Today’s Splatoon Photo Reveals New Weapon – \”The Splaroller\”

The new screenshot released today via the official Japanese Twitter account for Splatoon has revealed a brand new weapon, known as \”The Splaroller\”. This new weapon’s main feature is the ability to paint surfaces whilst the player’s character moves forward. It may primarily be seen as a close-range only weapon, however it can be flicked to splat enemies who are at a mid-distance. Players will need to learn the perfect balance to master this weapon.

This weapon is called the ‘splaroller\’. Since its main feature is painting while moving forward, it’s easy to think of it as a close-range-only weapon, but by flicking it, you can hit enemies at a mid distance. Learning to balance painting and flicking is crucial for this weapon.

We have obtained footage of the Splaroller in action. Watching this should give you a good impression of what it’s like to move around while using this weapon.

Have you had a thought as to which kind of weapon will be your go to when you get Splatoon later this year?
