A tweet sent out by the Japanese Splatoon account early this morning introduced a new feature to a previously released weapon that should come in handy for those of you players looking forward to the new title on the Switch. When translated, it looks like the speed at which your character is running at will increase while using the roller. Simply holding down the ZR button will give players this ability.


The addition of speed might be a small one, but it will certainly be effective while battling it out against enemies.

Get ready, inklings, because Splatoon 2 is set to hit stores this summer!
