Nintendo Shows Off A Splatoon 3 Weapon That’s Both New And Familiar

Just a couple of days ago, Nintendo revealed one of the new weapons for the upcoming Splatoon 3: the delightful Ink Vac. Designed to suck up ink and fire it back to create an explosion of chaos and colour, it’s sure to be a hit with fans of the franchise.

Now, Nintendo has revealed another new weapon, except this one looks a bit more familiar, particularly if you’ve been with the series from the very beginning. Called the ‘Triple Inkstrike’, the weapon allows you to fire three ink missiles in the air, before marking your targets with three balls. You can chuck these in quick succession for a deadly barrage of missiles, or you can space them out for more strategic strikes.

Of course, the original Inkstrike from 2015’s Splatoon had a similar use, allowing users to select their target via the Wii U’s Gamepad screen. We’ve lost the additional screen with Splatoon 3, granted, but the addition of two more missiles more than makes up for this.

Splatoon 3 will launch on the Switch on September 9th. Will you be picking up the new entry? Let us know with a comment!
