Nintendo has announced that Splatoon will receive software update version 2.7.0 early next week.
That will see online service bcome unavailable a few hours beforehand, with the update introducing Sheldon’s Picks Volume 1 which was shown in March’s Nintendo Direct.
The new weapons that it will add include the Wasabi Splattershot, Berry Splattershot Pro and Permanent Inkbrush.
“The Ver. 2.7.0 Update will be released on the evening of April 12th. Hey, that’s next week! As usual, check out here for the full deets of what’s included,” the Squid Research Lab scribes.
“In preparation for this update, the Splatoon server will be under maintenance from 4:50pm PT – 6pm PT on April 12, and during this time, Splatoon’s online services will be unavailable. Also coming the evening of April 12 at 7pm PT are eight weapons, known as Sheldon’s Picks Vol. 1. Let’s take a sneak peek at a few of ’em before they become available in Ammo Knights!
“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 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!”
