The Foil Flingza is coming to Splatoon 2 tonight

Just in time for a stateside Splatfest

If you’re gearing up for this weekend’s U.S Splatfest, which will see teams battle it out on Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 over Sci-Fi vs Fantasy, then you ought to know there’s new tool on the horizon.

Today will see the Foil Flingza added to the arena-shooter. A variant on the Flingza roller weapon, the foil edition comes equipped with a Suction Bomb sub and Tenta Missile special. The weapon will go live this evening in the US, with Europe to follow early tomorrow morning.

The Sci-Fi vs Fantasy Splatfest, which sounds pretty damn divisive, begins tonight at 21:00 PT. Pearl is backing the lasers, androids and aliens, whereas Marina prefers to sit in the forest with pixies and wizards. Where does your allegiance lie?
