The new stage shown is called “Eeltail Alley” and the new weapon is known as the “stringer”, a bow-shaped weapon type that enables you to sling ink sideways and vertically. A “spider tank” special weapon of sorts and a grappling hook special are also shown.

In other Splatoon news, the Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion DLC is also now part of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack.
