Nintendo promised that there would be a Halloween event for Splatoon 2, and the company stuck to its guns. Over the weekend gamers were able to participate in a showdown between two spooky monsters: Werewolves and Vampires. Well, the event is now officially over and here are the results: Vampires beat the Werewolves.

According to Twinfinite, the results were pretty close, with Team Vampire winning at 54% over Team Werewolves' 46%. As noted by the outlet, Pearl and Marina's rivalry has been rather one-sided, with Pearl taking all three Splatfest events so far.

This last Splatfest featured Vampires and Werewolves facing off in both solo matches and team battles, but Vampires managed to come out victorious in the Splatoon 2 showdown in each of the designated categories.

Many of the versus matches have been fairly close in Nintendo's team-shooter sequel, with plenty of gamers finding almost equal appreciation for the various categories where they face off against each other. For instance, the last Splatfest was a super-powered showdown between Flight and Invisibility. Once again, Pearl's team of Flight ended up taking the win. Before that, there was a showdown between Team Ice Cream and Team Cake, and the Ice Cream brigade ended up emerging victorious over the Cake lovers.

Nintendo has been pitting odd things against each other in the regional Splatfests for Splatoon 2, with Europe getting their own, North America having its own, and Japan getting its own. During this time gamers have been using the social zones in the Inktopolis to share relevant images in relation to the Splatfests. Some of the artwork is even fairly impressive.

For this latest Splatfest between the two horror icons, Nintendo actually prefaced the event by giving gamers some new weapons to get acquainted with. Just ahead of Splatoon 2's weekend event, some free DLC dropped in the form of the brand new Custom E-liter 4K and the Custom E-Liter 4K Scope. The weapons are sniper chargers for long range splatting. Both the chargers come equipped with a Squid Beacon sub-weapon and a Bubble Blower for the special. The scoped version gives you longer range for sniping, but the non-scoped version is designed to hold a charge, which isn't available in the scoped version.

This Splatfest also arrived shortly after an update was made available for the Splatoon sequel, which included balance tweaks for some of the modes, and the PvE content, along with the inclusion of a brand new map called the Snapper Canal.

The game has been a blockbuster seller for the Nintendo Switch... obviously not quite as much as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but definitely more-so than the other new IP such as ARMS and 1-2-Switch.

With the latest Splatfest all wrapped up nice and neat, gamers will have some respite before Nintendo unveils the next big Splatfest event for Splatoon 2.

You can pick up a digital or physical copy of the game right now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. If you hurry you might even be able to participate in the next Splatfest.
