Palace vs. Theme Park vs. Beach, also known as Summer Nights, was a special Splatfest in Splatoon 3. It was the first Splatfest to take place during Sizzle Season 2024 and was announced on social networks on 28 May 2024[1] with the theme and date later being announced on 21 June 2024.[2]


Splatsville's unique decoration and other features for Summer Nights

This was the first Splatfest to allow conch shells to be rewarded after winning 10x, 100x and 333x Battles. The newly-introduced Conch Clashes also function in a similar fashion, and can be triggered when both teams in a battle are on the same Splatfest team.

As a special Splatfest, Summer Nights is accompanied by several cosmetic changes to the game, as well as new gear:

  • Splatsville, Inkopolis Plaza, and Inkopolis Square are decorated with a summer theme. These decorations include hanging flowers, artificial palm trees, inflatable flamingos, multiple pool floats, balloons and ice cream. The kitsune statue in Inkopolis Plaza and the tortoise statue in Inkopolis Square can be seen wearing sunglasses, while the origami crane statue in the Square has a pool float around its neck and balloons tied to its head. Small rising air bubbles can be seen throughout all three lobbies, as if they are underwater.
  • In the lobby, translucent stickers shaped like pufferfish and water droplets appear when the floor and wall are inked.
  • Deep Cut, the Squid Sisters, and Off the Hook wear special outfits.
    • Shiver's eyebrows, shawl and hair change to yellow, the latter having a gradient to purple towards the tips. She wears green leaf-shaped earrings in place of her usual ones, and an ornament resembling a large, curved lime slice pierced with light wooden chopsticks on her head. Her sarashi and charm tassels are changed to black, her shawl presents a dark yellow swirl circle pattern, and the soles of her shoes are electric blue; her fingertips are colored purple.
    • Frye's hair, eyelashes, shawl, and eyebrows are changed to blue. She wears green leaf-shaped earrings in place of her usual ones, and two blueberry-shaped ornaments on each side of her head, the left one also having another smaller blueberry on the front. Her usual shirt is colored white, while her pants are dark blue with a lighter swirly circle pattern and her socks are black; her fingertips and toe tips, as well as the holes on her pants and the tassels of her charm, are colored yellow.
    • Big Man has a coloration reminiscent of watermelon, with his body being green with a white stripe in the middle and his fins being red with a gradient to white towards the bottom, a magenta swirl pattern and black seed shapes. He wears a pair of magenta sunglasses on his head.
    • The Squid Sisters wear completely new, black and holographic outfits that do not bear any similarity with their usual ones. Callie wears a holographic strapless crop top with two zippers on the sides, a matching miniskirt, a light black mesh covering her midriff, and black tights; her footwear consists in a pair of silver ankle boots with black laces and chunky-heeled holographic soles. Similarly to her, Marie also wears a holographic strapless crop top, but it does not feature zippers; in place of Callie's miniskirt, mesh and tights, she wears baggy black suspenders and has her midriff bare, while her shoes are the same as her cousin's. They both wear lemon slices as ornaments, with Callie's having a prawn and a rosemary twig, and Marie's having an oyster and dill. Both of them also have new haircuts, with their back tentacles having been cut on the tips and their bangs straightened; Callie's bangs are one piece and feature short swirly sideburns, while Marie's are split in three and feature chunkier sideburns. The tips of their tentacles are colored lilac; Callie wears a cuff on the top of her left ear, while Marie wears black chain earrings on both.
    • Off the Hook wear outfits similar to their usual ones, with Pearl wearing a black version of her usual dress and boots, accompanied by her usual gloves and dark gray tights; her crown is replaced by a black mesh baseball cap with a holographic studded front, while her left front tentacle has a piercing-like ring on it, similar to her appearance in the music video for the song Suffer No Fools. Marina wears a holographic version of her usual shirt and shorts, while her boots, headphones and gloves are the usual black; she wears a straight purple visor on her eyes, dark gray tights, and her tentacles have a gradient to purple, while her fingers still change between the three team colors every stage rotation. She also wears a ring matching Pearl's on her back left tentacle, plus two more on her front right tentacle (which could not be seen in promotional photos due to the angle).
  • Characters in the cities and lobby such as jellyfish, Staff, Judd, Murch, and Smallfry wear yellow, aqua, and pink party hats decorated with various patterns.
  • A special news article in the Nintendo Switch news rewards players with six unique pieces of headgear:
  • Music is added or modified for the Splatfest.
    • A special surf rock song, Suntan Ocean, plays in the lobby instead of Soak & Stomp. Crab-N-Go also plays a unique samba-style theme.
    • The title screen has a new sound, along with the Deep Cut intro.
    • Anarchy Poisons is modified for the Splatfest to add steel drums and a guitar.
    • A special mambo rendition of Anarchy Rainbow is performed during the second half, played in a major key.
    • Opening is modified to add timbales and steel drums.
    • Ego Overboard and Still Swimmin' are remixed with a more "tropical" style, with additional vocal ad libs from Shiver, Frye, and Big Man. Ego Overboard is played in a calypso style, while Still Swimmin' is played in a swung reggae style.
  • The battle opening is modified with water splash effects and dancing squid and octopus icons. Bubbles appear in midair during the first few seconds of a match, similar to those in the hubs.
  • This Splatfest has a special ink variant, with animated streaks in a lighter shade resembling water caustics. This ink effect is not applied during mirror matches with the same team.
  • The TV screens in Splatsville display unique videos related to the summer theme of the Splatfest.

