Aussie Bargain Roundup: Splatoon 2 (Updated w/ Big W)

by Daniel VuckovicJuly 20, 2017

It’s nearly time for the next big Nintendo release on the Switch, Splatoon 2! The early winner on the cheapest price is Target and we can’t see it changing too much before release. Big W hasn’t really gone after the cheapest price for a while.

Because Splatoon is so fresh there’s also a lot of accessories to pick up as well. The Pro Controller as well, we can’t forget about that.

Splatoon 2 is out July 21st.

As always if you see a cheaper price let us know here in the comments, on Twitter or Facebook. Don’t panic! Our guides are prepared a couple of weeks before release, retailers usually don’t put the current catalogues on their website to the week of release. We’ll keep the guide updated with links so you can price match if you need to.

Japanese version note: Although the Switch is region free and the Japanese version will work on your console, it will only contain the Japanese language. It’s also likely if you play the Japanese version of the game you’ll be locked to their Splatfests and region as well. So don’t import it from Japan.

    On a side note, $79 for a Pro Controller from BigW, that’s bargain material right there.

    If anyone doesn’t have one and doesn’t want the pink/green combo, jump on that!

    To update this story here, from this morning’s observation it seems that both Big W and Target haven’t got the Splatoon Pro Controllers.

    Some Target stores DO have the Splatoon amiibo for $15, but we haven’t been able to find a store with the Smash ones. Will keep you updated if we hear more.
