Remember how gear worked in Splatoon? You’d get hats, shirts and shoes with abilities on them that, say, gave you the ability to recover ink faster. The combination of perks often made some pieces of gear irreplaceable.
What if you could remove those abilities and customize that gear? That’s happening in Splatoon 2 with a new character named Murch. Murch can reset the abilities on any piece of gear to make it blank with open slots. Those abilities? They go to you.
From there, you’ll be able to tweak your own new gear with empty slots by collecting and applying abilities. Here’s Nintendo on that:
Once you collect enough of them you’ll be able to use them to fill an empty gear slot with a new ability. Theoretically, this means that utilising Murch’s services many times would allow you to mix and match additional gear abilities as you see fit! That would be incredible! Could this young man be even more talented than Spyke himself?
Get attached to those shoes!
That was one thing I didn’t like about Splatoon. I often had to wear an outfit I didn’t like the look of because I preferred its abilities. Now, I can keep the gear I want, reset its abilities and add good ones in order to… stay fresh!
Splatoon 2 launches for the Nintendo Switch on July 21, 2017.
