Last week, it was announced that we're going to have another Splatfest. For the first time ever, the Splatfest will have all three regions competing simultaneously in the same Splatfest. So while Splatfests before were a way to have regional matchmaking in a game normally without it, this Splatfest will match people in America with those in Japan, like you'd normally get.
The Splatfest will start this Friday night and end Sunday morning. That's Friday the 13th to Sunday the 15th.
|It's another sponsored Splatfest, this time brought to you by Miitomo.|
Yeah, I was just writing a few weeks ago about how the sponsored SpongeBob SquarePants Splatfest bothered me, partly because it was sponsored. The simultaneous, yet different Splatfest in Japan was also sponsored. We had a sponsored Splatfest before the Splatfest before that, too. So, for the majority of the Splatfests this year, they're being sponsored by something instead of the whimsical (yet deep) innocent kind of fun activity.
But it's not just any sponsor. It's from another department at Nintendo, since it's presented by the mobile game Miitomo. I was pondering what the goal of Miitomo was and if Nintendo was meeting it, but the most obvious conclusion is to bring the hollow mobile user space to Nintendo hardware. So what the hell is happening here? Why are you trying to get your dedicated console guys to Miitomo? We're already at the desired destination!
Well, whatever. We have subject matter to discuss. Would I rather go to a FANCY PARTY or to a COSTUME PARTY?
And the truth of the matter?
Let's face it: The Inkling in the formal dress is a lot more cute than the Inkling wearing the hotdog costume. And she clearly doesn't have pants. Besides, hotdog outfit? Really? Team Hotdog already lost to Team Marshmallow back in Splatfest #3. Gross.
Meanwhile, Fancy Inkling Girl is basically waifu material, and being on Team Fancy Party means I get a shirt with her on it. I hope whoever the model is gets a ton of royalties from SquidForce, the manufacturer of the shirts.

He has the Classic Straw Boater and Octoling Boots.
Is the Formal Party Inkling being cuter the only reason why I'm supporting that team over Costume Party? Well... Let's be honest. I don't personally really go to parties, though KoopaTV is gonna have an office party tomorrow, the 12th, for our three-year anniversary. (Stick around for that, will ya?) That said, I would rather have girls in dresses than hotdogs or fursuits. (Or jeans, for that matter.) ...Guys can be in regular suits as opposed to furry ones.

You don't see that rascal mustachioed menace sporting a fancy suit. But he does go in a lot of costumes to commit terrorist attacks against Koopa Kingdom, be it a frog, cat, Tanooki, or the body of a deceased Goomba.
But the Koopas have a long tradition of

Note his use of gloves when handling the suit.
King Koopa looks great, doesn't he? He thinks so, too.

Yay! We're not in a one world government, so Europe has its own Splatfest dedicated to itself about travel.
The next Splatfest taking place in North America is also exclusive to North America, so let's talk about sleeping/activity habits.
