Splatoon has had an impressive run on the Wii U since its 2015 launch, from its 'kid now / squid now' song becoming a bit of a meme to critical and public acclaim for its gameplay. There have also been lots of updates, new content and Splatfests of various kinds. An era is now sort of ending, though, with the last Splatfest due soon.
As a warm-up for that final online contest Nintendo of Europe has started a 25% discount on the eShop, which is available until 21st July. It's not a discount that'll paint the town red, as such, but it's welcome nevertheless.
As a reminder there's also been a recent update to support the new amiibo, along with some fixes and tweaks to the game. In addition a Callie and Marie course is due in the next 24 hours - at the time of writing - in Super Mario Maker.
There's plenty going on, then, and those at the Japan Expo in Paris on 8th July will also see the Callie and Marie live show that's proven so popular in Japan - Nintendo of Europe has shared a rehearsal video below.
Are you planning to grab Splatoon at a discount in Europe, or are you a veteran warming up for the final Splatfest?
O shizzle, it's getting real
But the game is like 30 euros at retail is it not? So you aren't really saving anything.
Cough cough 21st July cough cough
@ThomasBW84 "...which is available until 21st June." Might want to fix that one.
My only concern w/ buying this game now - we got it Day 1, just saying - is when do the servers go down? I know we can never know that, could be 3 days or 3 years, but there isn't much there offline. Great game, certainly top 3 w/ XCX and probably something else I can't think of at the moment.
And it's always nice to see a sale. Would that price stack w/ the 30% off My Nintneod discount? Half price is always nice.
the thing is.... its kinda too late to get splatoon right now since nx is coming... but you can still have hours of fun so yeah.... basically $45 in U.S. currency and thats not bad
@rjejr Might play some Splatoon with the wife this weekend. Or not, ya never know. XD Its a nice deal, inb4 its not enough behind the times nintendoomed oh ill just start drinking now.
@rjejr Ugh, hate it when I get those months wrong. The Splatoon My Nintendo discount isn't in the rewards any more, so I suspect this replaced that.
@ThomasBW84 I hate it when I try to tell you first post but I type so slow 4 people ninja me pointing it out. Forgot the monthly rewards changed, going on vacation end of 1 month to the next always messes me up w/ stuff. It's probably not too late for you to blame E3 lack of sleep.
@BLPs Read a few of your posts while I was away, kinda surprised you hadn't joined the 27 Club yet. Guess you still have a few more years to go. Like a 1/3 of your life actually. Man you are young and I am sooo old. Hope you put you world weariness to good use when you get older, big brother mentor type thing. If Brexit ever goes thru your entire country may need your help.
Ok time for lunch and Pokemon Go.
@rjejr This is where id put my Pokémon GO. IF I HAD ONE!!!!
I'm also a big brother, so all I miss is age. :/
Geez... I hate to see it go... It was fun while it lasted...
Splatoon is fantastic. Isn't it fantastic how fantastic Splatoon is?
@rjejr That's the thing that's troubling. Hardly any Nintendo IP goes on sale so soon. With the lack of a solid single player, or couch multiplayer. I wonder if this is a sign that the servers are gonna be coming down sooner rather than later. Then again it could be me being paranoid, and it means nothing...excuse me while I readjust my tin foil hat.
I paid £14 of Amazon
40% off at Hyper Japan next week
Won't "paint the town red” ie another disappointing discount that still leaves the game much more expensive than its available for new elsewhere.
@Nin10doh No such thing as paranoid when it comes to Ntinedo. They have a whole lot of making up to do w/ some sensible business decisions before I start taking them at their word or expecting them to do the right thing. $117 worth of SSB DLC after they said they weren't working on any DLC for SSB isn't soon forgotten. Splatoon and SMM being all free - except for things locked behind amiibo - has been nice though. I'm planning on a clean slate for NX, once, you know, they actually deem their potential customers worthy of telling us what it is.
See no reason why Nintendo would shut down the servers. People are still playing the game and there is no replacement until at least March next yr. Considering Nintendo have 1 game lined up for release until then, I think its safe to assume they wont be cutting themselves off even further. It would just deny them profits.....also it has been out just over a yr a lot less then smash and kart
