The first Splatoon 3 Splatfest of 2023 is set. Nintendo announced it in North America, Japan, and Europe. This time the question is, “What’s your favorite taste sensation?” It will run January 6-8, 2023 in North America. (In Japan and Europe, it will appear January 7-9, 2023.)
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.”
The next #Splatoon3 Splatfest is on the way and the big question is:

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.
