Today Nintendo of America has announced that the highly sought after Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch bundle will be making it’s way to North America as a Wal Mart retail exclusive.
REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 17, 2017 – Walmart will be the exclusive retail partner for a new Nintendo Switch bundle that includes a download code for the Splatoon 2 game, a fresh carrying case and colorful new Joy-Con controllers in Neon Pink and Neon Green. The bundle will be available starting Sept. 8 at a suggested retail price of $379.99 and offers fans in North America their first chance to get their hands on that Joy-Con color combination.
“Consumers in Japan and Europe have already had a strong response to Splatoon 2bundles in their territories,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This exclusive Walmart bundle gives people who have been waiting to buy a Nintendo Switch a great value and incentive to get splatting.”
It’s good to see that Nintendo is confidant enough in Splatoon 2 to make it the first bundled game with the Nintendo Switch. However we can’t help but find it odd that Nintendo is deciding to only supply this at Wal Mart and not other retailers such as GameStop, Best Buy and Target. Hopefully this will be in plentiful stock for those who are looking to get their hands on one.
Also during this announcement, Nintendo has announced the next round for Splatoon 2’s Splatfest! Flight vs. Invisibility. It will be interesting to see which side comes out on top!

It’s really awesome to see Square Enix bringing more Dragon Quest goodness to the west! So far we do not know which versions of the game are being localized. The game just recently released for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS in Japan, with a Switch version in development. It’s safe to assume we will at least get the PlayStation 4 version, but let’s hope Square Enix will have some awesome news for Nintendo fans as well this fall!

It’s good to see that NIS is bringing more games to the Nintendo Switch in wake of the early pre-order numbers for Disgaea 5 being over one hundred thousand! It is also interesting to see that NIS America is going as far to delay the game in the US and Europe for PlayStation 4 and Vita so that all three versions can have a simultaneous release.
If you haven’t done so already check out our review of Disgaea 5 Complete for the Nintendo Switch here.
Gamesblog, a french publication has teased a brand new game titled Seasons of Heaven for the Nintendo Switch. Running on Unreal Engine 4 you take control of two characters and can switch between them… I get it! Check out this translated description.
“Nina and Ana are the children of the leader of a group of survivors. They learn to work in a new world, remembering every day that arrogance and omnipotence of Man were right … their planet. But her he passes before the end?
He tells … and this among other young Yann Asperger’s syndrome and his French bulldog Ani, Elise and Tim’s parents, James, Sarah, their son Thomas. Nico Augusto did you then visit the dark and Paradise.”
Hopefully, it’s not too long from now.
