Another returning gameplay element has been confirmed for the imminent Splatoon 2: re-rolling abilities.

As your gear’s secondary abilities are randomized once you obtain them, if you aren’t a fan you can re-roll. In the original game this was done by talking to the sea urchin Spyke, while in Splatoon 2 the task is performed by another sea urchin: “Spiky” (this could be localized differently). Apparently he’s quite the admirer of the former.

As seen in the screenshot above, re-rolling all three abilities costs 20,000 gold. Super Sea Snails will also be a currency option, but as of right now it’s unknown how to obtain them. Finally, with each re-roll you get Ability Fragments, which are a more specific way of adding abilities to gear once you collect enough of them.

Splatoon 2 will launch on Nintendo Switch sometime later this year. We’ll be sure to bring you more on the game as news is made available.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
