Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Bundle Announced For North America

Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Bundle

Nintendo has announced a Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch bundle for North America. The bundle was previously available in Japan & Europe, but until now it hadn’t been confirmed to be coming to North America. The Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch bundle will be available starting on September 8th, but there’s a catch.

It seems that Nintendo has decided to make the bundle exclusive to Walmart. In addition to the Switch system, the bundle will include a digital copy of Splatoon 2, a carrying case, and the green & pink Splatoon 2 themed Joy-Con controllers. If you’re interested in picking one up, the price is $379.99 (about $80 more than the standard Switch SKU). So you’re basically getting the game and carrying case for free, since pairs of Joy-Con controllers retail for $79.99 by themselves.

Here’s a couple images Nintendo released of the bundle.

Iron Harvest – Screenshots, Artwork, Details, & GamesCom 2017 Trailer

King Art Games has released some screenshots, artwork, details, and a trailer for their upcoming real-time strategy game Iron Harvest. The game is set in an alternate-reality version of the 1920’s where mankind has invented giant mechs. In the game’s world these inventions were used as weapons of war but now are used by farmers in their everyday lives.

Iron Harvest will feature a dynamic story with sandbox elements where you have to figure out how to complete the challenges of the game on your own. Combat will make use of a cover system as well as dynamic destruction. The cover system is automatic, but various types of cover will be more or less effective depending on the enemies you’re fighting against. For example, a small wall might not be the best choice for cover against a giant mech.

The game’s “civilizations” are referred to as factions and so far, three have been announced. These factions are the Saxony Empire, the Polania Republic, & Rusviet, which seem to draw some real-world inspirations from Germany, Poland, & Russia respectively.

Here’s some artwork & screenshots of Iron Harvest as well as a teaser trailer that is set to be shown at GamesCom 2017. Iron Harvest is planned to be released sometime in 2019 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
