The first game to receive its own special version Switch OLED model is Splatoon 3. It includes a customized dock and Joy-Con controls that all reflect the game’s graffiti-style graphics along with a spray of ink.
The left Joy-Con is dark blue fading into violet, and the right is yellow merging into green, while the dock itself is white with yellow splatter. There is a Splatoon 3-themed Nintendo Switch OLED model that will go on sale on August 26 for $359.99 if you simply cannot wait to get your eyes on Splatoon 3 in September.
Fortunately, Nintendo has you prepared. It doesn’t include the game, but it does have unique Joy-Con controllers in the game’s colors of yellow and blue, as well as Splatoon graphics covering everything but the display.
