Game and DLC Bundle

Splatoon™ 2 and Splatoon™ 2: Octo Expansion Bundle

Loading

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. 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! Purchase this bundle to own both Splatoon 2 and the large-scale Octo Expansion DLC.

With Octo Expansion, you’ll gain access to a new single-player adventure spanning 80 missions. Playing the role of Agent 8, a character who awakens without her memories on a dark subway platform, you’ll navigate a mysterious underground test facility in a desperate battle to reach the surface of Inkopolis. Escape from these twisted depths, and you’ll finally be able to join multiplayer* matches as an Octoling!

In multiplayer battles, choose a weapon and strategy that fits your play style. You can 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.
