Get excited squid kids because some awesome Splatoon 2 accessories have just been released! Unfortunately, you’re going to have a hard time getting your hands on a these if you live in the United States because these peripherals are currently only available in Japan and Europe. Hopefully they’ll make their way overseas and to other regions in the near future, but it doesn’t look like they’ll be hitting store shelves in North America any time soon.
The Splatoon 2 accessories are themed items that include the Splatoon 2 carrying case, the Splatoon 2 inspired Neon Green and Neon Pink Joy-Cons, and last but not least a Splatoon 2 Switch bundle!
The Splatoon 2 carrying case is primarily black with a patterned design, but also sports the two Neon Green and Neon Pink Splatoon 2 colors along the edges. The carrying case also comes with a screen protector to keep your Switch safe and looking as new as the day you bought it.
They Neon Green and Neon Pink Joy-Cons are the same colors featured on the outside of the carrying case, which makes this a killer duo to have. They were originally slated for release in “Autumn 2017” but suddenly had their release dates pushed forward to July 28th, only a week after Splatoon 2’s release on the Nintendo Switch, and are now being seen on store shelves in both Europe and Japan.

The Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch bundle is available in Japan, Europe, and North America, but unfortunately isn’t the same for all regions. The Neon Green and Neon Pink Joy-Cons will only be available in the Japan and European bundles. The United States bundles will only include the Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Cons. Bummer!
If you’re still dying to get your hands on these Joy-Cons like I am but live in the United States, hopefully you have a friend across the pond who is willing to snag them for you. Otherwise, you’re just going to have to wait and hope Nintendo of America brings them our way soon. We’re holding on to hope and
In the meantime, you can try and satisfy your Splatoon 2 peripheral craving by picking up the new Splatooon 2 Pro Controller which launched alongside the game on July 21st and is available in the United States.
