Splatoon 2 Starter Edition launches March 16; Pearl and Marina “Off the Hook” amiibo coming later this year

Fans who don’t yet own the Splatoon
2
game are in for a splat-acular treat. On March 16, the Splatoon
2
Starter
Edition
will launch in stores. The special bundle of the hit Nintendo
Switch
game includes the full game, a 100-page Splatoon 2
strategy guide to equip you with skills to climb the competitive ranks
and two sheets of Splatoon stickers, all at a suggested retail
price of only $59.99. That’s the same price as the stand-alone game, so
this new Starter Edition adds even more value.

Splatoon 2 launched exclusively for Nintendo Switch last summer
and, so far, has sold more than 4.9 million units worldwide. The
action-filled game pits teams of Inklings against each other in a
variety of fun and messy modes. Since launch, Nintendo has consistently
rolled out new content for the game, including recurring fan-favorite
competitions called Splatfests, a new battle mode, as well as new gear
and stages, like the just-announced Dark Tetra Dualies weapon and
basketball-arena-themed Goby Arena stage.

In addition to this amaz-ink news, Pearl
and Marina,
two of the most popular new characters in Splatoon 2, are getting
their own amiibo figures.
This talented duo forms the group “Off the Hook,” and has been burning
up the Inkling music charts. Fans love them for their unique futuristic
sound, but they’re also making quite the name for themselves as the
broadcasters of Inkopolis News and Splatfest events! The amiibo figures
will launch in stores exclusively as part of a 2-pack set later this
year.
