イカス屋台 (Ikasu Yatai) are promotional events for the Splatoon series held in Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.


Ikasu Yatai are stalls based on Japanese yatai food carts. They function as demo booths for the game, usually set up in pairs, with each stall hosting four Wii U or Nintendo Switch consoles, two on each side, with a TV connected to each of them.

A variation existed in which the stalls played video recordings of past tournaments instead of providing playable demos.
