Nintendo has announced a new Switch OLED model based on the upcoming Splatoon 3 game. It has all the features of the Switch OLED system, such as the improved screen, the improved stand, 64 GB of internal storage and a dock that supports a LAN port. This system will launch separately from the game on August 26, 2022 and will cost $360 (that’s $10 more than Switch’s standard OLED models).
It features blue and yellow Splatoon 3-themed Joy-Con, with nice designs on the back of the system, as well as the dock. In addition, a new Splatoon 3 Pro controller and Splatoon 3 Edition Carrying Case will launch alongside the game on September 9, 2022.
To get your hands on any of these items, you’ll need to pre-order through several retailers. But where can you pre-order these items? Here’s what you need to know about the coming Splatoon 3 Switch on the OLED system and its accessories.
In addition to announcing the new system, Nintendo did mention that the new Switch OLED model will be available at select retailers, but pre-orders aren’t quite live yet. The company has not announced when pre-orders will be available, but they will likely go live relatively soon.
Normally, retailers like Best Buy, Target, GameStop, and Walmart have Nintendo products like this one, so they’ll likely open pre-orders for the new system soon. Pre-ordering the system is highly recommended as retailers usually don’t have extras available on launch day, which has been the case with many recent Nintendo Switch products including systems, amiibo, games and other accessories. One thing to note is that pre-orders often sell out quickly, so check back often to make sure you can get your hands on these products.
We’ll be monitoring pre-orders and will update this post when they go live, with links to each retailer’s site.

The Switch OLED system isn’t the only one splaton 3-related item launching this year. Nintendo will also be releasing a beautiful new blue-and-yellow Pro Controller after the game, along with an equally handy carrying case for your Switch system. Both will launch on September 9 and will likely be available to pre-order through the aforementioned retailers.
The Pro Controller costs $75, while the carrying case costs $25. Like the Switch OLED system, we’ll be monitoring pre-orders and updating this post when they’re available.
The game is slated for September 9, but pre-orders are already underway.
You can pre-order it digitally or physically from various retailers, along with Nintendo eShop.
