Splatoon 2 has been serving up weekly updates and/or events so far, and that's set to continue this week. The coming weekend will bring us one of the quirkiest new items in the Switch sequel - the Splat Brella.

It's the first of its type in the game, and the Japanese account's tweet has a few nice shots of the weapon(?) in action.

Going by when new items are typically unlocked, we expect this one to go live early/late evening today (11th August) in North America, and in the early hours of the morning (12th August) in Europe.

We're looking forward to a weekend of Splatoon 2 x Singin' in the Rain.
