It wasn't delayed. Which makes more sense- holiday splatfest far from christmas, or near christmas?

January 4th is neither of those things...

when you hold a splatfest that day and ask who do you spend the holidays with after the holiday season is over...it seems like a stupid question ask

i would have preferred the smash splatfest a week before smash came out, AND a christmas one after, to give new players a chance to get the basics down...

I could understand the logic behind it a bit.

- You want to have it after Christmas so that people just getting the game as a gift can see the announcement and play

- You want to announce it a week ahead of time so that people can gear up

- They announce it Friday after Christmas (December 28th) so that the new people can see it and get ready for the Splatfest on the following Friday (January 4th)

So Smash didn't really delay it.

N could've just switched the places of the fests. Why does the Smash fest have to be now? Why not the Squidmas fest when its ACTUALLY f***ING SQUIDMAS!? Smash isn't running away. And we will not get another squidmas fest. Morons at Nintendo strike again.

Probably wanted to market it while it was fresh in everyone's minds. That's typically the best time for that sort of thing.

And it's not specifically Christmas. Just covers both it and New Years. (And Christmas isn't that big of a deal in Japan.)

Would you prefer not even having one to that?
If not, I refer you to my previous timeline.

This is a big deal, like the Halloween one. They likely want new players to be able to participate.
