Splatoon 2's final Splatfest sees chaos reign

Pearl jam.

Two years to the day since it first released, Splatoon 2 wrapped up its final Splatfest over the weekend - with Chaos winning out over Order as Pearl mobilised her forces to beat her Off the Hook bandmate Marina.

It marks an end of sorts to Splatoon 2's official post-release support, which has boasted a regular stream of new maps, modes and weapons - and of course plenty of Splatfests, which have settled age-old rivalries such as that between mayo and ketchup (mayo being the winner, of course) and salty or sweet (the answer's salty, you dolt).

There's one final update coming to Splatoon 2 on July 31st - which will bring it to version 5.0 - which will allow players to host their own Splatfests, giving players the option to tailor ink colours and giving access to the previously time-limited Shifty Station maps.

It's fair to say, too, that Splatoon 2 has been a success. It's the Switch's best-selling game in Japan, where it's nothing short of a cultural phenomenon, and has enjoyed a meaty add-on in the shape of last year's Octo Expansion that bolstered the single-player content.

What's next for Splatoon? Well, with Pearl winning the final Splatfest there was the promise of chaos being brought to Inkopolis, though it's still unclear exactly how that will pan out.

And while Splatoon producer Hisashi Nogami says the team have been too busy with updates to think about what's next, players are currently conjuring up a few ideas of their own.
