Splatoon update and remixed weapons coming April 12th

The version 2.7.0 Update for Splatoon will be released on the evening of April 12th. And with the update comes a slew of remixed weapons.

In preparation for the update though, the Splatoon server will be under maintenance from 7:50 PM ET – 9:00 PM PT on April 12th, which means that online services for Splatoon will be unavailable.

At 10:00 PM ET eight remixed weapons, known as Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 1 will be available for purchase in the game at Ammo Knights as well.

First up is the Wasabi Splattershot. This beauty is a Splattershot set featuring a few key adjustments by Sheldon. The main weapon is pretty much the same as before, but Splat Bombs amp up its frontline capability. Alternatively, try calling in an Inkstrike to scatter the opposition and give your teammates the advantage. This is just the set for the discerning Inkling looking for something spicy!

Behold the Berry Splattershot Pro! Don’t let the tasty paint job fool ya! This remixed Splattershot Pro includes Suction Bombs and Bomb Rush to help punch through the opponent’s defenses, letting you finish things off with the great firing range of the main.

The new and improved Fresh Squiffer is a Classic Squiffer retooled to allow a different approach. Pairing Suction Bombs with the Squiffer makes it even easier to get the upper hand in battle, and you can quickly turn the tables on foes with the Kraken! Definitely not a set for squids who are afraid to get their tentacles dirty!

The Permanent Inkbrush is a set remixed by Sheldon to include the high-powered sub of Splat Bombs while retaining the great mobility of earlier models. Recommended for aggressive Inklings with an uncontrollable urge to wreak maximum havoc. Watch out for the Kraken special!

No word on how much in game coin these new weapons will cost, but they should do a good job of shaking things up.
