Nintendo has announced a special limited-edition Splatoon 3 Switch OLED console. As you can see in the picture above, it has paint splats on it and Joy-Con in retina-burning colours. And it will launch on August 24th.
This means that it will be out before the game’s official release, which is on September 9th. So, if you’re particularly desperate to get paint-squirting, and doubly if you are after an OLED upgrade, this one is for you.
Just this week, Nintendo revealed a new multiplayer stage for Splatoon 3, called Mincemeat Metalworks. It looks like a big industrial warehouse.
Check out the most recent gameplay trailer for the game below:
The last game in the series, Splatoon 2, came out in 2017. In VideoGamer’s review of that game, Alice Bell said:
“It’s strange and well made, and it’ll tide you over a few hours, but the multiplayer is still the star. Though there were some connection problems over our time with the game, Splatoon 2 isn’t unstable, and you can enjoy a few rounds uninterrupted. The continual circulation of maps keeps everyone on their toes, occurring often enough to be interesting, but not so frequent that it becomes annoying. Despite imperfections, Splatoon 2 improves on the original, and although the motion controls aren’t an easy way to play, the Switch is a good home for it. Prepare to eat paint, punk.”
