Splatoon 3 Reveals Its Themed Nintendo Switch OLED Hardware and a New Multiplayer Map

In anticipation of the release of Splatoon 3, Nintendo has revealed the upcoming game’s themed Nintendo Switch OLED hardware releasing on August 26th and we see a new Splatoon 3 multiplayer map!

If you’re a fan of getting your hands on unique-looking Joy-Cons, the special edition controllers feature Splatoon-themed artwork with two-tone colouration that blends blue to purple on one Joy-Con controller and yellow to green on the other with a white slightly translucent look on the back of each. Without the Joy-Cons the OLED model features more Splatoon artwork on a dark and grey console “canvas”, the Nintendo Switch Dock however is similar to the regular dock but features even more Splatoon artwork plus a “Splat” of sunny yellow paint on the front.

The Nintendo Switch OLED Splatoon 3 Edition is the first themed release since the OLED’s initial day and date release alongside Metroid Dread’s launch — it will cost you $360 USD which is about $10 USD more expensive than the regular white edition’s price tag. It isn’t the game’s only themed hardware release as Nintendo is also releasing the Splatoon 3 Pro Controller ($75 USD) and its carrying case ($25 USD) the same day the third main entry in the Splatoon series comes out in this coming September.

Alongside the news, the game’s Twitter account revealed a small glimpse at a brand-new multiplayer map called Mincemeat Metalworks. The map itself is described as being built from scrap metal with the in-universe purpose of creating more scrap metal in the post-apocalyptic setting of the upcoming game. Splatoon 3 was revealed during a Nintendo Direct presentation early last year and will feature a new single-player mode, the game’s four vs. four multiplayer mode, and the next evolution of the game’s co-op Salmon Run mode.

Splatoon 3 is set to shoot ink exclusively on Nintendo Switch on September 9th.
