Nintendo of Canada sent out the following

 

Walmart will be the exclusive retail partner for a new Nintendo Switch bundle that includes a download code for the Splatoon 2 game, a fresh carrying case and colourful new Joy-Con controllers in Neon Pink and Neon Green. The bundle will be available starting Sept. 8 at a suggested retail price of $499.99 and offers fans in North America their first chance to get their hands on that Joy-Con colour combination.

“Consumers in Japan and Europe have already had a strong response to Splatoon 2 bundles in their territories,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “This exclusive Walmart bundle gives people who have been waiting to buy a Nintendo Switch a great value and incentive to get splatting.”

Nintendo also announced the topic of its next Splatfest competition, which will run Sept. 1-2. Participants will pick a side to fight alongside in online Turf War battles by choosing which superpower they would prefer: flight or invisibility. Additional details about the Splatfest will be announced in the future.

The Splatfest is just one of many new elements in the slate of ongoing content updates and in-game events keeping Splatoon 2 fans engaged, with more and more players jumping into battle every day. There have already been more than 400 million online battles fought across the global player base, and after less than a month on store shelves, Splatoon 2 joins other global million-selling Nintendo Switch hits like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildMario Kart 8 Deluxe1-2-Switch and ARMS.

For additional details about Splatoon 2, visit http://splatoon.nintendo.com. Remember that Nintendo Switch features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/en_CA/switch.

This is an interesting choice for Nintendo to make, but not without precedent. We might see more retailer exclusive bundles soon.
