The Splatoon 3 Nintendo Direct revealed a slew of information about the upcoming sequel, including new gameplay modes, maps, and weapons. The latter of these, however, caught our attention, with both promising to make an impact on the battlefield when the game is released on September 9th.

Nintendo has released a new series of Japanese trailers showing these items at play in the real world, thanks to the clever marketing folks at the company.

The opening four sections are dedicated to showcasing a selection of the weapons that will be available in the game.

In an uchimizu context, the Slosher is reimagined, a youngster avoids incoming ink as his item becomes one of Splatoon 2's Brellas, and an artist transforms his studio into a battlefield with an Octobrush.

Our favorite archer is the one who transforms his bow into one of Splatoon 3's new weapons, the Tri-Stringer, which gives us some more gameplay shots of the long-range item in action alongside some of the best fun archery we've ever seen.

The first two trailers cover all of the new features, including snippets from the new musical trio Deep Cut and Salmon Run. The last one covers a typical friendly Splatoon game that's very competitive, very messy, and very colorful.

All of the trailers can be seen on Nintendo's Japanese YouTube channel, but the easiest place to spot them is in the Splatoon 3 playlist, which we've linked here.

Splatoon 3 will be released on Switch on September 9th, so get those pre-orders in now if you want to get ahead of the game:
