii community, or the graphically impressive redesign of the game's lobby, this would be your last chance. Treasure these moments.
