It’s that time of year for companies to take part in my favorite phenomenon: seasonal video game content. Nintendo rarely gets involved in such a thing, but with live games being in their wheelhouse now, it makes sense for them to jump in with Splatoon 2 and the upcoming Splatoween event.

The culmination of the event is ultimately a Halloween-themed Splatest pitting players on the sides of tricking or treating. Like other Splatfests, this part will only run for two days and occur close to the middle of the month. Before that, though, Nintendo also has some scary new outfits for Inklings to wear. They’ll be distributed through the Switch’s news channel, which will contain portal links to unlock them in the game.

The outfits include a horned devil, a Chinese hopping vampire, a giant monster helmet, and a hockey mask that is legally distinct from any popular horror movie characters. The news posts to unlock these costumes are going up on October 5.
