Fans who don’t yet own the Splatoon 2 game are in for a splat-acular treat. The Splatoon 2 Starter Edition for the Nintendo Switch system is now available in stores!



The Splatoon 2 Starter Edition bundle is great for first-time Inklings! It contains the full game, a 100-page Splatoon 2 strategy guide to help equip you with skills to climb the competitive ranks, and two sheets of Splatoon stickers.


Splatoon 2 is an action-filled game that pits teams of Inklings against each other in a variety of fun and messy modes. Since launch, Nintendo has consistently rolled out new content for the game, including recurring fan-favorite competitions called Splatfests, a new battle mode, as well as new gear and stages, like the just-announced Dark Tetra Dualies weapon and basketball-arena-themed Goby Arena stage.


Ready for more amaz-ink news? Pearl and Marina, two of the most popular new characters in Splatoon 2, are getting their own amiibo figures! Fans love this talented duo for their unique futuristic sound, but they’re also making quite the name for themselves as the broadcasters of Inkopolis News and Splatfest events. The amiibo figures will launch in stores on July 13, 2018 exclusively as part of a 2-pack set.


The Splatoon 2 Starter Pack is available now for the Nintendo Switch system. For more information about the game, you can visit the official site.
