Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Coming in July

Featuring neon green and pink handles.

Nintendo has announced the Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller will be coming to North America.

In a post on Twitter, Nintendo of America revealed the neon pink and green controller, which will launch on July 21, the same day as Nintendo’s ink-based shooter. The Splatoon 2 Edition controller was previously announced in Japan and Europe during the Nintendo Direct for Arms last month.

Those looking to customize their Nintendo Switch control experience can also do so with a retro-inspired spin, as controller maker 8Bitdo recently released a firmware update to its controllers, adding Switch support to its line of classic Nintendo-style control pads.

Splatoon 2 will feature online voice chat, though peripheral maker Hori’s official Splatoon 2 headset offers a cool but complicated setup. For more on Nintendo’s upcoming multiplayer shooter, check out our Splatoon 2 hands-on preview, as well as this first look at the game’s single-player mode.
