The company’s line will feature four blasters that will boast special features for fans and collectors, whilst bringing the Splatoon game to life.

"We’re thrilled to bring the blasters from Splatoon to life with these new innovative products," said Brian Quaglia Sr, co-owner and director of creative services at Edge Brands.
