Someone turned Splatoon 3 into a light gun game

While a Splatoon 3 light gun may be a dream for some, one fan has made it a reality, building their own weapon replicas for use on the Nintendo Switch

Splatoon 3 light gun - a humanoid with purple tentacle hair stood in a crowd of similar-looking folks holding some headphones and looking sneaky.

Light gun games may be a thing of the past, but it’s hard to forget how magical they are. And one Splatoon 3 fan has combined the two to create the ultimate arcade version of the Nintendo’s hit Switch shooter.

In the video below, you can see them show off some of their gaming paraphernalia, before wielding a Splatoon 3 light gun – a bright yellow blaster outfitted with motion controls. They then jump into a game and show off their skills.

Take a look at the video below, and give me a shout if you can work out how they’re moving around. It’s my guess that someone else is doing the moving, while they do the shooting, though maybe I missed something. Either way, looks pretty cool.
