The Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019 was a Splatoon 2 tournament that took place several days before E3 2019.

Qualifiers

One team was chosen to represent each of the four regions at the World Championship through its own regional tournament: Japan, Europe, North America, and Australia/New Zealand.

Japan

GG BoyZ won the fourth Splatoon Koshien tournament and represented Japan in the World Championship for the second consecutive year.[1] All four members who played in the previous year's World Championship came back to defend their title, including Dynamon, who was in this championship for the third consecutive year.

Europe

Alliance Rogue, the French team comprised of members of rival European teams Kraken Paradise and Team Olive, won Paris Games Week to earn the right to represent France in the Splatoon 2 European Championship 2018-2019. There, this team of French all-stars won its group over Overtime of Belgium and NinPlayers of Italy, then defeated Ämpäri Gang of Finland — also consisting of members of Kraken Paradise and Team Olive — and finally dethroned Europe's defending champions, BackSquids of Germany, to win both the championship and the right to represent Europe in the World Championship.
