Last year's Splatoon 2 World Champions had a tough fight, but ultimately secured their second Splatoon 2 World Championship in a row.

Live from the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, California, the Nintendo 2019 World Championships brought together the best Splatoon 2 teams from all across the globe. 

With a pretty stellar stage setup, Splatoon fans saw a whole tone of epic action all packed into a tiny window on Saturday during their E3 2019 event line-up. 

The 2019 Splatoon 2 Grand Finals

After earning a chance to get defend their 2018 title, the GGBOYZ had a bit of a slow start to their Grand Finals best-of-seven matchup. Across the stage from them, the squad from North America in FTWin fought through a difficult Alliance Rogue team to get there. 

With that recent series against Rogue, FTWin brought all of their momentum into the first two maps of their series against GGBOYZ. 

It would take a few supremely big-brain plays and a little bit of luck for GGBOYZ to flip that momentum back into their favor. The Japanese squad took three maps in a row to take the lead in the series 3-2, and entered match-point with all of the control. 

GGBOYZ Take It! 

Things looked like the might be a little rough for the defending champs in the Grand Finals, but once the ball got rolling, there was no stopping them. 

Now, as back-to-back Nintendo Splatoon 2 World Champions, the GGBOYZ from Japan secure their spot in the annals of history as the most dominant splatters of all time. 

The Final Fest

After the winning team was celebrated, the Splatoon 2 team announced that there would be one final Splatfest. 

Back when Splatoon 2 was launched, the team revealed that they would support two years of in-game festivities called Splatfests. As this July marks the second anniversary of Splatoon 2, it’s going to have its biggest event yet that sees all previous Splatfest stages in rotation. 

FinalFest will run from July 18th to the 21st. 


For now, this Splatfest announcement puts the cap on any idea that Splatoon 3 might be revealed at E3 2019 during the Nintendo E3 Direct

Following the wrap-up of the Nintendo Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019, the Smash Bros. Ultimate Championships kicked off.
