The Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and Splatoon had a crossover….of sorts in May 2018 when they had a special Splatfest to promote Rise of the TMNT. For those unfamiliar it’s a small tournament that has two sides battle out over a personal choice like Hot Dogs or Hamburgers. This sounds a bit dumb on text but somehow it is something you have to experience to see why it’s a lot of fun. Everyone gets so much into it and has all these cool catchphrases and drawings that add to the mood.
This was indeed a special Splatfest since normally they don’t do licensed properties but also it lasted 3 weeks as it put up Raph vs Leo the first week, Mikey vs Donnie for the second, and for the final the winner of both first rounds. Raphael ended up winning the first round and I lost since I had been representing Leonardo while on the second round I was on the winning side by representing Donatello. Finally on the final round with Raphael vs Donatello I chose Raph and lost alongside him as Donatello won the tournament of best turtle.