The Tricolor Turf War stage for this Splatfest was Hagglefish Market.


Results were announced in-game on 15 July 2024 at 02:00 UTC.

“Which would you reserve for a day? A palace, theme park, or beach?”

“Summer is here, and the heat is on!”

“My choice is a palace, where you can live it up royal-style.”


“I'm going with a theme park. Rides! Games! Carnival food! What's not to love?!”

Big Man

“Ay! (I'd rent out a beach for that blue horizon, white sands, and good friends!)”

“Whew! This is a choice I can get behind!”
Big Man

“Ay. (I wouldn't mind spending a day at any of these.)”

“I've never been to a palace, but I assume everything there is the absolute finest.”


“I'd wear swanky clothes for the occasion and dine on five-star meals before the ball.”

“Before the brawl? Ooo, is there gonna be some stylish violence at this thing?”

“And come bedtime, I'd sleep soundly on a four-poster fit for a queen.”
Big Man
“Ay. (Careful, or normal beds might be ruined for you forever.)”


“Eh, I'd be too worried about breaking stuff. Gimme a theme park where I can run wild!”


“Biggest benefit of reserving it: no lines! We can ride whatever we want, all we want.”


“If it's Wahoo World, I can take a bunch of photos with Fresh Fish. My sisters will flip!”

“Since when has there ever been a line for the Fresh Fish meet and greet?”

Big Man

“Ay? Ay! (Aren't theme parks more fun with a crowd? I'd rather reserve a beach!)”

Big Man

“Ay. (I could zone out watching the waves, or go surfing if that ever gets dull.)”

Big Man

“Ay! (And there's no sight like the setting sun reflecting off the water!)”
“Save it for the tourism board, buddy.”


“This topic makes me wonder what everyone else would do with their choice for a day.”

“Speaking of which, you've had that manga I lent you for a lot longer than a day, Frye.”


“Oops, almost out of time! Look forward to our special outfits during the Splatfest!”

“Frye. I am getting it back, aren't I?”

Big Man

“Ay... Ay! (Um... The plaza will be decked out for the event too! Wait till you see!)”

“Be sure to check the Nintendo Switch News app for your own festive gear!”

Big Man

“Ay! Ay! (Team Beach wins! It shore feels good!)”

“What a royal disappointment.”

“I am NOT amused!”

Big Man

“Ay. Ay! (Our steady waves wore down the competition. Give it up for Team Beach!)”
“Team Palace may not have won the crown, but you're all royalty to me.”
“It was a real roller coaster of emotions, huh, Team Theme Park?”

Big Man

“Ay? (If the three of us did reserve a beach, what would you two want to do?)”

“Hm. Good question.”


“I think I'd be most interested in racing around on a water scooter.”

“I'd smash watermelons, play volleyball, and... Oh! Make a huge sandcastle!”
Notes: Frye's comment about smashing watermelons is a reference to suikawari, a game often played on the beach in Japan during the summer.

