Next month’s Splatfest in Splatoon 3 is going to be all about everyone’s favourite monster-catching franchise, Pokémon. After getting a look at some sweet collaborative t-shirts which still haven’t been announced for a European release (hint hint, Nintendo), we can now see the exclusive My Nintendo Rewards which are confirmed for Japanese buyers to mark the occasion.
As seen in a blog post by Nintendo Japan, the upcoming Splatfest will bring with it a collection of keychains, each displaying the same Water-, Grass- or Fire-Type logo that we saw previously on the Splatoon X Pokémon t-shirts. The keychains also show a little silhouette of the type’s respective upcoming starter from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly.
Pointed out by Serebii.net webmaster @JoeMerrick in the above tweet, the keychains will be available to purchase from the Japanese My Nintendo Store for 50 platinum points each.
The Nintendo Japan post also revealed that a sticker campaign will be launched across the country, with certain game retailers and Pokémon Centers to give out exclusive collaboration stickers with pre-orders of Scarlet and Violet. The three different sticker types can be found below.
These rewards are currently specified for Japan only, so seeing them come West remains nothing but a dream for the time being. However, the Pokémon-themed Splatfest will be kicking off on November 11th, so there is still some time for more rewards to be revealed – we’re holding out hope!
