To celebrate 2016, Nintendo has added a new weapon dubbed the Octobrush Nouveanu to Splatoon.
According to Splatoon’s Japanese Twitter account; the brush-like weapon will be available for free to everyone who owns a copy of the game and will be rolled out today at 05:00 AM ET.
突然だが、本日1月1日午後7時、新しいブキ「ホクサイ・ヒュー」が追加される。 新しい年に新しいブキで”塗り初め”としゃれこんではいかがだろうか？ サブは「スプラッシュボム」、スペシャルは「スーパーショット」だ。 pic.twitter.com/1niMhNBO63

What makes Octobrush Nouveanu different from the standard Octobrush is the fact that Octobrush Nouveanu boasts Splat Bomb as a Sub Weapon and Inkzooka as a Special Weapon. You can check out the images attached in the gallery below:
Looks like this is going to be the last update for the game as Nintendo previously stated that it will cease to roll out more updates starting from January 2016.
