Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch OLED: Accessories, price and more


Nintendo has launched a brand-new Switch OLED model, to coincide with the upcoming release of Splatoon 3. It looks almost as colourful as the game it’s based on, and it’s available to purchase now.

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

In Splatoon 3, players 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 four-vs-four arena match to cover the most ground with their coloured ink. In our hands-on preview, we praised its “broad appeal and high skill ceiling” that “encourages mobility and varying loadout composition”.

As well as a console, Nintendo has also launched a Switch carry case, and a pro controller is also planned to be released on the game’s release day, which is expected on 9 September.

The Splatoon 3 edition console features design inspiration from the upcoming game for Nintendo Switch, complete with colourful images “straight out of Splatsville” according to Nintendo’s website. It includes a set of one blue and one yellow gradient Joy-Con controllers with white undersides, and a white, graffiti-themed Nintendo Switch dock. There is also a limited edition console available from Base (£329.85, Base.com) and Studio (£329.99, Studio.com) but both are listed at £10 more than the recommended retail price. While this is based on iconography from the game, Splatoon 3 for the Nintendo Switch will be sold separately.
