Ahead of ever Splatfest in Splatoon 3, Nintendo tends to release special art inspired by the event, and The Legend of Zelda one is no exception. The official Twitter account shared art of the three members of Deep Cut fighting it out. As is usual, each one is supporting a side in this Triforce-themed crossover. It serves as both a celebration of the event and a reminder that it is taking place May 5-7, 2023.
As we might expect, this is due to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launching on the Nintendo Switch in May 2023. Shiver is tied to Team Power, aka Ganondorf. Supporting Frye means you back Team Wisdom and Zelda. Finally, Big Man is the representative for Team Courage and Link.
Only a few hours remain until the Splatoon x The Legend of #Zelda Splatfest begins in #Splatoon3!
Which team are you representing?#TeamPower#TeamWisdom#TeamCourage

To go along with this event, Nintendo is also selling merchandise. We can buy the shirts our Inklings and Octolings will be wearing during the Splatfest directly from the company.
Splatoon 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch, and The Legend of Zelda Splatfest is available May 5-7, 2023.
