A new Splatoon video shown off on Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube channel shows off several upcoming features for Wii U’s multiplayer shooter. Most prominent is a mini-gun shooting out Ink from a very formally dressed inklette.¬†Another Inkling uses a paint bucket to splash upwards at an enemy. And the final shot is of the Rainmaker weapon that works similar to Inkzooka, shooting out a large tornado of ink towards enemies.

Most of the action takes place in Blackbelly Skatepark although what appears to be a new map can be glimpsed. Sadly the trailer is only for Japan currently and with no date, though the content is sure to hit West at some point. You can view everything in the video below.
