It’s not a Switch Pro but it will. Just in time for the shooter launch in September, Nintendo is releasing a version of Splatoon 3-themed Switch OLED on August 26th. It’s going for $360, and if you haven’t already upgraded to the newer model, now might be a good time, if at least you can get one.
Special Edition Splatoon 3 The Switch features squid-themed art from the game on the back and two flashy Joy-Con controllers – one purple/blue and one yellow/green – each with their own game art and white underpads. It also comes with a graffiti art dock that includes more lightly traced artwork and a single splash of yellow paint in the bottom corner. They could all have gone out of their way with the squid stuff, but the low-key black and white outline of the main unit and dock really makes the Joy-Cons stand out. Only if you can buy them separately.
Meanwhile, a Splatoon 3Switch Pro controller ($75) and carrying case ($25) launch along with the game on September 9. I’m still better Splatoon 2 Pro Controller, but the rest of the package is a big stylistic upgrade over the previous Splatoon Package.
Faced with an ongoing cycle of Switch Pro rumors, Nintendo has revealed an OLED model last summer. Although it was a huge disappointment for the internet at the time, I bought one during its launch in the fall and it was instantly won over. The slightly larger screen size makes a huge difference in manual mode, and I am constantly amazed at the beauty of the games Xenoblade Chronicles See deeper, more vibrant colours.
Fortunately, despite the constant shortage of components, Switch OLEDs seem to be easier to obtain these days (at the time of writing, both are currently available at many retailers). Time will tell if the same can be said about Splatoon 3 A special edition copy.
