Splatoon. Let’s see how many times can I type Splatoon in one post without sounding like a crazy person.

First off, the Custom E-liter 3k Scope and Custom Range Blaster are both now available for Splatoon players. And here’s how they work.

The scope allows the player to zoom in on their target at an impressive range and the Range Blaster makes use of the sub weapon Splat Bombs and the Special is the Kraken.

Over in North America, the latest Splatfest when live last night. Splatoon players can choose cars or airplanes for travelling.

There isn’t a Splatoon Splatfest in Europe this weekend to go along with the new weapons, but voting for the next one is open.

Splatoon players can choose allegiance to either dogs or cats, which has been a previous choice for North American players. The next EU Splatfest will take place at 6pm UK and 7pm on October 17.

Finally, there is a rather interesting rumor making the round again that a Splatoon update with playable Octolings may be on the cards. The information was culled by dataminers and a curious update over on the Japanese website for the game. As Nintendo Life points out, take the rumor with a grain of salt for the time being.

Thanks, Nintendo Everything (1)(2)(3).

Number of times the word Splatoon was mentioned in this post: 14 if you include the headline.
