Splatoon 2 Starter Edition, Pearl and Marina Amiibo Announced

Nintendo has announced a new “Starter Edition” for Splatoon 2.

The new version of the game comes with a copy of the game, a 100-page “Splategy Guide,” and two sheets of stickers. A release is set for March 16th in North America, and the price is set for $59.99.

Alongside the starter edition is the news that two new Splatoon 2 amiibo are coming – for both Pearl and Marina. The pair of amiibo will be sold exclusively as a set later this year.

Splatoon 2 is now available for the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough written and video review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).

    Splategy Guide? At least it’s creative milk. Then you read about the two sticker sheets.

    Only chocolate waifus are saving us from the trap troops

    I hate Nintendo, but I need my chocolate goddess!

  • Shattno

    I wish they would release a cheaper version with just singleplayer, I don’t want to pay for a multiplayer mode I’ll never use…

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Didn’t they do the same for BotW? I’d prefer GOTY editions since Nintendo treats price drops like the plague but this is alright too for new players. I wonder if they’ll try to squeeze more out of Arms.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    The singleplayer isn’t anything special honestly, a fun sideshow but not much more. Fair enough if you aren’t into the multiplayer though.

  • Shattno

    I totally understand that, I played the singleplayer for the first game, and I enjoyed it, so I just want some more of the same. I’ll probably just end up waiting a couple of years until it drops in price.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I liked it too, but it could be so much more.

  • Shattno

    True, true.

  • sanic

    Huh I like the gremlin amiibo.

  • Maria Maasaa

    Fucking want those amiibos

    Chocolate indeed!

    As long as they have diverse ass and boob sizes it’s all good.
