CoroCoro, the Japanese manga magazine, will be offering some exclusive in-game Splatoon 2 gear to readers via a special download code with an upcoming issue. The 'Mecha Gear' is the result of a competition to design some new accessories for the online shooter, and as you can see from the pics, it's a green and reptilian take on a mech suit.

Nintendo will adapt this for the game, giving the design its own spin, but we very much like the look of that eyepiece and big, pointy mecha-claw.

This isn't the first time that contest-winning swag has worked its way into the game. The 'Traditional' and 'Moist Ghillie' sets both originated from a contest in gaming mag Famitsu.

The upcoming issue of CoroCoro with the code goes on sale on 25th April, and although there's no word on a western release, the previous contest-winning sets made their way over here, so we'd expect this to follow suit.

Like the look of this squid-based swag? What gear would you like to see added to Splatoon's wardrobe? Share your thoughts in the comments.
