Splatfests provide Splatoon 3 players the opportunity to participate in the silliest of debates, all while supporting their favorite idol. For a short period, the chaotic city of Splatsville turns into a neon wonder, and players can choose one of three teams to represent for the festivities. While Nintendo Switch owners can already download the Splatfest World Premiere demo, what time can you actually start playing the Splatfest and try Splatoon 3’s new wares? The answer depends on where you live.
