Splat Brella Coming to Splatoon 2’s Multiplayer

Nintendo announces a new defensive weapon for Splatoon 2's multiplayer.

Nintendo has announced via their UK Twitter account that the Splat Brella, a weapon that was previously exclusive to Splatoon 2‘s single-player campaign, is making its way to the multiplayer component of the game August 12. The weapon comes with the Sprinkler as its sub and the Ink Storm as its Special.

The Splat Brella is unique in that it is primarily a defensive weapon that allows players to shield themselves from the front when the weapon is open. If kept open, the Splat Brella will launch ahead of the player, inking a path and giving the player cover as they move in to clash with the opposition at close range. New weapons tend to be popular items in Splatoon 2, so expect to see nothing but umbrellas gliding across the maps for a while as players try the Splat Brella for themselves.
