The paint-em-up from Nintendo is getting its themed Switch. Here’s when you can buy it and what accessories are included

Nintendo has launched a brand new Switch OLED model to coincide with the upcoming release of Splatoon 3 and it looks almost as colourful as the game it’s based on and it’s available to pre-order now.

The console features all the same specs as the original OLED with a bright 7-inch display and it’s also adorned with splashy, squid-based imagery from the original game. It includes a set of one blue and one yellow gradient Joy-Con controllers with white undersides, and a white, graffiti-themed Nintendo Switch dock as well.

I Splatoon 3, players will compete in teams in a family-friendly third-person shooter with a number of different game modes, including “Turf War”, which sees players compete in a 4-vs-4 arena match to cover the most ground with their coloured ink.

The console is expected to hit store shelves on 26 August but the company has also announced that a Switch carry case and pro controller are also planned to be released on the game’s release day, which is expected on 9 september.
