Nintendo announces Wii U Splatoon Premium bundle

On May 1, 2015 by Aaron Meehan


With Nintendo’s, brand new shooter, Splatoon due out on May 29th, Nintendo of Europe has announced a Wii U Splatoon Premium Pack Bundle. Unfortunately, the bundle won’t be available until June 19th.

While it is odd that the bundle won’t be available on the same day, the game is released. The “inkredible bundle” (Nintendo of Europe’s words not mine) will contain a disc copy of Splatoon, a black premium Wii U console with 32GB of storage, and a black Wii U GamePad controller.

For those who don’t know much about Splatoon, Nintendo of Europe has provided the following description:

Splatoon is a wild new game from Nintendo that combines the creative and family-friendly fun Nintendo is known for with ink-spraying, turf-claiming action. Just like Mario Kart changed the way family and friends play racing games together, Splatoon welcomes players of all ages and skill levels to the world of the action shooter.

In the game, players take on the role of the Inklings, customisable characters that can transform into squids at the touch of a button. After splatting opponents and covering a level with colourful ink, players can transform into squids and swim quickly through their own ink or use it to take cover and hide from enemies.

Splatoon overflows with lots of ways to play: Teams of players from around the world will enjoy the frenetic four-on-four online “Turf War” mode, which tasks players to cover the most ground with their team’s ink while using the Wii U GamePad controller to see a top-down view of the map as it is covered in ink in real-time. Ranked Battle will bring together skilled players for intense online competition, while in “Battle Dojo,” players enjoy local one-on-one matches with friends. Splatoon also features a robust single-player campaign that cleverly teaches players how to splatter, swim, leap, hide and climb walls, all using ink while battling to thwart the nefarious Octarian army.

If giving a bundle pack based of a new IP wasn’t enough, Splatoon will have amiibo support. The game’s amiibo figures (at least three different Splatoon amiibo figures) will give users access to special challenge stage that will make it possible to earn special gear not found elsewhere in the game (let’s hope this special gear isn’t too over powered).

If you want more information on Splatoon, Nintendo will be hosting a new Nintendo Direct broadcast focusing solely on Splatoon on May 7th at 3PM (UK time).
