The Splatoon 2 Starter Edition will launch on March 16th for the Nintendo Switch. This special bundle will include the full game, a 100-page strategy guide that includes two pages of stickers all for just the MSRP of $59.99. The same price of the original stand-alone game.
Splatoon 2 launched exclusively for Nintendo Switch last summer and, so far, has sold more than 4.9 million units worldwide. The action-filled game 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.
Also, keep your eyes peeled the amiboo release of two of the most popular new characters in Splatoon 2 Pearl and Marina. This talented duo forms the group “Off the Hook,” and has been burning up the Inkling music charts. The amiibo figures will launch in stores exclusively as part of a 2-pack set later this year.
