Nintendo shared information on two weapon types set to appear in its recently announced Splatoon 2 via the game’s official Japanese Twitter account today. Both weapons appeared in the original game.
The first weapon is a Splatling-type called the “Heavy Splatling.” Taking into account its ease of maintenance, although the mounting angle of its distinctive barrel component and its parts configuration have changed, its basic weapon characteristics do not seem to have changed.
The second weapon is a Slosher-type simply called the “Slosher.” The screenshot reveals a change in the weapon’s handle and suspension parts. Like the Heavy Splatling and Slosher, Nintendo says, there are other weapons that have had model changes to match the two year trend change. (The original Splatoon launched for Wii U in 2015.)
Splatoon 2 is due out for Switch this summer.
