Splatoon 3 themed Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) coming in August

On Aug. 26, a special edition Splatoon 3 themed Nintendo Switch – OLED Model system will be available in stores featuring design inspiration from the new Splatoon 3 game (sold separately). Adorned with splashy, squid-tastic images straight out of Splatsville, the Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Special Edition includes a set of one blue and one yellow gradient Joy-Con controllers with white underbellies and a white, graffiti-themed Nintendo Switch dock. To see the system in action, check out the trailer on Nintendo’s YouTube channel.

The Splatoon 3 game launches for Nintendo Switch on Sept. 9 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Also available on Sept. 9 is the Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, featuring striking colors and images fit for Inklings and Octolings alike, at a suggested retail price of $74.99, and the Nintendo Switch Splatoon 3 Edition Carrying Case at a suggested retail price of $24.99. Whether you’re engaging in an online Turf War at home, or playing Story Mode on the go, these items will help ensure you’re slinging ink in style.

In the Splatoon 3 game, you’ll engage in chaotic 4-v-4 Turf War clashes across a mix of new and returning stages, where teams face off to cover the most ground in their ink to win, and discover features, weapons and the trendiest gear this side of the sun. Splatoon 3 also features a single-player campaign and the next iteration of the co-op Salmon Run mode. Join Agent 3 in the single-player story mode for a fight against the unruly Octarians and discover the secrets of a mysterious place called Alterna and the Fuzzy Ooze. When diving into Salmon Run, you’ll ink up with teammates to fend off waves of dangerous Salmonid bosses, some of which are colossal in size!

Nintendo Switch – OLED Model features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage, a portion of which is reserved for use by the system, and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode. The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model system can be played in three modes: TV mode, played on a TV while the system is docked; handheld mode, when the Joy-Con controllers are attached for portable play; and tabletop mode for on-the-go multiplayer gaming sessions. The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Special Edition will be available in stores at a suggested retail price of $359.99.

  1. Dang I really wanna preorder this but I don’t want to lose all of my Splatoon 2 data (wait can you save it in the cloud data I know all the other data from other switch games can be save) I wonder do you still keep the preloaded game on the console ,(I never did console data transfers before) I might not get the system I’m really after the pro controller and joycons anyway. Also did anybody really think we were getting switch pro when it’s barely been a year for oled launch

    1. You might wanna fact check this, but I’m pretty sure if you do a full system transfer it’ll bring your Splatoon progress over as well

  2. I recently got an OLED model and transfered all of my data from my OG Switch to this new one… Everything is as it was on my previous Switch (this is coming from someone who plays Splatoon pretty much every single day).

    Of course, all of the data is not available on my OG Switch.

    Hope this helps.
