The Game Party Japan 2016 event has just hosted the Japanese National Splatoon Championship, giving fans of the game the chance to test their skill against like-minded individuals. It also gave the truly dedicated the opportunity to show off their creative talents, as there was a booth which showcased fan-made versions of the weapons featured in the Wii U shooter.

Kotaku has put together a gallery of some of the most eye-catching designs, and seeing these excellent efforts has made us think - Nintendo should really team up with Nerf to create a special range of Splatoon-branded Super Soakers.
