Splatoon 2 is already one of the key games of this Summer, and Nintendo is stepping up the seasonal theme with a special range of outfits and shoes to appear this coming weekend.

Items like these will pop up in the game from 11th to 16th August, so they shouldn't be far away. As mentioned above this sort of promotion is normally global, so we'll keep an eye out for confirmation it's coming to the West.

Some of the gear looks pretty neat, though this scribe will save some extra ink shots for anyone seen running around in flip-flops...
