Another two weapons are now live in Splatoon. Nintendo has given players access to the Custom Dual Squelcher as well as the Carbon Roller.

Here’s an overview of both weapons from Nintendo:

Custom Dual Squelcher

It’s got range, rapid fire, and Squid Beakons to give your squid buds a place to Super Jump to. And with the Killer Wail special you can zone your enemies for days!

Carbon Roller

This lightweight roller excels in the mobility department. It’s fling attack doesn’t toss a ton of ink, but it’s coupled with Burst Bombs for ranged splattage. Throw an Inkzooka in the mix and it’s on like Crusty Sean!


Update: Bumped to the top. Nintendo’s official patch notes have been added in.

Famitsu recently held a “Splatoon Squid Fashion Contest” for Japanese fans of the game. It was most definitely a success with the magazine having received over 800 entries. Today, the official results were announced.

Pictured above is the winning entry for the Splatoon Squid Fashion Contest. The costume will be added to the title through an update in August, and the winner will be receiving a signed poster. It’s currently unclear if Splatoon players in North America and Europe will gain access to the costume.

There are a few other “sub-winners” in the gallery below. The first three are choices from the Splatoon team, and they’ll be given a signed poster by the developers. The final three are Famitsu’s choices, with those winners earning a signed poster from Takahashi Kino.
