Splatoon 2's new gear power abilities can turn the tide in battle

But the old ones are still there

Product: Splatoon 2 | Publisher: Nintendo
For: Switch
 
With every day that passes, Splatoon 2 gets that little bit closer, and on the game's official Twitter account today we've got some more insider looks. 
Splatoon 2 will see 14 gear powers, some already exist in the Splatoon universe but there are a few which don't. In a series of Tweets, we've got a bit of a look into some of these gear abilities - starting with 'Special Performance Up'. This gear ability increases the performance of your Special weapon, though the effect is different depending on what weapon you've got equipped.

Secondly, we'd got 'Sub-Performance Up'. As the name suggests, this time the gear affects the performance of your Sub weapon. Again, the performance of each sub-weapon will differ.

Next is 'Mitigating Opponent Ink Influence'. That may sound like a mouthful, but this one reduces the adverse effect when stepping on an opponent's ink. Though similar to the previous 'Safety Shoes', this gear power can be attached to an athlete or a fuku. 

Finally (for now) is 'Shortening the Resurrection Time'. As the name suggests, this gear power lets you resurrect faster than usual when you're knocked down without being able to defeat your opponent. 

There'll likely be more Tweets throughout the day, so I'll keep an eye on those.
