North America Getting Splatoon 2 Pro Controller

Last month both Nintendo of  Japan and Europe announced that a special edition Splatoon 2 Pro Controller would be coming to the Nintendo Switch alongside the game. For some reason, Nintendo of America didn’t confirm a stateside release – until today! Announced via its Twitter account, NOA confirmed we’ll be receiving this multi-colored Pro Controller on July 21.



Most retailers haven’t begun pre-ordering the new controller just yet (at least at the time of this writing). However, Walmart’s site does have it ready to order if you want to be sure to snag one. Just like anything else Nintendo-related, we expect this to go quickly and it could become difficult to find.
