Fresh new Splatoon 2 accesories and Switch bundle announced

by Daniel VuckovicMay 18, 2017

After the ARMS Direct this morning a singleplayer trailer for Splatoon 2 was shown off, as well as some of these fresh Nintendo Switch accessories for the game.

There will be a Neon Pink and Green set of Joy-Cons, a special Splatoon themed Pro Controller and Case for the Switch coming on the same day as the game. We’re still waiting to see if Nintendo Australia will be bringing them here as they were only shown on the UK stream, not the US one.

A Nintendo Switch bundle with Splatoon 2 was also announced, weirdly it doesn’t come with the Pink and Green neon Joy-Cons but the Blue and Red. At least not the European one, the Japanese bundle does.

    That is cool, nice of them to offer up the colours, or at least something similar to what people suggested from day one. Shame about the console bundle, not the lack of colours in the European one, just that they expect them to be on store shelves 🙂

    A neon pink/green console bundle would probably push me to finally buying a switch.

    EB games is already taking preorders for the splatoon pro controller, they also have a hefty $109.95 price tag on it!
    No sign of the other accessories, though 😕

    Oh, dayum. I instantly regret purchasing the vanilla Pro Controller (I always knew I would, but still…), and Nintendo are gonna send me broke with all these new Joy-Con colours. I just hope that they don’t release the colours in reverse as well. Have mercy on my wallet, Nintendo. 🙏🏻

      ” I instantly regret purchasing the vanilla Pro Controller”

      I wouldn’t “regret” it, dude. At least you will have a nicer controller for P2 to use, joycons suck in comparison (mine only get used when using my console in handheld mode or in tabletop mode when I’m away from home)

      “Nintendo are gonna send me broke”

      That’s their plan!!! A very effective plan too, because so far they have managed to get me to order at least one of most official/licensed Switch accessories (with exception of travel cases)
      Then add in Amiibo and say goodbye, as Nintendo says hello to your remaining bank balance!!! Lol

      bless Nintendo and their little cotton socks

        I already have enough Joy-Cons, and I have a grip for each pair. I have two Neon Reds and Blues, and then there are the Yellows coming out in a couple of weeks (that I won’t be able to resist; I would have bought those instead if they were available at launch).

        I have a sinking feeling that I’ll have more Joy-Con than I know what to do with by the end of the Switch’s lifespan. =P
