Nintendo special edition models for its big games and Splatoon 3 will be no different. A very colorful version of the Switch OLED will be available on August 26, a few weeks before the game arrives. This version of the console costs $360-$10 more than the regular OLED. Pre-orders are now open.

The main body has gray graphics of the game on the back, but it’s the Joy-Cons that really make this special version shine. The left has a blue and purple scheme and the right Joy-Con has a yellow and green gradient. Both Joy-Cons have squid style illustrations and a white design on the back. I hope they will be available separately someday. The console also comes with a white Splatoon 3-centric dock, with a similar art style and a splash of yellow ink.

Unfortunately Nintendo isn’t throwing a copy of the game as a bonus – you have to buy it Splatoon 3 individual. The company will also release a $75 Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (with similar art and blue and yellow grips) on the day the game comes out, as well as a $25 themed carrying case.

Nintendo last year and so far there haven’t been many variants of it. This one could be ideal for Splatoon fans who prefer to play in handheld mode and haven’t found a Switch OLED yet. It’s not clear how many units of the special edition Nintendo plans to make, though, so it might not be easy to pin down.
