Splatoon's Rainmaker ranked battle mode drops this weekend

Soak it in from Saturday morning.

Wii U-exclusive shooter Splatoon will add Rainmaker, a new ranked battle mode, this weekend.

UK fans will find the fresh mode unlocked from the morning of this Saturday, 15th August. Nintendo hasn't named a time, but has previously set new features live around 2am.

Rainmaker is a capture-the-flag style offering where you must take the Rainmaker item to your opponents' base to score.

Sounds easy, right? Well, here it is in action, as introduced by Splatoon's co-director Tsubasa Sakaguchi.

For more on the game's future, and to see what happened when Chris Bratt forced Sakaguchi to make sushi out of the very animals he helped turn into an adorable game, do watch the video below:
