Nintendo Switch Getting New Splatoon 2 Bundle in September; Exclusive to Walmart

Nintendo Switch Getting New Splatoon 2 Bundle in September; Exclusive to Walmart

The Switch cabinet allows you to sit your Switch console in a perfectly angled position to play on a table (let's face it, the little Switch kickstand isn't always the most reliable piece of plastic) and charge it at the same time - a feature that's not normally possible considering the charging port is located on the bottom of the console.

The Splatoon 2-themed Nintendo Switch bundle will arrive in stores on September 8th, 2017, while Splatoon 2 on its own is available now. Piscatella said Switch and PS4 sales "accounted for most of the increase". "[That was] driven by new inventory released in support of the launch of Splatoon 2".

It was a good month elsewhere, too- Crash Bandicoot was second place, continuing its strong streak, while Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age debuted in a strong fourth place- actually, it, along with other games like Persona 5, Nier Automata, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Mass Effect Andromeda, and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD, have contributed to a 50% year on year growth for RPGs, NPD confirmed.

Both cases were rejected by Mr Justice O'Hara who said the ban did not violate the rights of gay and lesbian couples. Delivering his judgement, a judge said it was for the Stormont Assembly, and not a judge, to decide social policy.

Planned to retail for $379.99 United States dollars, the Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Edition Bundle will be available exclusively at Walmart stores.

If Nintendo Switch continues at its pace, it could help grow game-related revenues for the entire industry compared to 2016. Nintendo's decision to bring the bundle to the USA could also indicate that the company is manufacturing more Switch consoles, which is good news for anyone who's wanted to give the hybrid gaming device a try but has been unable to find the darned thing in stock anywhere.

You might want to wait a couple weeks because a pretty sweet Switch bundle is headed to Walmart. Not a word was said about Xbox One hardware in the NPD's report. "Performance of the Nintendo Switch continues to be the primary cause of the year-on-year gains".
