Welcome Back to the West

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Check Out Splatoon 2's Vibrant New Switch Accessories

Though it keeps a relatively low profile, Splatoon was a big deal on Wii U. The game (Nintendo's first new IP in quite some time) managed to sell well over 4 million copies despite Wii U's miniature install base, a massive number for fresh intellectual property regardless of which company is selling. It only makes sense, then, that its upcoming sequel Splatoon 2 would win some extra love from Nintendo on Switch, and it looks as though Nintendo is planning just that.

In a tweet from Nintendo's official Japan Twitter account, it was revealed that a Splatoon 2 bundle is slated for Japan, complete with ink-shaded neon Joy-Cons, Splatoon stickers, and a Nintendo Switch console. The full extent of the Splatoon 2 goodies can be seen on Nintendo's official site.

Also on deck are a range of sold-separately accessories, including Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch carrying cases (I do still need a case beyond my current solution, a knit hat) as well as, surprisingly, an extremely vibrant version of the Switch Pro Controller. The high-end pad's two rubber grips have been re-colored pink and green to match the new Joy-Cons, making for quite the collection if someone were to invest in the entire set.

There's no word just yet whether or not the bundle and squid-ified accessories will reach the West, but there's likely a good chance - over 1.5 million of the original Splatoon's sales came from North America.
