Nintendo is making a mess of things to celebrate Splatoon’s launch

Nintendo is no stranger to promotional spectacles, once having turned Times Square into a tropical paradise to celebrate the launch of Wii Sports Resort. They’re doing something similar for Splatoon, which arrives on May 29th. On May 15th they will hold a competition in Santa Monica, inviting various celebrities to navigate a giant ink-filled obstacle course. If this means several Disney Channel actors bumbling their way through the equivalent of a Ninja Warrior course covered in copious amounts of fuchsia paint, then they certainly have my ticket. Spectators to the event will also get hands-on time with the game’s Turf War mode and a commemorative t-shirt.
