Tournament Splatfest Incoming from the Sewers

Those of you who play Splatoon 2 probably know about the frequent Splafests which take place on the title. Every few weeks, players get to split themselves between two teams, such as Ketchup and Mustard, and then partake in exciting Turf Wars over a festival to figure out which side comes out on top.

Things will be switching up a notch next month however, with tournament-styled Splatfests. The first two weekends of May will host two different Splatfests, with two different teams at each one. The two teams which come out on top during those ‘qualifying’ Splatfests will go to the finals on the 19th and 20th May 2018 to deem the trues victor.

Just what will the theme be however? May’s tournament Splatfest will decide which turtle is the gnarliest, awesomest, and overall bestest of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Nintendo Direct Summary: September 2017

Nintendo crammed new reveals and information for over 40 titles in last night’s Nintendo Direct. Taking the Spotlight segments were Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Project Octopath Traveler and of course, Super Mario Odyssey.

Some of the most notable reveals were from Bethesda as they are bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein II to the Switch with the former in Winter this year and the latter in 2018. On a more peculiar note, Minecraft is coming to the New Nintendo 3DS ‘soon’ but with no word on compatibility with other versions. (more…)

Hisashi Nogami briefed us this morning with information on free content coming to Splatoon 2 in the near future in the form of a Squid Research lab video. two new maps will be arriving – Manta Marie for Turf War and Ranked Battle, and Lost Outpost for Salmon Run.

The Lost Outpost is releasing in an update tomorrow; Manta Marie is coming on the 26th of August, and a new weapon – the Bubble Blower – is coming as a part of a new set with the Forge Splattershot Pro arriving on 2nd September 2017.

Tournament – Summer Splatathon Returns in 2017!

Just extended sign up deadline to Friday 1st September 2017!

Splatoon 2 just got released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, and already it’s getting kraken reviews, especially from those awesome guys from NintyBuzz! It’s also been a whole year (and a couple days) since we started the first [the 3DS Buzz one was a pilot] ever Summer Splatathon Supreme Tournament. Wouldn’t you say now would be a good time to have another Splatathon?

Yup, that’s right! The Summer Splatathon is back for 2017, but this time we’ll be competing on Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch. Registration is open now, just comment below or, preferably, reply to this thread (click here). That’s not all. You can also win £50 of eShop credit (or your country’s equivalent) if you’re the top squid, kid!

Check out the details after the break!

Splat Brella Releasing Tomorrow for Splatoon 2

One of Splatoon’s unique new weapons is releasing tomorrow, the Splat Brella. This shotgun like weapon is perfect for close encounters, and holding fire will open up the parasol acting like a nifty shield. That’s not all, hold the brella open long enough will launch it forwards. Use this for a sneak attack… your enemy won’t know what splat them!

TOURNEY – Summer Splat-a-thon Supreme 2016

Can you believe it, Summer is nearly over. We still can’t get over The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from E3, but pretty soon we will have to return to normality, back to school, back to baggy trousers, that sort of thing. Luckily, we have one very last-minute organised trick up our sleeve to end Summer with a bang!

To top off the peak of Summer, we’d thought to host a new Splatoon tournament, the NintyBuzz Summer Splat-a-thon Supreme! We have actually already hosted this tournament before, back on 3DS Buzz Forums, before the big merge, last year. In the end, the member Pepe claimed victory and is chuffed with his Lucina Amiibo to top off his Fire Emblem series.

Check out all the info for this year after the break!
