Nintendo and Nickelodeon are teaming up for a special collaboration in the upcoming Splatfest for Splatoon 2, and it’ll be a first-ever tournament-style event to determine which Ninja Turtle is the most popular.
The special Splatfest will feature the four Ninja Turtles, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. The tournament-style Splatfest will have fans vote in three rounds with the first pick starting on April 27 before the tournaments take place on May 4-5 starting with Raph vs. Leo, followed by Mikey vs. Donney on May 11-12. The final match between the winners will take place on May 18-19.

Here’s a quote from Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Doug Bowser:
“We love working with unexpected partners to expand our brand and bring smiles to people’s faces in surprising ways. Teaming up with Nickelodeon and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made perfect sense, as we share many of the same fans who enjoy family-friendly entertainment and classic characters.”
Splatoon 2 is available on the Nintendo Switch.
