3 iPhone homescreen mockups displaying how to use the shortcut. The first displays selecting the default calendar, the second shows the calendar app with an event added, the third shows details of the event. Text on graphic reads: Splatoon 3 Events Calendar. How to us: Choose desired events and calendar, Run shortcut! Tip: Shortcut works best used as an automation that runs once a week to keep the calendar up to date. iOS Shortcut by @lostcat420 and data provided by splatoon3.ink.

This shortcut pulls Nintendo's Splatoon 3 schedule data from Splatoon3.ink's Schedule and Festivals API then adds events to your calendar. The following events are included by default and can be removed during the setup process:

  • 🎪 Challenges
  • 🎉 Splatfests
  • Salmon Run Events
    • 🐟 Normal Job Rotations
    • 🏆 Big Run
    • 🏅 Eggstra Work

Please note that event dates only become available as they appear in the Splatnet app. That means Splatfest, Big Run, and Eggstra events will only be added to your calendar within 1 week of the event, even if the announced date is previously known.


  1. During the shortcut set up process, remove any event types you do not want added to your calendar. Then specify the Calendar you want the events added to.
  2. Secondly, allow the shortcut to delete events from your calendar. This will prevent the shortcut from adding duplicate events to your calendar.

    Tip: Shortcuts have the ability to delete events without the confirmation step, but you need manually to activate that setting in your iOS settings Settings > Shortcuts > Advanced > Toggle on: Allow Deleting without Confirmation

  3. Set up a personal automation to run this shortcut once a week, it should keep your calendar up to date.
