Not only that, but the Splatoon 3 Switch OLED dropped on August 26, 13 days before the release date of Splatoon 3.
A Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and Carrying Case will also be dropping for the new console, however they will not be releasing early.
Both the new controller and case will release on May 12 alongside Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom itself.
