Splatoon 2

America gets Splatoon 2: Starter Edition

This includes a strategy guide for you budding Inklings.


With almost 5 million copies sold around the world already, Splatoon 2 has become one of the Switch's biggest games. Recently, Nintendo announced a double amiibo pack with the figurines of singers Marine and Pearl, coming later this year, plus a new competitive map, but there's also something else coming to North American fans - a new Starter Edition.

On March 16 Nintendo of America will release Splatoon 2: Starter Edition, containing the base game plus the official 100-page strategy guide for the game printed by Prima, as well as two sheets of stickers. The new package will be sold at the same suggested retail price of $59.99 USD, meaning that this is the real deal for newcomers.

This guide is also on sale in Europe, but only in English and French languages, so maybe we'll never see a Starter Edition of Splatoon 2 like that one. Do you think this is a good idea for newbies though?
