We’re a little over a month away from the release of Splatoon, Nintendo’s bold new title that has the potential to be its next great franchise. This game has already excited both gamers and critics with its use of territory style gameplay, and use of paint weapons to claim said territory. In true Nintendo style, this is something special.
Now though, it’s been revealed that a special Splatoon bundle is coming to commerate the release of the game. The bundle will be sold exclusively at Best Buy, for $300 USD. What’s in the bundle you ask? Well, aside from a Wii U and a copy of the game (via download code), you’ll also get a pre-installed copy of Nintendo Land. The game that actually helped launch the Wii U. Also, it gets a really cool box.
This is but the latest in a wide array of special Splatoon promotions. In the last Nintendo Direct, the company announced that the game would actually be getting its own Amiibo’s, which would unlock special content (like weapons and gear) that’ll only be available through the Amiibo’s themselves. They’ll come either singly, or in a special three-pack.
Nintendo clearly has its faith behind the game. We’ll see how well it does when Splatoon arrives May 29th.
