Here’s the announcement about the Shiver victory in Splatoon 3.

The latest Splatfest for Splatoon 3 was held to mark the first-year anniversary of the release of the game. It was a battle between the members of the game’s main idol group Deep Cut. With Shiver declared the winner over Frye and Big Man, it marks her fifth consecutive Splatfest victory. It’s her sixth overall victory since the release of the game. If the pre-release Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere is counted, it’s her seventh. Her previous victory saw players declaring money to be more important and fame or love. To contrast with Shiver’s bandmates, Big Man has won two. Frye has only won one.

The winner was declared as part of the full results of the Splatoon 3 Anniversary Splatfest. Shiver won on the popular vote (55.18%), along with Clout gained from the Open competition (33.51%) and Tricolor Battles (34.06%). It wasn’t a full sweep, however, as Frye’s team managed to gain the most Conch Shells ahead of the event (34.65%) and Big Man’s team won on Pro Clout (35.35%).

The Splatfest closed out with the debut of a new song in the plaza, “Daybreaker Anthem” by Deep Cut themselves. After a hectic and highly competitive Splatfest, this chilled-out track offers players a chance to cool off. In the Inkopolis DLC, this was replaced by “Maritime Memory”, the end credits song from the first Splatoon performed by the Squid Sisters. Both songs are now available from the jukebox in the Lobby.

Splatoon 3 Anniversary celebrations will continue into the current Drizzle Season, with Deep Cut related items in the catalog. Amiibo based on the trio will be released on November 17, 2023.

Splatoon 3 is out now for the Nintendo Switch.
