Nintendo schedules one more Splatfest for 'Splatoon 2' in May
It’s a #Splatoon2 #Splatfest so contentious we have to do it twice! #TeamMayo and #TeamKetchup are back and it’s up to you to determine which sauce is the boss!
This bonus one-off Splatfest kicks off 5/22 at 3pm PT and ends 5/24 at 3pm PT. pic.twitter.com/n5Ar6EUkJ0

Once all that is over, there will be a new Splatfest. The “last” of these special community events took place in July, but it’s apparently back for at least one more run. Players will be able to support either Team Mayo or Team Ketchup for two days between May 22nd and May 24th, beginning and ending at 6 PM ET.
When it arrived three years ago, we called Splatoon 2 a “cautious but excellent” evolution of Nintendo’s squirt gun shooter, and the two-part impact of a demo and new event should introduce new Switch owners to its unique brand of action.
In addition, #Splatoon2 will be available at a discounted price on Nintendo eShop during the duration of the Splatoon 2 Special Demo 2020, & a free 7-day trial of Nintendo Switch Online will also be available so you can play online with friends!https://t.co/aAc752hg4g
