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.

Nintendo Switch Is Back In Stock At Toys “R” Us

Nintendo Switch Is Back In Stock At Toys "R" Us

Nintendo Switch is back in stock at Toys “R” Us according to a tweet sent out by retailer yesterday morning. As you would expect, quantities will be limited from store-to-store, so you might want to call and check with your local Toys “R” Us before venturing out to the store itself and save yourself the time/gas money if they don’t have any in stock. In my personal experience, I saw 1 or 2 Gray Switch systems in stock at my local Best Buy a week or two ago, so that might be an option as well.
