First, here’s the English reveal of the Splatoon 3 Ink Vac weapon. It shows a teal variant of it, but doesn’t specify a particular model. It is from the Dolphin brand. Said “company” has been a part of the series since the original Splatoon.

The Japanese Twitter account took things a step further. It actually shows how the Ink Vac weapon works in Splatoon 3. Initially, people see it without any enemy ink involved. In the second portion, it shows how it sucks up ink from two opponents’ attacks.

The last new weapon revealed is the Stringer bow.

Splatoon 3 will appear on the Nintendo Switch on September 9, 2022.
