April 2023 Splatoon 3 Splatfest Involves Nessie, Aliens and Bigfoot

Nintendo announced the April Splatfest for Splatoon 3. This one has a cryptid theme, asking players to indulge their inner conspiracy theorist to decide on which one is most likely to be real. It will begin on April 1, 2023.

The three cryptids the Splatfest is asking players to debate are the Loch Ness Monster (“Nessie”), aliens and Bigfoot. As always, each member of Deep Cut will be representing a team, with Shiver repping Nessie, Frye arguing for aliens, and Big Man appropriately standing for Bigfoot.

Splatoon 3‘s April Splatfest will run for 48 hours from midnight UTC on April 1, 2023 until midnight UTC on April 3, 2023. The sneak peek event begins on March 24, 2023 so players can prepare. Here, players can start earning conch shells from the Shell-Out Machine as a well as choose their teams in the plaza.

This marks the fifth Splatfest since the release of Splatoon 3 in September 2022. Previous themes included what players would bring to a desert island, Pokémon types, preferred flavors and types of chocolate. There was also a Splatfest prior to the release of the game, released as a time limited demo, the Splatoon 3 World Premiere. The theme of that Splatfest was rock-paper-scissors.

Splatoon 3 is out now for Nintendo Switch. The April Splatfest takes place April 1-2, 2023.
