The OLED Model Splatoon 3 Special Edition features a Joy-Con set with one blue & purple radiant color and the other a green and yellow gradient. The Switch dock has gray-ish white graffiti art with a splash of neon yellow paint.

Sold separately is the Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller ($74.99), featuring black, blue, and yellow paint splotches, and a carrying case ($24.99).

The Switch OLED Model originally released last fall. It features a larger (7 in) OLED display, an increased storage size of 64 GB, and enhanced audio features. Like the original Switch, it supports, handheld, docked, and tabletop modes.

Splatoon 3 features 4v4 arena battles as squads of squidlings armed with paint-spewing weapons face off to dominate the arena in their color. In addition to the popular team-based multiplayer, Splatoon 3 will also include a full single player campaign against the Octarians, and cooperative survival mode in Salmon Run.

The OLED Model Splatoon 3 Special Edition will release on August 26. Splatoon 3 and the Splatoon 3 Switch Pro Controller will release on September 9. The Splatoon series is rated E10+.
