Splatoon Splattershot Blaster Spits Real-Life 'Ink'

Kids (and squids) can soon fire away with replica blasters from Nintendo's cute and squishy shooter.


Life-sized, functional Splatoon Splattershot blasters will be coming soon from Jakks Pacific, as announced at ToyFair 2017.

The blasters shoot an actual ink-like substance made from water-based materials. These inks come in a variety of colors such as blue, green, orange, and red. It was stated that the ink is kid-friendly and is easy to clean out of clothes, walls, or others belongings that you don’t want splattered with ink. The idea is that fans of the game will be able to have their own laser tag like Splatoon battles with friends and family.

The Splattershot blaster will cost you $29.99. There is also a quickshot blaster, very similar in function and concept to the Splattershot, though much smaller, that costs $14.99. The blasters are a part of the World of Nintendo toy line and are expected to be available for purchase this fall.

Nintendo is preparing to release Splatoon 2 as part of its Nintendo Switch launch window line-up. Check out some footage below.
