The final Splatfest on "Splatoon" is about to commence this July, and to make things interesting, Nintendo is putting the Squid Sisters Callie and Marie up against each other.  ( Nintendo )

Nintendo announces the final Splatfest for Splatoon, and the showdown to end them all is Callie going up against Marie.

Right off the bat, the confrontation is scheduled to kick off the ground on July 22 at 2:00 a.m. PT and end on July 24 at 2:00 a.m. PT. Meanwhile, in-game announcement and voting is slated to begin on July 4 at 7:00 p.m. PT.

Needless to say, this also marks the end of official support for the third-person shooter, but have no fear, as servers will definitely remain alive.

The big question now is, which one of the Squid Sisters are you rooting for, or rather which side are you going to fight for?

As expected, Splatoon fans over at Twitter are up and about in declaring their allegiance. Some even used memes to spice things up.

"Time and time again, we've heard you pledge allegiance not to your favorite team choice, but to your favorite Squid Sister. Now, it's time to show your support in the Squid Sisters Showdown! The theme is: Are you Team Callie or Team Marie?" Nintendo says.

Kind of sounds like the choice between Iron Man and Captain America when Civil War was just about to hit silver screens everywhere.

For those who don't know, a Splatfest is a special event that makes players choose a side between two things. To get a better idea of what it has in store, here's a quick look at the past showdowns:

• Cats versus Dogs

• Art versus Science

• Autobots versus Decepticons

• Burgers versus Pizza

Pokémon Red versus Pokémon Blue

It's also worth mentioning that this time around, Japanese players will only be matched with other participants in Japan. As for the North American and European players, they will be put against each other.

In other Splatoon-related news, Amiibo figures of Callie and Marie are set to roll out on July 8, and as anticipated, they'll come along with songs and psychedelic in-game dance moves.

With all said and done, feel free to drop by our comments section below and let us know what you think of the last Splatfest for the Wii U game. Of course, tell us which side has your support too.
