And that, as they say, is that. After two years of messy online warfare, Nintendo's Switch shooter Splatoon 2 held its final splatfest this weekend, in which the global community took to the arena for an unprecedented 72-hour, determined to paint the town red (and green and pink etc) for one last hurrah.
In an event dubbed The Splatocalypse, players choose a side one last time, standing with Off the Hook's Pearl and Marina in the ultimate battle of Team Chaos vs. Team Order. The scores and in, and the day belongs to the Queen of the World, with Pearl's Team Chaos taking a 3 - 0 victory over Marina's Team Order. Chaos, it would seem, reigns supreme.
But never fear, fans. Although it's early days, it doesn't seem that the event has quite leveled the Splatoon universe as some feared, nor has it harmed the special relationship between our wonderful hosts. In fact, after some trademark shade, it's reported a tearful Marina was consoled by her bandmate, who told the octo-gal "Just playing Marina, you know I love you."
