Nintendo’s Next Splatfest Vote; Spongebob or Patrick?

Yes, they really do mean the characters from Spongebob Squarepants. That’s really Nintendo’s next Splatfest theme in America and Europe, with the company teaming up with Nickelodeon to present the next Splatoon poll.

Here are the official tweets about it, if you need proof that I’m not actually joking:

So what can I say about this? Well to be honest, quite a bit actually. I’m rather pleased that for once in their life, Nintendo’s crossover stuff involves an American franchise rather than a Japanese manga or anime series (like in say, Super Mario Maker). Shows that the company is at least somewhat willing to try and appeal to kids outside of Japan with their crossovers and product tie ins and stuff.

But what do you think about this Splatfest? And who you supporting, Spongebob or Patrick?

R-really? I don't hate Spongebob or anything, but really? I have a really hard time believing Nintendo teaming up with Nick, but that's interesting. I guess Spongebob.

This actually reminds me of the episode of Spongebob where he and Patrick compete in the Fry Cook Games.


I am happy this time both areas will have the same theme. It is quite nice Nintendo opened up to have the Splatfest be about a cartoon not related to them.

Then again, the memes on the show happen so often that maybe it is not that surprising. I bet they didn't put Squidward because he'd win it with no sweat.


Ha, it's pretty fitting as far as the miiverse community for the game goes. I can't wait to see all of the Spongebob memes during the splatefest that are going to be posted around the stages.
