It’s the battle of the cephalopods in Splatoon 2 as it pits squids against octopi for its birthday bash

It’s almost been a year since Nintendo released Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch. The frequent Splatfests – casual tournaments that decide winners by popularity, singleplayer performance, and team-based performance – have seen interesting tweaks of late, like a longer-form, team-elimination format that eliminates a voting option while letting everyone continue playing. North America and Europe experienced this with a Ninja Turtles-themed event.

However, for its one-year anniversary on July 21st, the game will be hosting an event partially based on its new DLC: Squids vs. Octopi. Much like the small change to ink color, t-shirts, and other tweaks Nintendo’s done for other Splatfest, this one also comes with a twist: While DLC players have access to the octolings (octo-kids) once they complete the rather challenging new storyline (or allow one of the characters to “hack” any level you’re stuck on), the new Splatfest will let any player who chooses Team Octopus play as an octoling for the duration of the event. As you might have guessed, Team Squid is stuck as the default but more varied inklings. While the choice may be tough, we’ve included a Very Serious discussion between the differences between squid and octopus advantages, care of Zoo Tier.

The Octo Expansion has really endeared me to my octoling, so I’ll be going octopus to stick with that character.

I just moved, and I’m also trying to get my internet situation under control before this splatfest happens. The wifi here can be a bit unreliable which has unhappily led me to more than a few disconnects in matches, but I think a range booster or mobile hotspot will do for the short amount of time I plan to stay where I currently am.

I once took a hit of 50mg vape juice in my nose to clear my sinuses. About sums it up.
