Nintendo Announces Inkredible Splatoon Wii U Bundle


To be sold exclusively at Best Buy stores in North America and online beginning May 29th, Nintendo has revealed a special edition Wii U bundle for Splatoon.

A digital download code for Nintendo’s ink-blasting third-person shooter will be bundled up with a 32GB Deluxe Wii U console and a pre-installed copy of Nintendo Land for a retail price of $299.99.

Aside from the colorful, ink-splattered packaging, the Wii U console itself doesn’t appear to have a custom Splatoon paintjob or any other game-themed markings. That’s too bad, because a Wii U jazzed up with some squid and ink splats would have been pretty damn sweet. Not to mention even more enticing for someone like me who does not yet own a Wii U but is looking for a reason to finally buy in.
