If you’re hoping to get your turf war game face on in time for Splatoon 3, you’ll need the right equipment! Here’s the price and release date for the Splatoon 3 Edition Nintendo Switch OLED and Pro Controller!
With Splatoon 3 landing on Nintendo Switch within the next few months, it’s no surprise that Nintendo is promoting the game with numerous special edition items.
If you’re a Splatoon fan, you may be wanting to get your hands (or your tentacles) on the limited edition items.
Here’s everything we know about the Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch OLED, Pro Controller, and the Carrying Case, including price and release dates.
Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
Featuring blue and yellow grips, with ink splatters and Splatoon iconography, this Pro Controller is a must-have for any fans or newcomers to the series.
The Splatoon 3 Pro Controller is set to arrive alongside the release of the game, on September 9, 2022.
So, if you’re hoping to pick up a copy of Splatoon 3 (which we’re sure you are!) then you’ll be able to play the game using your brand new Pro Controller!
The Splatoon 3 Pro Controller will be selling at an RRP of $74.99, meaning it matches the price of other limited edition Pro Controllers.
Fans in the UK can pick it up for £64.99, with fans in Canada needing to spend $99.99.
Nintendo Switch Splatoon 3 Edition Carrying Case
If you’re traveling a lot with your console or looking to buy the Splatoon 3 Switch OLED, you’ll need a case to protect it. And thankfully, you can get the Splatoon 3 edition Carrying Case.
Just like the Pro Controller, the Splatoon 3 Edition Carrying Case is set to arrive with the launch of the game, on September 9, 2022.
Any inkling can get their suckers and tentacles on the Splatoon 3 Carrying Case for roughly $24.99.
For those in the UK, you’ll need to open your wallet and spend £19.99. And Canadian fans will need to part with around $25.99 for the carrying case.
Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch – OLED Model
Of course, the highlight of the limited edition items is none other than the Nintendo Switch OLED model.
This marks the first time a Nintendo Switch OLED has had a limited edition model. And, it definitely stands out. But don’t take our word for it, check out the trailer for the console below!
What Is Included in the Box?
But what do you get with your purchase of the console? Well, there are a few things included.
For starters, you’ll get the Nintendo Switch OLED console itself, with 64GB of internal storage. While some of the storage is taken up by the system, you can increase it with MicroSD cards.
Next, you’ll have the Joy-Cons. Currently, these Joy-Cons, in blue and yellow gradients, are exclusive to this bundle. You’ll also get the Joy-Con Grip, which is a simple accessory that turns your Joy-Cons into a more traditional controller.
Of course, you’ve then got your Dock to allow for playing on the TV, an adapter to plug into the aforementioned Dock, and an HDMI cable.
Unfortunately, the Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch OLED doesn’t come with a copy of the game. You’ll need to buy Splatoon 3 separately.
The Splatoon 3 Switch OLED is set to release on August 26, 2022.
This is earlier than the other limited edition items because it doesn’t come with a copy of the game.
So, if you’re looking at purchasing an OLED Nintendo Switch, now could be the best time. But you’ll need to wait before you can start battles of Turf War in Splatoon 3.
But how much will you be parting with to get the first special edition OLED Switch? Well, Nintendo is suggesting that retailers sell the console for $359.99, around $10 more than a standard Switch OLED model.
Those in the UK will need to hand over £319.99. And those in Canada, you’ll be spending roughly $459.99.
These items are likely to sell out really quickly, so you’ll need to find out how to pre-order the Splatoon 3 Edition Switch OLED and accessories.
Let’s hope that you can get your hands on your favorite Splatoon 3 Edition items. And hopefully, you can be ready to start splatting in September!
