Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Bundle Is A Walmart Exclusive
Nintendo today announced the launch of a new bundle for its current-gen Switch console. Fans in the United States will finally be able to get their hands on neon pink and green Joy-Con controllers. They are a part of the Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 bundle that the company has announced today. This bundle is only going to be available from one retailer in the country.
Nintendo confirmed today that the Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 bundle will be available in the United States exclusively from Walmart. The bundle includes the console, the neon pink and green Joy-Con controllers, a carrying case, and a copy of Splatoon 2.
Nintendo is going to charge $379.99 for this bundle and it’s going to be available for purchase exclusively from Walmart starting September 8th. Those who already own a Nintendo Switch and just want to buy the colorful controllers appear to be out of luck, at least for now.
The company isn’t selling the neon pink and green Joy-Con controllers separately in the United States even though these accessories have been available for players in Japan and Europe ever since Splatoon 2 was released.
Nintendo’s press release does mention that this bundle provides fans in North America “their first chance to get their hands on that Joy-Con color combination.” This can be taken as a subtle indication that the colorful controllers might eventually be sold separately in the U.S.
