Splatoon players can now use another weapon in-game and it’s the Rapid Blaster Pro.

The weapon was made available in North America yesterday evening and during the wee hours this morning in the UK and Europe.

Nintendome has posted a video giving you a look at the new weapon and you can watch it below.

A large update to Splatoon will be released next week which includes various adjustments along with a few bug fixes.

The full patch notes are posted over on Nintendo Everything.

In the UK this evening, the latest Splatfest will also kick off, so log in at 6pm to participate. Players will need to choose allegiance to either dogs or cats.

The patch goes live on Tuesday evening in North America and early Wednesday morning in Europe.

Thanks, Nintendo Everything.
