Nintendo has announced that a Special Edition Splatoon Wii U bundle will be made available for purchase on May 29.
The Special Edition Wii U bundle comes complete with a black 32 GB Wii U console, a pre-installed copy of Nintendo Land and a download code for Splatoon; all for the recommended retail price of $299. Sadly, the Splatoon Wii U bundle will only be available at Best Buy retailers and online stores.
“People who can’t wait to get their tentacles on Nintendo’s upcoming action p Edition Splatoon Deluxe Set launches exclusively in Best Buy stores across the country and online at BestBuy.com starting on May 29,” Nintendo wrote in a Press release.
Splatoon is an upcoming 4-v-4 online multiplayer shooter that pits players against each other in an ink-splattering turf war. The standalone software is due for release on May 29 in North America and Europe. In Australia and New Zealand the game hits store shelves a day later on May 30.
Splatoon will also be accompanied with Amiibo Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl and Inkling Squid. Tapping the Splatoon Amiibo onto your GamePad will unlock challenges that will allow you to earn exclusive gear for online multiplayer.
