Nintendo confirms fork vs. spoon utensil war in upcoming Splatfest

Splatfest fork or spoon

Yesterday, there was a rumor going around that data miners had uncovered Splatoon 2‘s upcoming Splatfest topic. Today, Nintendo of America verified the speculation via tweet, and our worst fears have been confirmed: The question being asked is which is more important–fork or spoon?

Splatoon 2 fork or spoon
I don’t even want to know the context behind this

I can only imagine the bloodshed and relationships tarnished due to this debate. Forks dominate spoons when it comes to eating a piece of delicious cake, but spoons trounce forks when one is enjoying a bowl of savory Cinnamon Toast Crunch. There is no way this is going to end well because the third, rational option isn’t available: sporks.

The splatting will begin on August 24 at 9 p.m. PT. One vital thing to remember is a paid Switch Online membership will be mandatory to engage in later Splatfests once the second half of September hits.

Is anyone afraid of losing loved ones over this battle or finding it difficult to pick a side? Let us know with a comment below!
