Splatoon 2 is going out for fast food with its next Japanese Splatfest, pitting two fan favorite McDonald’s menu items against each other — french fries and McNuggets.
While North America and Europe are participating in their own Flight vs. Invisibility Splatfest this weekend, Japan’s upcoming Splatfest installment focusing on the popular restaurant foods will be held next week on September 9 starting at 3 PM JST. Because of how quick of a turn around it would be for the West, this is presumably going to be a Japan exclusive event.
Although this is the first Splatfest with a corporate tie-in for Splatoon 2, it is not something new for the series altogether. Some examples of crossover content in the original Splatoon were Splatfests based on popular children’s cartoon Spongebob Squarepants, as well as the Transformers series of fighting robots.