“What about you, though, Big Man?”
Big Man

“Ay. (I'd watch the ocean to relax and let my mind wander, thinking of new songs.)”

“Doesn't quite sound like any of us are on the same page here.”
Big Man

“Ay. Ay! (But that's what's great about the beach. Everyone finds their own groove!)”

“Wat zou je een dag willen afhuren?
Een paleis, pretpark of strand?”

(What would you rent for one day? A palace, amusement park, or beach?)

“Het is zomer en hoog tijd voor een

(It is summer and high time for a dream vacation!)

“Stel je voor dat je een paleis kon afhuren,
voor een vorstelijk verblijf vol luxe!”

(Imagine that you could rent a palace, for a regal residence full of luxury!)


“Of wat dacht je van een pretpark, met
attracties, spelletjes en allerlei snoep?!”

(Or how about an amusement park, with attractions, little games, and all kinds of candy?!)


“Ay! (Of een strand, met een blauwe zee, zacht wit zand en sfeervolle avonden!)”

(Ay! (Or a beach, with a blue sea, soft white sand, and atmospheric evenings!))

“Ha, dat zie ik ook wel zitten!”

(Ha, I would be up for that too!)

“Ay. (Ik zie alle drie deze opties wel zitten.)”

(Ay. (I would be up for all three of these options.))

“Ik ben nog nooit in een paleis geweest, maar
alles is daar vast het neusje van de zalm!”

(I have never been in a palace before, but everything there must be the crème de la crème!)


“Met heerlijke diners, prachtige gala's en
bediening die altijd voor je klaarstaat...”

(With delicious dinners, splendid galas, and attendance who are always standing by you...)
“Dat mag ik hopen. Ik ga echt niet in een paleis
zitten als de tv geen afstandsbediening heeft!”

(I should hope so. No way I would be in a palace when the tv has no remote control!)
Notes: Frye misunderstands Shiver's comment on there being bediening as something that operates a device instead of staff that serves you.

“En dan kan ik me 's avonds heerlijk
uitstrekken in een enorm hemelbed.”

(And then I can stretch myself out gloriously in an enormous canopy bed at night.)
“Ay. (Kijk maar uit, want daarna wil je vast
nooit meer in een normaal bed slapen.)”

(Ay. (Better watch out, cause after that, you are bound to never want to sleep in a normal bed anymore.))


“Ik zou me niet thuis voelen tussen die dure zooi.
Geef mij maar een pretpark om me uit te leven!”

(I would not feel at home between that expensive stuff. Just give me an amusement park to indulge myself!)


“Het is het 100% waard om een pretpark af te
huren, want dan hoef je niet in de rij te staan!”

(It is 100% worth it to rent an amusement park, cause then you don't have to stand in line!)


“En in Waterwonderland heb ik dan alle tijd
om met Vismaatje op de foto te gaan!”

(And in Wahoo World, I will then have all the time to get a picture with Fresh Fish!)
“Dus alle vrijheid voor jou, maar niet voor
Vismaatje? Arme Vismaatje...”

(So all the freedom for you, but not for Fresh Fish? Poor Fresh Fish...)


“Ay? (Leuk al die actie van het pretpark,
maar wat als je wat wilt luieren?)”

(Ay? (Sounds nice all that action in the amusement park, but what if you wanted to laze about some?))


“Ay. (Op het strand kun je loom naar de
golven staren, maar ook surfen als je wilt.)”

(Ay. (On the beach you can stare lazily at the waves, but you can surf too if you want.))


“Ay! (En geen attractie kan op tegen de
zonsondergang die glinstert in het water!)”

(Ay! (And no attraction beats the sunset glistening in the water!))
“Met dat soort leuzen kun je een reisbureau

(With that sort of slogans you can begin a travel agency...)


“Waar zouden anderen voor gaan als ze iets
een dag helemaal voor zichzelf konden hebben?”

(What would other people be going for if they could have something completely for themselves for a day?)

“Over 'hebben' gesproken... Hoe zit het met
dat stripboek dat je van me hebt geleend?”

(Speaking of 'having'... How about that comic book that you have borrowed from me?)


“Oeps! De tijd zit er bijna op! Kom naar het
Splatfest! We zullen ons feestelijk verkleden!”

(Oops! The time is almost up! Come to the Splatfest! We will dress up festively!)
“Muriël, je geeft het wel aan me terug, toch?”

