It isn’t exactly the first store I would like to for a squirt gun or any kind of toy beyond a video game, but apparently, Nintendo has made a rather weird decision as far as marketing for Splatoon 2 goes. You’ll soon be able to purchase Splatoon squirt gun at Gamestop.
The retail chain will now be selling a pair of squirt guns that are designed to look just like the Splattershot Blaster and the Mini Splattershot weapons from Jakks Pacific. Both come with goggles so you don’t get anything in the eyes, and for good reason, as these particular guns will shoot colored “ink” water. It isn’t too clear how much dye you’ll need to buy, or if the dye is sold seperately, but basically, it’s a fun way to shoot your friends with what will probably be an easy-to-wash substance. You don’t need to use the dye, they work like regular squirt guns without it anyway, as you’re buying what is basically a super-soaker designed to look like a Nintendo toy.
Both will be available for purchase starting on July 4. The Mini Splattershot is $15 and the Blaster is $30. If we get our hands on them, we’ll review them for you!
