Nintendo has announced via the Nintendo Versus Twitter that a new Splatfest will be taking place on December 14th in the US and on December 15th in Japan. The EU date has yet to be announced, but we can assume it’ll be around the 14th, 15th or 16th. This new Splatfest’s theme is centered around Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

This time it’ll be Team Heroes vs Team Villains, with the color scheme being Red for the heroes and Purple for the villains.
For those who are unaware, the Splatfest (which first originated in the original Splatoon game), is an event in which players take part in Turf War and try to win as many games as they can for their respective teams. At the end of the Splatfest, each side is awarded points from three categories – Popularity, Solo Wins, and Squad Wins. The team which wins the most categories and has the most points is named the winner.
