The Splatfest will take place in Splatoon 3 between November 17-19, 2023. In North America and Europe, players will battle it out over their favorite greeting. Do you prefer a handshake, fist bump or hug? As always, these teams are represented by different members of Deep Cut. Shiver is team handshake, Frye is team fist bump and Big Man, appropriately for his shape, is team hug.

In Japan, players will be asked if they prefer to call their bean paste deserts oban-yaki, Kaiten-yaki or imagawa-yaki. This marks the first regional Splatfest since Splatoon 2.

This will be the eleventh Splatfest in Splatoon 3. Most recently, there was a special Halloween event asking players if they’d prefer zombies, skeletons or ghosts as friends. Before this, an event celebrating the first anniversary of the game asked players to pick their favorite member of Deep Cut. Other Splatfests have been about ice cream flavors, elements of the Triforce, cryptids and Pokemon types, among others.

Splatoon 3 is out now for Nintendo Switch. The November 2023 Splatfest will take place on November 17-19, 2023.
