The next Splatoon Splatfest kicks off this weekend, which will be an awesome Transformers event in North America and a little more generic in Europe. There'll also be a couple of new weapons to try out when it all goes down.

You can see the new weapons below, which include the coolest use of Bamboo in the history of mankind.

As you can see these are due to go live on 28th August at 7pm Pacific / 10pm Eastern in North America, which is a 3am UK / 4am CET European release on 29th August.

Are you planning to try these out in the upcoming Splatfest?
