Splatoon 2/Rise of the TMNT collab
 
https://www.facebook.com/NintendoSwi...67786863317365

"Squids and Turtles collide! A special tournament-styled Splatoon 2 Splatfest will take place over 3 weeks to determine which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brother is the most bodacious!

The first of three Splatfest tournaments will pit Raph against Leo on 5/4-5/5, with the second on 5/11-5/12, featuring Mikey vs. Donnie, and the final match between the winners takes place on 5/18-5/19.

Log in to Splatoon 2 the evening of 4/27 to make your round one pick, and be sure to check out the upcoming “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” animated series, coming soon to Nickelodeon!"

Boy, that's outta left field, huh? Cool, though. I'm not a Splatoon fan so I'm not excited about this specifically, but it sets a pretty interesting precedent in a general sense. Nintendo being open to the TMNT crossing over in any capacity whatsoever with their original stuff is really neat.

I feel the same way.

I love this song.

Anyone wanna play Splatoon 2? :trazz:

TheBlueTurtle1 04-27-2018 05:50 AM

Sure, I play Splatoon every day, it's my most played switch game.

Friend code is, SW-7871-7983-6878, all are welcome to add and play some Splatoon, mario Kart, Bomerman, or whatever:)

sdp 04-27-2018 04:03 PM

I'll throw mine in as well:
SW 1592 3080 9631

Mario Kart or Splatoon


I wish the Splatfest gear was forever and not only for the event, I'd rock out my Leo shirt all year.


What's so fun about the splatfests is the creativity of the community over something as dumb as hotdogs vs hamburgers. It'll be great to have it be about a franchise I love and see all the fun memes that come out of it.

I haven't been able to register for it yet. Has anyone else been able to?

I think it just went live:

I'll be #teamLeo for the first round #teamdonnie for the second and let's see who makes it to the final round but if Donnie makes it I'm choosing him. I'm definitely never choosing Hulk Raph even if Raph has always been my fav.

Xiewin 04-27-2018 10:04 PM

I think you're underestimating Leo's popularity. He's winning by 24 votes or so?

When I saw the title, I thought they meant TMNT was going to be added in game. Kinda misleading lol.

I don't know how. I worded the title that way specifically so nobody would think they'd be straight up added as playable characters or whatever.

sdp 04-28-2018 06:25 PM

So far based on my findings at inkopolis there's definitely some shade being thrown at the Rise of TMNT designs but it's a very small minority, there's more people just mentioning they don't like TMNT in general, and many messages just having fun even if they might not be fans of TMNT. I do see mostly Leonardo t-shirts too so I think most are choosing him.

My message was #teamVenusdeMilo :lol:, things are already fairly awesome with the TMNT theme, I've been taking a lot of screenshots to remember the occasion.

Xiewin 04-28-2018 06:28 PM

Hope they are choosing him for the character rather than "I like the color blue" lmao.

Isn't Leo's character changing for this new show, though? But I picked him based on the Leo I've know for the past 30 years.

sdp 04-28-2018 07:16 PM

Raph is my fav. but his Hulk design sucks so I chose Leo whose design I actually like.

Most people are not fans and are choosing on character design or color.

Raphael is usually the most popular turtle, they really messed his chances in Rise with such a design.

Xiewin 04-28-2018 07:20 PM

Raph looks kind of cool in animation, but those shots don't really look so good.

I'm so tired of them making Raph this gigantic beast.
Like wtf were they thinking.
One of the splatoon characters said he was 6ft, and I dear hope to God that isn't true. Gives me even more PD vibes.
I miss 1990's Raph.

Hmm I don't think it's the design, I think mainly because of nick's depiction. I found his character there to be uselessly bad. Leo is the most popular nowadays. He was the only one to have a character arc in the nick show, so it was easier for people to cling on the him as their favorite.