(Frye, surely you will be giving it back to me, right?)


“Ay... Ay! Ay! (Ehhh... En het plein zal ook
versierd zijn! Komt dat zien!”

(Ay... Ay! Ay! (Uhhh... And the square will also be decorated! Step right up!)

“Ga naar het nieuwskanaal op de Nintendo Switch om je eigen feestkleding te krijgen.”

(Go to the news channel on the Nintendo Switch to get your own festive clothing.)

“We huren de boel af voor een zomers

(We are renting the place for a summery Splatfest!)

“Ay! (Maak je keuze bij de stembus op het
plein en ga de strijd aan voor terrein!)”

“Ay! (Team Strand heeft de overwinning gepakt
als een vloedgolf die een strandslipper opeist!)”

(Ay! (Team Beach has taken the victory like a tidal wave that claims a beach flip-flop!))

“We zijn van de troon gestoten...”

(We have been dethroned...)

“Dat was geen pretje...”

(That was no fun...)


“Ay! Ay! (Goed werk, Team Strand! Jullie
hebben de anderen in het zand laten happen!)”

(Ay. Ay! (Good work, Team Beach! You folks have made the others bite the sand!))
“Het heeft ons geen paleis opgeleverd, maar
Team Paleis heeft toch vorstelijk gevochten!”

(It has not resulted in us having a palace, but Team Palace has battled regally anyway!)
“En team [sic] Pretpark heeft een achtbaan aan
emoties geleverd. Precies waar ik van hou!”

(And Team Amusement Park has delivered a rollercoaster of emotions. Precisely what I love!)


“Ay? (Als we samen een strand zouden
afhuren, wat zouden jullie dan doen?)”

(Ay? (If we would rent a beach together, then what would you guys do?))

“Hmmm. Goeie vraag.”

(Hmmm. Good question.)


“Ik zou een heel groot zandkasteel bouwen.
Zo groot dat je het een paleis kunt noemen...”

(I would build a very great sand castle. So great you could call it a palace...)

“Ik zou op een waterscooter scheuren,
alsof het een wildwaterpretpark is!”

(I would tear on a water scooter, as if it was a whitewater amusement park!)

“En jij? Wat zou jij doen, Ray?”

(And you? What would you do, Big Man?)

“Ay. (Ik zou naar de zee staren, ontspannen
en misschien nieuwe nummers bedenken.)”

(Ay. (I would stare at the sea, wind down and maybe think of new songs.))

“Maar dan zouden we dus niet echt samen
iets aan het doen zijn...”

(But so then we wouldn't truly be doing something together...)

“Ay. Ay! (Dat is het mooie aan het strand.
Iedereen vindt zelf wel iets om te doen!)”

(Ay. Ay! (That is the beauty of the beach. Everyone will surely find something to do themselves!))

парк развлечений – совсем другое дело!»

(Uh, I'd be afraid to break everything in there. But the amusement park is a whole different story!)


«К тому же, если арендовать целиком,
то и очередей не будет. Катайся не хочу!»

(Besides, if you rent it whole, there will be no lines either. Ride all you like!)


«В луна-парке «Язь» я бы сфоткалась
с Плавнишкой. Мои сестры обзавидуются!»

(At Wahoo World, I'd take a pic with Fresh Fish. My sisters will die of envy!)
«На фотосессии с Плавнишкой
очередей и так никогда не бывает...»

(There are never any lines at the photo shoots with Fresh Fish anyway...)

Биг Ман

«Ик! (Разве весело в парке развлечений
в одиночку? Вот на пляже – да!)»

(Ay! (Is it really that fun being at an amusement park alone? One a beach, though – it is!))

Биг Ман

«Ик. (Я смогу просто смотреть на волны,
а если надоест, пойду серфить.)»

(Ay. (I can just watch the waves, and if I get bored, I'll go surfing.))

Биг Ман

«Ик! (А лучи заходящего солнца на воде?
С этим зрелищем ничто не сравнится!)»

(Ay! (What about the rays of the setting sun on the water surface? Nothing can compare to such spectacle!))
«Ты такие речи туристам задвигай, ладно?»

(You better push such speeches to tourists, okay?)


