Who lives in a pineapple under Inkopolis’ sea? or who lives under a rock in that very sea? Well okay, maybe the universes of Spongebob’s Bikini Bottom and Splatoon’s Inkopolis are two very different places, but that isn’t the case for the next North American and European Splatfest! Yes, it was announced that the next Splatoon Splatfest event will not only be the first time North American players can play with the European crowd, but it is also a new franchise partnership between Nintendo and Nickelodeon asking players to choose which team they will align themselves with: Spongebob Squarepants or Patrick Star?
In the Splatoon Spongebob vs Patrick Splatfest, players will pick between these two beloved Bikini Bottom-dwellers and decide which of the two they prefer. Can’t we choose both? Well no, sadly, but I can personally say, don’t we all aspire to Patrick’s way of life? The guy actually lives under a rock, is dumb as dirt, has no job, and is one of the happiest beings on Earth… #goals?
While many are excited about the Splatoon Spongebob vs Patrick Splatfest event, there may be those of you who, like myself, will be attending PAX East on the weekend of the Splatfest, April 23rd through 24th. This is a choice that I personally predicted Nintendo would make with the date of their April Splatfest, but I was really hoping they wouldn’t because it means this author probably will not even participate in one battle. Ultimately, however, whether you’re attending PAX East or not, don’t forget to still vote for your team so you can pick up some
The Splatoon Spongebob vs Patrick Splatfest starts on April 23 at 6 a.m. PT and runs until April 24 at 12 p.m. PT, and this also marks the first Splatfest in which players from North America and Europe can be matched together.
