Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition announced for 26th August 2022
On Friday, 26th August, the Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition console will be released. The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition console features design inspiration from the upcoming Splatoon 3 for Nintendo Switch (sold separately), adorned with splashy, squid-tastic images straight out of Splatsville. It includes a set of one blue and one yellow gradient Joy-Con controllers with white undersides, and a white, graffiti-themed Nintendo Switch dock.
Splatoon 3 launches for Nintendo Switch on Friday, 9th September, and is now available for pre-order in Nintendo eShop. Also available on the same day is the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Splatoon 3 Edition, featuring striking colours and images fit for Inklings and Octolings alike, and the Nintendo Switch Carrying Case (Splatoon 3 Edition) & Screen Protector. Whether engaging in an online* Turf War from home, or playing Story Mode on the go, these items will help ensure slinging ink in style.
Players can face their opponents in chaotic 4-v-4 Turf War** across a mix of new and returning stages where teams face off to cover the most ground with their ink to win and discover features, weapons and the trendiest gear this side of the sun. Splatoon 3 also features a single-player campaign and the next iteration of the co-op Salmon Run mode. Join Agent 3 in the single-player story mode for a fight against the unruly Octarians and discover the secrets of a mysterious place called Alterna and the Fuzzy Ooze. When diving into Salmon Run, players can ink up with teammates** to fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses, some of which are colossal in size.
The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition console features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage***, and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode. Players can play on the TV and share the detachable Joy-Con controllers for right-out-of-the-box multiplayer fun. And just like both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, with Nintendo Switch – OLED Model, the system can be taken on the go to enjoy its play-anywhere versatility.
**Multiplayer requires one compatible controller per player. Additional controllers (sold separately) may be required.
***A portion of the internal storage is reserved for use by the system. Players can easily expand storage space using microSDXC cards up to 2TB (sold separately).
