This article is about the Splatfest in Splatoon 3. For the Splatfest from Splatoon 2, see Tsubuan vs. Koshian.

あんこ vs カスタード vs ホイップ (Red Bean Paste vs. Custard vs. Whipped Cream) was a Splatfest event exclusive to the Japan region in Splatoon 3. It was the second Splatfest to take place during Chill Season 2023 and was announced on social networks on February 1 2024.[1]

The Americas/Oceania, Europe, and Hong Kong/South Korea regions' Friday vs. Saturday vs. Sunday Splatfest took place concurrently with this Splatfest.


This was the second Splatfest in Splatoon 3 to differ by region: players who select the Japan region were able to participate in this Splatfest, whereas players who selected the Americas/Oceania, Europe, or Hong Kong/South Korea regions would instead participate in the Friday vs. Saturday vs. Sunday Splatfest as a combined group, held at the same time.

The teams represented three very popular dessert fillings in Japan:

  • Sweet red (adzuki) bean paste, also known as anko; the team logo is a matchamanjū filled with red bean paste.
  • Custard cream; the team logo is a custard cream puff.
  • Whipped cream (referred to with just the loanword "whip" in Japanese); the team logo is a layered cake with whipped cream filling and strawberries.

The Tricolor Turf War stage for this Splatfest was Bluefin Depot.


Results were announced in-game on 19 February 2024 at 02:00 UTC.

Halftime Report

  • Red bean paste was also the theme of a Splatoon 2 Splatfest, Tsubuan vs. Koshian.
  • Since this Splatfest is exclusive to Japan, the related dialogue for Anarchy Splatcast was not available in languages other than Japanese.
    • When the system language is set to English or other European languages, the game starts normally in the selected language, but the Splatfest-specific dialogues are displayed in Japanese.
    • When the system language is set to Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, or Korean, the game is forced to reload into Japanese.
      • After getting the final results announcement and receiving Super Sea Snails, the game automatically reloads back into the system language.

  • This is the first region-locked Splatfest in Splatoon 3 to not share ink colors with its counterpart regions' Splatfest.
