Splatoon Getting Eight New Weapons Next Week in Free Update

Nintendo seems to have no visible plans to stop supporting Splatoon. In a recent announcement for Splatoon‘s first birthday, Nintendo announced that another pack of eight free weapons will be coming to the surprisingly successful property on June 7. Like always, this weapon bundle will come for free to anyone who has already purchased the main game.

The weapon pack is titled Sheldon’s Pick Vol. 2, a followup to the previous volume which released in April. While the guns are technically new, they are generally remixed versions of already existing weapons with different subweapons.

This move is part of a broader celebration, including a new console bundle, amiibo, and clothing line. Check out the related Tumblr post below:
