Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch OLED: Accessories, prices and where to buy

Nintendo has launched an all-new Switch OLED model to coincide with the upcoming release of Splaton 3 and it looks almost as colorful as the game it’s based on and it’s available for pre-order now.

The console features all the same specs as the original OLED with a bright 7-inch display and it’s also adorned with splashy squid-based images from the original game. It includes a set of degraded blue and yellow Joy-Con controllers with white undersides, as well as a white graffiti-themed Nintendo Switch dock.

In Splaton 3players will compete in teams in a family-friendly third-person shooter with a number of different game modes, including “Turf War”, which sees players compete in a 4v4 arena match to cover the most ground with their color ink.

The console is expected to hit stores on August 26, but the company has also announced that a Switch carrying case and pro controller are also expected to be released on the game’s release day, which is scheduled for September 9.
