Nintendo of America has announced that a Splatoon 2 console bundle for Nintendo Switch will at last arrive in North America on September 8. For $379.99 and exclusively at Wal-Mart locations, you get a digital code for Splatoon 2, a Splatoon-themed carry case for the Switch, and all the accouterments for the console itself including the Neon Green and Neon Pink Joy-Con controllers.
A similar Splatoon 2 bundle was already available in Europe and Japan, timed to the July 21 launch of the squid-acious sequel. For those who’ve already picked up a Switch but wanted the unique Joy-Cons, Nintendo’s press release hints at a possible stand-alone release. “The bundle…offers fans in North America their first chance to get their hands on that Joy-Con color combination,” it reads.
Today’s bundle announcement also coincides with the announcement of the next Splatfest. For those who already have a Switch and the game, the fest will be a battle between Flight and Invisibility. Voting begins today between these superpowers and the Splatfest takes place on September 1-2. The previous Splatfest was a battle of Mayonaise and Ketchup, with Mayo emerging the victor.