«Так интересно, что бы арендовало

(So curious what the majority would rent!)

«Кстати, Мурия, где мои комиксы, которые
ты у меня тоже «арендовала»?»

(By the way, Frye, where are my comics that you also «rented» from me?)


«Упс! Время-то подошло к концу!
Пора примерять наряды к Сплатфесту!»

(Oops! Looks like the time's up! It's time to try on the outfits for the Splatfest!)
«Мурия, ты вернешь комиксы или нет?!»

(Frye, will you return the comics or not?!)

Биг Ман

«Ик... Ик! (Э... Площадь тоже приукрасим
к Сплатфесту! Скоро все увидите сами!)»

(Ay... Ay! (Uh... We'll also decorate the square nicely for the Splatfest! You'll see it all yourself soon!))

«Посмотрите снаряжение для Сплатфеста
в приложении Nintendo Switch News!»

(Check out the Splatfest gear in the Nintendo Switch News app!)

«Палящий летний Сплатфест начался!»

(The scorching summer Splatfest has started!)

«Ик! (Сделайте свой выбор в терминале
для голосования на площади, и вперед!)»

(Ay! (Make your choice at the Pledge Box in the square and go!))

«Ик! Ик! (Команда «Пляж» победила!
Под вашими ногами золотой песок!)»

(Ay! Ay! (Team «Beach» won! Under your feet lies golden sand!))

«Из князей в грязи...»

(From riches to rags...)

«Развлечься не удалось!»

(Couldn't entertain ourselves!)

Биг Ман

«Ик. Ик! (Наши волны атак стерли вашу
оборону в песок! Команде «Пляж» ура!)»

(Ay. Ay! (Our waves of attacks grinded your defense to sand! Hurray to team «Beach»!))
«Команда «Дворец», вы не удостоились
короны, но держались по-королевски!»

(Team «Palace», you didn't receive the crown, but you carried yourselves like royalties!)
«Команда «Парк развлечений», мы с вами
покатались на эмоциональных качелях!»

(Team «Amusement park», we all rode on the emotional swings!)

Биг Ман

«Ик? (Если бы мы втроем арендовали
пляж, что бы вы делали?)»

(Ay? (If the three of us were to rent a beach, what would you do?))

«Хм, хороший вопрос.»

(Hm, good question.)


«Думаю, можно было бы погонять
на водных мотоциклах.»

(I think we could ride some jet skis.)

«Я бы лопала арбузы, играла в волейбол
и... построила из песка огромный замок!»

(I'd munch on watermelons, play valleyball and... build a giant castle out of sand!)

«А ты, Биг Ман?»

(And you, Big Man?)
Биг Ман

«Ик. (Я бы смотрел на океан, мечтал
и придумывал новые песни...)»

(Ay. (I'd watch the ocean, dream, and come up with the new songs...))

«Похоже, у нас совсем разные планы.»

(Looks like we have completely different plans.)
Биг Ман

«Ик. Ик! (На пляже каждый найдет то,
что ему по душе. Этим он и хорош!)»

(Ay. Ay! (Everyone will find something of their liking on a beach. This is why it's so good!))

«¿Qué alquilarías durante un día? ¿Un
palacio, un parque temático o una playa?»

(What would you rent for a day? A palace, a theme park, or a beach?)

«¡El verano llegó y también el calor!»

(Summer has arrived and so has the heat!)

«Mi elección sería un palacio para disfrutar
de un día absolutamente majestuoso.»

(My choice would be a place to enjoy an absolutely regal day.)


«Pues yo elegiría un parque temático. ¿Comida,
atracciones y juegos? ¡No se puede pedir más!»

(Well, I'd choose a theme park. Food, attractions, and games? Can't ask for more than that!)


«¡Zasss! (¡Yo alquilaría una playa por el azul
del mar, la arena y la buena compañía!)»

(Ay! (Well, I'd rent a beach for the blue sea, the sand, and good company!))

«Bueno, cuando lo dices así, ¡tampoco
suena nada mal!»

(Well, when you say it like that, that also doesn't sound bad!)

«Zasss. (La verdad es que todas las
opciones me parecen muy buenas).»

(Ay. (Honestly, all the options look real good to me.))

«Yo jamás he estado en un palacio, pero nada
superaría ese nivel de lujo y distinción.»

