If Ice Cream Cake is booth ice cream and cake, then Cookie Cake is also cookie and cake.

Ice cream cake is cake made BETTER by ice cream. Cookie cake is cake made BETTER by cookie. Seems like cake really needs a lot of help to shore up it's end of the bargain here doesn't it?

Sorry to interrupt Cake vs. Ice Cream chat, but Nintendo put out a Youtube video for Salmon Run. They're... really bad at it, but they do show off another Salmon Run stage halfway through, Marooner's Bay.

That cover in particular is really neat. And it sounds like he's a huge nerd (in a positive sense) in general. I was mainly impressed that his twitter has fanart of the loving powerpunk girls of all things. It's crazy how even the most obscure poo poo can reach the other side of the world nowadays.

If you're got a way to order stuff from Japan, his booth profile's over 'ere:

https://yutaagc.booth.pm/

Tidepool 1's basically a story about how two lovers best friends ended up adopting and raising a kid - Inkling got bribed into it with a Regressive rock CD.

Tidepool 2's a story about how the raging lesbians bitter rivals met - They ended up in a death-or-glory fight during the Inkling's tenure as Agent 3. Melon bread was also stolen.

Tidepool 3's an explanation as to where the orphan came from.

The salvage book is an artbook collab, but it's essentially Splatoon crossed over with Ico, Overwatch, Zelda, Star Fox, MGS, Bio shock and Akira.

I was also hoping to get stuff from NanaGreenTeam, but he doesn't sell his stuff anymore. It looks like he took his Splatoon OCs and made an Office RomCom out of them.

edit: Oh gently caress, He's doing advertisements with them

They dropped a whole bunch of stuff on the Squid Research tubmblr today, but here's some highlights:

The ability doubler main is only found on the Splatfest tee. Maybe I was the only one curious about this? Anyhow this seems to be a good way to reward squids who bother to grind XP on their borrowed t-shirts.

Dapple dualie details. They trade range for mobility, and come with the squid beakon sub and the suction bomb launcher special.
Clash blaster characteristics. It trades damage for fire rate, and comes with the splat bomb sub and the stingray special
Goo tuber trivia. It trades charge rate for the ability to hold a charge for a long time, and comes with the suction bomb sub and the splashdown special.

The Brella isn't gonna be around on day 1, and will come in a future update. I was really looking forward to going Mary Poppins on some squids but I guess I'll wait.

The bucket is a decent shotgun analogue. Powerful close-range weapon with spread.

The sploosh-o-matic is probably the closest thing in Splatoon 1 to this. Powerful weapon with decent spread and very limited range. An acceptable AA-12 analogue IMO.

Ice Cream simply comes in more varied and distinct flavors. I think you can get any flavor cake comes in, as an ice cream. But you can't get every ice cream flavor as a cake.

Can GMT players play their Splatfest then wait a bunch of time and then play the US one? Can you have different regions of the same game on the same Switch?

Edit: Is it as simple as make a US/JP Nintendo ID on PC, make a new Profile on the Switch called like '[Name]US', then just link them?

Yea, all you need to do is create a JP locale Nintendo account to download the Japanese client. You can then play in their Splatfest on any account you choose.
