Spongebob Is Coming To Splatoon! Yes, Really!
Splatfest 13 is SPONGEBOB-themed.
If firing ink at your enemies in a mighty Splatoon gaming battle wasn't fun enough, doing it with a SpongeBob SquarePants theme should get you excited.
That's what Splatoon's next Splatfest will be doing. And in a first, Europe and North America can be matched together!
During the weekend of 23 April 2016, Splatfest 13 will kick off across North America and Europe. This is a huge online battle that lets player team-up and shoot it out under a theme.
This year players will be asked to side with SpongeBob SquarePants or his starfish sidekick, Patrick Star. Your avatar will be given a RAD t-shirt with your chosen character on it. Then it's liquid coloured multiplayer war.
Splatoon is a fantastically addictive and super popular shoot 'em-up game on the Ninetendo Wii U. Unlike other multiplayer shooters this game uses ink instead of bullets, making it 100% fun and 100% messy.
Ink the floor or walls and you can move through or up it quickly, but your enemies will be reduced to a snail's pace. All the better for shooting them with more ink then!
Splatfest 13 will run:
6 AM PT (April 23) – 12 PM PT (April 24)
9 AM ET (April 23) – 3 PM ET (April 24)
2 PM in the UK (April 23) – 8 PM in the UK (April 24)
3 PM in Europe (April 23) – 9 PM in Europe (April 24)
This is the first time North America and Europe can be matched together. For more information check out the Splatoon website.
