Splatoon 3

In Splatoon 3, Sheldon once again relocated his shop, this time in Splatsville, and can be accessed there. He sells weapons from the previous games, as well as two new weapon types: the stringer and the splatana. Unlike the previous games, weapons are purchased with Sheldon Licenses instead of the traditional Cash. Weapons can be purchased with one license. However, if a player wishes to buy a weapon that does not match their current level, they can do so by paying three licenses. Players can press to test the selected weapon in the Test Range, similar to the previous games. Players can tilt to turn their Inkling or Octoling, and clicking this stick allows the player to see how the weapon looks on them, and pressing purchases the weapon. Pressing takes them to Crush Station, pressing takes them to Naut Couture, and pressing returns them to Splatsville. Pressing makes Sheldon give further information on the weapon.
