With Splatoon’s latest software update to version 2.1.0 going live earlier today, Callie and Marie appeared to have caused some confusion once players were back online. The squid sisters accidentally announced the arrival of some new gear on their news update, which Nintendo later retracted on their UK Twitter account and reassured fans that it was a mistake.
The #Splatoon servers are back up, but unfortunately Callie and Marie were misinformed that it included new gear. Sorry for any confusion!

There had been no plans for any new gear or weapons in this update, as it was purely to fix some of the previous glitches. There has been changes to the stage layouts for the Turf War version of Camp Triggerfish and all versions of Arowana Mall along with other bug fixes. You can check out further details of version 2.1.0 here. Hopefully the next update will bring even more weapons!
