Splatoon™ 2 - Starter EditionNintendo Switch
The squid kids called Inklings are back to splat more ink and claim more turf in this colorful and chaotic 4-on-4 action shooter.
This bundle is perfect for first-time Inklings; it contains the game, a detailed strategy guide which will help equip you with the knowledge you'll need to become the freshest squid on the battlefield, and two stylish sticker sheets.
Take Turf War battles on-the-go with the Nintendo Switch™ system, and use any of the console's portable play styles for intense local multiplayer* action. Even team up for 4-player co-op fun in Salmon Run! Dual wield the Splat Dualies or stick to mainstays like chargers and rollers, which have been remixed with additional strategic possibilities. As always, Turf War is the favored sport among Inklings, but they also dig ranked battles**, taking down Octarians in a robust single-player campaign, and battling enemy Salmonids in one dangerous part-time job! No matter which way you play, splat at home or on-the-go with Nintendo Switch. Staying fresh never felt so good.
