Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Bundle With Joy-Con Color Coming to Walmart

Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Bundle With Joy-Con Color Coming to Walmart

Developer MixedBag has now outlined the release details - it'll arrive on 24th August in North America and Europe priced at $9.99 / €9.99 / £8.99.

"This exclusive Walmart bundle gives people who have been waiting to buy a Nintendo Switch a great value and incentive to get splatting", Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Doug Bowser said in a statement. "Accessories for the Nintendo Switch and Microsoft's Xbox One drove spending growth". On Thursday, Nintendo announced that Walmart will be the exclusive retail partner for the bundle in the U.S. - a bundle which includes a download code for Splatoon 2, a Splatoon-themed carrying case for the console and Joy-Con controllers in Neon Pink and Neon Green.

There's no word if this is a timed exclusive yet, but if you want this bundle then you'll have to head to Walmart on September 8th.

The Switch cabinet allows you to sit your Switch console in a perfectly angled position to play on a table (let's face it, the little Switch kickstand isn't always the most reliable piece of plastic) and charge it at the same time - a feature that's not normally possible considering the charging port is located on the bottom of the console. Its success was fuelled in part by new units coming into retail channels and the launch of Splatoon 2, which was July's best-selling game, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said.

The increase in price is due to the included bonuses. As you might expect, the bundle comes with a full copy of the highly acclaimed Splatoon 2, and will also include a Splatoon 2-themed carrying case. Amazingly, Nintendo achieved this result in spite of the fact that they do not report digital revenue and date to NPD, while other games on the list do.
