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.

YES THIS WILL BE FUN
Looks great! I didn't think they were adding more specials after the Kensa update
Man, that looks deadly!
Oh I'm going to be enjoying this.
A new spin on the roller perhaps? Kinda like the opposite of the brush, focusing more on power, than speed. Either way it looks really cool.
@BladedKnight Miiverse stamps, the Biffler in ARMS, now this... Yeah, I can see that.
Interesting. I wonder what types of weapons they have cooked up to go with this special.
@Royalblues The previous one was supposedly the final new one so probably.
How do you color walls with that?!
It looks really colo tho.
These specials are tied to certain weapons?
Not exactly the most stealth of weapons! See that puppy from a mile away
Stamps are very popular in Japan generally, and indeed integral for some things.
Many official documents require your own personal stamp for instance.
The way that inkling is using that that stamp.
::blows off dust on ink saver + run speed up set::
Just need that Donkey Kong hammer music to go with it.
Also in Woolly World I think.
@Franklin @MH4 @BladedKnight
Don't forget Wii Sports Resort. That game started this whole stamp act.
@SMW Oh my gosh it’s the Stamp Act of the 2010’s 😂
Stamp Act II: Electric Boogaloo
Still prefer Splatoon 1... they simply couldn't replicate the gamepad correctly.
The most recent content update included the last set of new stages. However, as you can see, they’re still adding other forms of content. Splatfests will continue until July.
I don't give a damn.
Nintendo decided that Splatoon 2 players don't deserve cloud saves or dedicated servers because they're lying cowards. Fact of the matter is, peer-to-peer doesn't work at all for a game exactly like Splatoon 2.
Get your heads outta your kiesters and implement cloud saves (because this so-called "savescumming" problem is literally non-existent!) and dedicated servers (because peer-to-peer is absolute garbage for a game such as Splatoon 2, and has never, EVER worked, no matter what peer-to-peer apologists say, the disconnects are so rampant as to make it unplayable in comparison to dedicated servers, where it cuts down the disconnects to such a huge degree as to make it basically non-existent!) to Splatoon 2. Your pathetic lies and excuses about it aren't helping people see you in a positive light, especially since the blame here is 100% on the old geezers that are so out-of-touch at NoJ that they should be handed severe consequences.
