Splatoon unlocks the paint brush weapon tonight

Look for it at 7:00pm Pacific

Nintendo is adding a free weapon, the Inkbrush, to Splatoon today. It functions much like the rollers (#TeamRoller), but it’s smaller, more nimble. As for gear, it comes with the Sprinkler and Inkstrike. You’ll be able to find the weapon listed in the store after 7:00pm Pacific tonight.

I’ll want to test it out — how great is it that you can try weapons without spending coins? — but, I have to say, it’ll be tough to move away from my current main and its Kraken ability. So versatile!

Keep this stuff coming, Nintendo.

(Also, if you see a guy named Patrick wielding the Inkbrush this weekend, that’s probably our Patrick. He’s utterly obsessed with the thing and won’t shut up about it. Make sure to get him.)
