After a successful Testfire for Splatoon 2, Nintendo and Battlefy seem to want to keep players playing the series, and they’re offering one heck of a prize if you do. A trip to E3 2017!
How this will go down, is that there will be a tournament starting on April 22nd. You’ll need to team up with 3 friends, all of which have to be 18 or over and live in the US with a Wii U with a copy of Splatoon. You’ll register your team, and then wait for the tournament to arrive. You’ll be going through various modes in the game, but the overall winning team will get to go to E3 2017 together.
Here is a statement Nintendo gave in the official press release!
“The qualifying round (Turf War) is on April 22 at 11 a.m. PT, but make sure to log in early and click the ‘Check In’ button an hour before tournament time. Once the bracket is seeded, you can set up your qualifying match using Battlefy’s Private Match Chat and then proceed to splat your way to hopeful victory. The top 16 teams in the qualifying round will then move on to the finals. In the finals, teams will play Turf War, Splat Zones and Tower Control in succession in single-elimination best-of-five play until only two teams remain. The Grand Finals will see the final two teams doing battle in Rainmaker mode to determine the winner. The finals will begin on April 29 at 11 a.m. PT.”
So get your team together, register, then train! The future looks bright if you do!
