Splatfest #2 Themes Announced; Splatoon 2 Switch Bundle Coming

Nintendo has revealed the date and themes of the second Splatoon 2 Splatfest, which will pit Team Flight up against Team Invisibility in a battle of super powers. 

Following the previous hotly contested battle of mayonnaise versus ketchup, this next Splatfest is sure to draw the same amount of passion from fans. Although no specific times have been given yet, the event is slated to begin on September 1 and run for a complete 24 hours. Splatfest exclusive stage Shifty Station is confirmed to be returning to the stage rotation for the upcoming battle, yet will undergo alterations made for the newest installment. 

Simultaneous with this announcement, it was also revealed that a Splatoon 2 themed Nintendo Switch console bundle will be releasing exclusively to Walmart stores on September 8. This bundle will include the Switch console with special pink and green joycon controllers, a digital download code for Splatoon 2, as well as a console carrying case themed after the popular multiplayer title. Although currently sold out on pre-orders, the package is listed on Walmart’s product page at $379.96 MSRP.

Finally, it was announced today that the Classic Squiffer charger class weapon from the original game will be added to Splatoon 2 tomorrow in all regions. It will come as a set with a Point Sensor sub weapon and Ink Armor special.
