Knights vs Wizards worldwide Splatfest announced for March 15th.

EDIT for fixes: Your gear is actually your normal gear, but if you use wear the hat and shoes of the Enchanted or Steel series depending on your side, your Splatfest Tee will change to that shirt of that set, but retain the double power ability.

EDIT 2: It works with all Octoling amiibo gear, including the Fresh Fish set from the Octo form, and it doesn't matter what you put on on any of those sets, it will automatically transform your full set into your side's full set.

[down] Well, you better go out and buy the Octoling amiibo you commercialized sheep or be stuck with the boring Splatfest shirt.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

But I don't have the octoling amiibo!

How soon before a Splatfest can you get your tee, btw? Last time I did it the night before, and quickly suspected I needlessly cut off the amount of time I could have had with it.

The Tee is available as soon as the Splatfest is announced in-game.

Mar 8th 2019 at 9:19:05 AM

So, I can get it now?

The in-game Splatfest announcements are typically about a week before the Splatfest.

Fun fact:

Fresh Fish has a video game tie-in (where you can play as either a Knight or Wizard), and Off The Hook wrote the Theme Song for it.

Fresh Fish has movies and now a video game that is possibly an RPG. I wonder what other tie-in media does Fresh Fish have?

[up] Considering it's likely a shout-out to a just released new entry of a beloved RPG series with a very popular mascot character with a theme song written and sung by a pop idol, likely everything.

I would really like to see an actual cartoon show made of Fresh Fish. Something small, especially see what he looks like in motion instead of that head.

I still wish we could wear our regular shirts in Splatfest, even if only cosmetically.

Well, which side I'll be on in this Splatfest will be a difficult choice. I enjoy both knights and wizards as characters. In fact, my avatar is a Magic Knight.

His name is Spectreblade, and he was my main in a now-defunct MMORPG called City of Heroes, a Broadsword/Dark Armor Scrapper, a Black Knight who wore a suit of armor with the soul of its original owner, his many-times-great granduncle, bound to it.

Scrappers were the game's melee damage-dealing class, backed up by defense powers. While Broadsword was a rather straightforward "hit stuff with the sword" melee damage powerset, his Dark Armor defense set was more nuanced. While it didn't have the raw damage resistance or evasion of some other defense powersets like Invulnerability or Super Reflexes, it made up for it with stealth, status-inflicting auras, and two powerful AoE Life Drain abilities, one of which would revive me and stun nearby enemies.

Right now, I'm leaning more toward Wizard, since I'm more of a scholar than a fighter, but I haven't made a final decision yet.

I find it odd that Pearl is the knight and Marina is the witch. You'd think that Marina's love of heavy machinery would make her gravitate towards the knight.
