Rock vs. Paper vs. Scissors was a Splatfest event in Splatoon 3, accessed by downloading the Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere from the Nintendo eShop. It was announced on 10 August 2022 and lasted for twelve hours, beginning at different times depending on the player's region. Players from different matchmaking regions were able to play together in overlapping times.

The results were announced on 28 August 2022 at 14:00 UTC.

Details

The Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere is a free demo that allows players to play the Splatoon 3 tutorial, walk around Splatsville, and participate in the Splatfest. The software was launchable starting on 25 August 2022, allowing the plaza to be explored, but players could not participate in the Splatfest until 27 August 2022.

Due to being available before the full release of Splatoon 3, there is no record of this Splatfest in SplatNet 3.
