Splatoon Devs Reveal In-Game Clothing Shop And Additional Artwork

The official Splatoon Twitter account has showcased yet another in-game store for the upcoming Wii U game. The new clothing store will join the weapon and headgear stores unveiled last week to compete for your hard-earned battle money and, of course, will be owned by another peculiar-looking store clerk. According to translations, the clothing store named “Sas au Bon” will have a range of unisex t-shirts and tops with specific perks attached to pump up your characters fighting skills.

If you were hoping to purchase a full outfit, though, you’ll be hopelessly searching as store clerk Echizon refuses to stock bottom halves. Presumably it’s because he can’t wear them as a blue jellyfish – his tentacles need the room. Echizon’s unique speech pattern can make him difficult to understand, yet despite this he’s still a forward-thinker and fashion guru in the field. You can check out his cool style in the artwork below.