(I've never been in a palace, but nothing could overcome that level of luxury and distinction.)


«Luciría mis mejores galas y organizaría una
cena de alta cocina seguida por un baile.»

(I'd show off my best galas and organize a fine cuisine dinner, followed by a dance.)
«¿Baile? ¿O sea como un concurso
con premios para los ganadores y eso?»

(Dance? Like, a contest with prizes for the winners and all that?)

«Y, para concluir el día, dormiría en una
enorme y mullida cama digna de una reina.»

(And to end the day, I'd sleep in an enormous and soft bed worthy of a queen.)
«Zasss... (Si haces eso, las camas normales
nunca te volverán a parecer lo mismo...)»

(Ay... (If you do that, regular beds will never feel the same for you...))


«No sé, en un sitio tan refinado, me
preocuparía romper algo sin querer.»

(I don't know, at such a refined place, I'd worry about accidentally breaking something.)


«En el parque de atracciones puedo hacer
lo que quiera y ¡sin tener que hacer fila!»

(At the theme park, I could do whatever I want and without having to line up!)


«Si fuera Pirañalandia, ¡me tomaría un
montón de selfis con la mascota del parque!»

(If it were Wahoo World, I'd take a whole bunch of selfies with the park's mascot!)
«¿Y de cuándo acá hay filas para tomarte
selfis con la mascota?»

(And since when have there been lines to take selfies with the mascot?)


«¿Zasss? (Y, además, lo divertido es compartir
el parque, ¿no? ¡Me quedo con la playa!)»

(Ay? (And, besides, the fun is in sharing the park, right? I'm sticking with the beach!))


«Zasss. (Podría relajarme viendo las olas
o incluso surfear si me aburro).»

(Ay. (I could relax watching the waves, or even go surfing if I get bored.))


«¡Zasss! (¡Y no hay nada tan bonito como
el sol reflejándose en el mar al atardecer!)»

(Ay! (And there's nothing prettier than the sun reflecting off the sea at dusk!))
«Sí, ya, como sacado de un folleto

(Yeah, alright, like straight out of a tourist pamphlet...)


«Pero, en serio, ¡me pregunto lo que nuestra
audiencia preferirá alquilar por un día!»

(But, really, I wonder what our audience would rather rent for a day!)

«A propósito... ya ha pasado mucho más de
un día desde que te presté aquellos cómics.»

(By the way... it's already been way more than a day since I lent you those comics.)


«¡Uy, se nos acaba el tiempo! ¡Espero que
les gusten nuestros atuendos especiales!»

(Gah, we're out of time! I hope you'll like our special outfits!)
«¡Angie!... Me los vas a devolver, ¿verdad?»

(Frye!... You're gonna give them back to me, right?)


«¡Zasss! (Este... ¡Y la plaza también
estará engalanada para la ocasión!)»

(Ay! (Uh... And the plaza will also be decked out for the occasion!))

«Y fijense en las noticias de Nintendo Switch.
¡También habrá artículos de aire festivo!»

(And keep an eye on the Nintendo Switch News. There will also be gear with a festive vibe!)

  • This is the first special Splatfest event that is original to Splatoon 3 as all other special Splatfest events were previously featured in Splatoon 2.
  • The Splatfest was announced on 28 May, 2024, the ninth anniversary of the original Splatoon in Japan.
  • This is the first Splatfest during which an idol (Callie and Marie in this case) has a completely different hairstyle as a part of their special costume.
    • In Callie's case, this is the second instance her model has had a different hairstyle, the first being her look in Return of the Mammalians.
  • Promotional screenshots posted on Twitter before the Splatfest showed an Octoling wearing a Splatfest Tee with a purple Lionfish Funface on the front instead of the Beach icon, possibly to avoid spoilers. The Splatfest Tees shown in the promotional picture of the Splatfest's themed gear lack team icons altogether.
  • Had this Splatfest used the results scoring system from before Version 7.0.0’s release, which only awards points for the winner of each results category, then Team Theme Park would have been declared the winner. [5]
  • Currently, the teams Big Man represented have won all seasonal Splatfests in Splatoon 3.
  • One of the TV screen animations for Summer Nights parodies the Bemani rhythm game series Dance Dance Revolution, using squid icons instead of arrows.
