Japan's Splatfests in Splatoon 2 have been sponsored nonsense for basically the whole time they've been doing these, so they're used to Splatfests being dumb and immersion-breaking. Europe and the Americas less so, not since the bad days of the SpongeBob SquarePants Splatfest in the first Splatoon.
However, we're returning to those days. Not just returning. Not just doubling down. But we're tripling down on them: In the next three weekends, we'll have THREE Splatfests in a row: a tournament style series featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Round 1, for Saturday May 5th, features Raphael vs. Leonardo. Round 2, for the next Saturday (May 12) features Michelangelo vs. Donatello, though I don't know if that's the order that Off the Hook will support them in. Round 3, for May 19, will conclude the Splatfest tournament by having the winner of Round 1 and Round 2 face off. You'll need to go collect your Super Sea Snails on, like, Sunday. Quick, now.

Wait... before I tell you my choice... what the hell happened to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in those pictures?!
