Splatoon 3 - Rollers

If you follow the Splatoon scene closely, you might already know how there have been ongoing requests for apartments to be added to the series.

In the trailers and footage of Splatoon 3 so far, players have spotted apartments in the new city 'Splatsville' - leading to theories the third entry may finally contain your own personal room with even more customisation options.

Now, in a new Squid Research Lab report (via Twitter), there's a reference to apartments, which has seemingly sent Inklings into a frenzy online:


As noted throughout the replies, the original Splatoon for Wii U contained a screen in it showing off an Inkling's room, which eventually led to requests for apartments.

Other fans responding to the same Nintendo tweet (above), have been quick to point out how the Japanese post for this latest lab report apparently makes no mention of the word apartments:

At the very least, this series of tweets from the Squid Research Lab shows off the fan favourite Splat Roller weapon:

Squid Research Lab here, rolling out a report on rollers! These versatile weapons can lay down a wide path of ink on the ground or fling it forward for a more traditional attack. Warning: do NOT paint your apartment with one. (A “friend” lost their security deposit that way.)

Let's take a look at the Splat Roller. This is an easy-handling roller that's a great introduction to the "rolling life." But make no mistake—it's plenty capable, especially if you can master both horizontal and vertical swings.

For the advanced user, behold the Dynamo Roller! This heavyweight weapon swings more slowly than other rollers but offers more inkpower. Horizontal and vertical swings practically blanket the area with ink, making it a truly formidable flinger! And roller. It's still a roller.
