Splatoon 2's Halloween Event Now Over, Here Are The Results

Nintendo is bringing Splatoon 2's Halloween-themed Splatfest, Splatoween, back for an encore until November 1.


Update: Splatoon 2's Splatoween event has ended, and Team Treat once again emerged victorious. Although Trick was the more popular choice, Treat edged it out in the remaining two categories to seal the victory. Everyone who participated in the Splatfest will receive Super Sea Snails the next time they log into the game.

The original story follows.

Nintendo's colorful Switch shooter Splatoon 2 is hosting another encore Splatfest this weekend. The game's Halloween-themed event, Splatoween, is currently underway until November 1, and on top of that, you'll have another chance to snag some spooky headgear ahead of the competition.

Splatoween is a two-day event. The competition kicked off at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET on October 30 and runs until 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET on November 1. Throughout the Splatfest, Inkopolis Square will be decked out with Halloween-inspired decorations, and characters will be dressed in costumes.

Like the previous Splatoween, this month's event pits Team Trick against Team Treat. The latter emerged victorious the first time around, but players will have a chance to rewrite history this month. To participate in the event, choose your side from the voting terminal in Inkopolis Square and then jump into Turf War matches throughout the event period.

Everyone who participates in Splatoween will take home Super Sea Snails after the Splatfest ends. These can be used to add new ability slots to a piece of gear or re-roll one that has already been maxed out, making them very valuable.

Ahead of Splatoween, Nintendo is once again giving out some Halloween-themed gear for the game. You'll be able to claim four pieces of headwear from the Switch News channel: the Kyonshi Hat, Li'l Devil Horns, Hockey Mask, and the especially stylish Anglerfish Mask. These were also given out ahead of the previous Splatoween event, and they periodically appear in SplatNet 2's gear shop with different abilities attached.

Nintendo has been holding a handful of Splatfest reruns this year, but there's one brand-new Splatfest also scheduled for the game. In January, Splatoon 2 will host a special Mario-themed Splatfest in celebration of the series' 35th anniversary. That event will pit two of Mario's most iconic power-ups against each other: Super Mushroom vs. Super Star.
