Before you get to Hyrule you’re going to want to drop your anchor, because a special The Legend of Zelda inspired Splatoon 3 Splatfest event is sailing into view! That’s right squiddo, the Inklings and Octolings of the sun-scorched Splatlands are getting adventurous with a Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda Collaboration Splatfest! This limited-time event splashes down on May 5 and poses a question that fans of The Legend of Zelda may recognize: Which do you seek? Power, Wisdom or Courage?

The Splatfest will take place from Friday, May 5, at 5 p.m. PT to Sunday, May 7, at 5 p.m. PT, but you can make your selection in Splatoon 3 beginning today! You can even pick up real-life versions of the in-game T-shirts your Inklings and Octolings will be rocking at the My Nintendo Store. My Nintendo is going to offer a keychain set to celebrate this latest collab in the future, too. Stay tuned for more details!

If you haven’t had a chance to dive into Splatoon 3 yet, this is a great time because a Splatoon 3 + Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership (3 Months) bundle is available right now in Nintendo eShop and the My Nintendo Store for 20% off the price of purchasing them separately! With this bundle you can play in multiplayer matches, including the upcoming Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda Collaboration Splatfest.

Splatfests are custom, limited-time events in Splatoon 3 where players with any Nintendo Switch Online membership can pick one of three teams to splat it out for total victory. After choosing a side, you’ll participate in Splatfest Battles where teams must ink as much of the stage as possible. Splatfests also feature Tricolor Turf War battles in heated 4-vs-2-vs-2 battles with attackers and defenders. At the end of the event, the winning side is revealed and rewards are dished out (with the winning side getting more, of course). The upcoming Splatoon x The Legend of Zelda Collaboration Splatfest even features a stage with a distinct triangular shape that Hyrule fans in particular will want to try!

You can try the Nintendo Switch Online service free for a week. One month costs $3.99, three months cost $7.99 and a year costs $19.99 — but the best value is a family plan that costs $34.99 a year and accommodates eight people with free Nintendo Accounts. If you want to play Switch game online (Splatoon 3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, etc.), you’ll need to sign on with this service anyway.
