Update: Nintendo has since confirmed that 'Ultra Stamp' is indeed the English-language name for the weapon.


Original Article: It would appear that Nintendo still has the odd trick or two up its sleeve when it comes to Splatoon 2, as a brand new update for the game has been revealed alongside one of the most fun-looking special weapons we've seen so far.

On 6th/7th November (depending on your region), the game will be updated to Version 4.2.0, introducing a brand new special weapon. Directly translated from Japanese (thanks, JapaneseNintendo), the weapon is called the 'Ultra Stamp', although this name could be slightly different in the official English-language versions of the game. You can see some images of it below.

Thankfully, the official Japanese Splatoon Twitter account has posted a video of the weapon in action, revealing that you can repeatedly whack the ground while moving forward, protecting you from incoming attacks and stomping on any poor Inkling that gets in your way. You can also hit enemies in the air by pressing the 'ZR' button, and pressing 'R' will fling it forwards to deal even more damage - although this does end its use.

Have you been keeping up with your Splatoon 2 gameplay? Will this new weapon be going to the very top of your most-wanted list? Let us know if you'll be checking it out with a comment below.
