Nintendo selling physical Splatoon 2 version with no game card in Japan
Splatoon is so crazy popular in Japan that Nintendo is doing a couple of weird things for the release of Splatoon 2 coming up.
Through the Japanese My Nintendo store (geo-blocked), the company will be selling a physical copy of Splatoon 2 – but without any game card. It’ll come with the same plastic case you’d expect to buy in stores but instead, contain a download code. Clearly for people who want the digital version but, still want something to put on their shelves.
The other crazy idea, Nintendo is selling the box that Splatoon 2 Bundle comes in. Just the box, no Switch, not controllers or game. Clearly, this one is for the completionists, the box will set you back around $5 if you’re really keen.
It’s unlikely Nintendo will do anything like this here, but would you buy a ‘physical’ copy of the game with a download code instead of a card? Let us know in the comments.
