Win Nintendo Switch Eshop Credit In Splatoon 2's Next Tournament

Every member from the top team in this month's Splatoon 2 Turf War July 2020 tournament will earn $25 USD in My Nintendo Gold points.


Nintendo is hosting another competition in its colorful Switch shooter Splatoon 2 later this month. The Turf War July 2020 tournament kicks off on Saturday, July 18, and the prize is $25 USD in My Nintendo Gold points.

Every member of the winning team will take home 2,500 My Nintendo Gold points, which can either be redeemed for rewards on the My Nintendo website or used as credit toward select games and DLC on the Switch Eshop. The tournament is open to players in North America, and each match will be contested in Turf War.

Registration is open now until July 18, 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. To enter, you and your teammates will need to create an account on Battlefy. You can read the full rules for the Turf War July 2020 tournament here.

Although Splatoon 2 is no longer receiving content updates, Nintendo continues to periodically release patches for the game. The company recently rolled out the version 5.2.2 update, which resolved two exploits--including one that allowed players to reach the opposing team's spawn point in Starfish Mainstage--but didn't make any other balance adjustments. You can read the patch notes on Nintendo's support website.

In other Switch news, Tetris 99 is holding its own in-game competition right now. The game's 14th Maximus Cup takes place from July 3-6, and everyone who amasses at least 100 points during the competition will unlock a cool Xenoblade Chronicles theme.
