Today we are getting our first good look at the new Nintendo Switch console known as the OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition. While technically just a themed version of the latest hybrid machine from the brand, the new Nintendo Switch console will be splashing down come early August just before the matching Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and Nintendo Switch Splatoon 3 Edition Carrying Case. Head below for a closer look at everything.
New Nintendo Switch console – OLED Model Splatoon 3 Edition
We know Nintendo’s new squid-based shooter, Splatoon 3, is set for release on September 9, 2022 after a new gameplay trailer hit back in April (pre-orders are now live on Splatoon 3). But it looks like Nintendo will be celebrating the launch of the latest entry in the Splatoon series with a new Nintendo Switch console and accessories as well.
The new machine is adorned with Splatoon 3 iconography alongside multi-color purple/blue and green/yellow Joy-Con flanking either side and a white, ink-splattered dock. This is essentially the latest Nintendo Switch OLED hybrid console with a fresh coat of paint.
