Here’s the official announcement. While the characters tied to each option aren’t shown, each time the order corresponds to different members of Deep Cut. “Spicy” will be Shiver’s team. Those who choose “sweet” will side with Frye. Finally, Big Man represents “sour.”

There have been two Splatfests in Splatoon 3 since the game launched. Things started with a deserted island question in September 2022. What would you take with: gear, grub, or fun? Gear, which was represented by Shiver, won. The second Pokemon-themed one happened in November 2022. The options involved the favored started: grass-type, fire-type, or water-type. Big Man and water-types won.

However, one Splatfest also happened ahead of launch. That was a rock, paper, scissors one in the August 2022 demo. Rock (and Shiver, by extension), won.

Splatoon 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch.
