The age-old debate has finally been put to rest. The chicken came first! Well, in terms of the latest Splatfest competition anyway, not in terms of its existence. Team Chicken reigned supreme over Team Egg with a score of 2-1. The news comes to us via the Nintendo Versus Twitter account.
Egg got a majority of the votes by a pretty decent margin: 59% voted for Team Egg, while 41% voted for Team Chicken. However, it was the battle performance of Team Chicken that secured them the victory. The percentages of solo wins were fairly close with Team Chicken scoring 53%, and Team Egg scoring 47%. The team win percentages were also pretty close, but not quite as close as solo. Team Chicken made away with a percentage of 56%, while Team Egg trailed behind with 44%.
There you have it: Team Chicken wins. Although there are more people to fight for the argument that the egg came first, those willing to fight for the chicken just put up more of a fight. According to Splatoon 2, anyway. And with that, we have another Splatfest win for Pearl.
Splatoon 2 fans have a lot more than just Splatfests to look forward to in the near-future. The recent Nintendo direct showed off what players can expect from Splatoon 2’s version 3.0 update, and it also gave us a glimpse of the first ever single-player expansion for a Splatoon game, the Octo Expansion. It’s a good time to be a Splatoon fan.
