Recommend we use Pro Controller?

Psh, Split-Cons is the only way I play...

Have you considered the South African store?

Will be live at 11pm UK time, and also works out at 38 quid. It's also EU region so no different to the UK version.

Other advantage is all you need to do is go to mynintendo.com change your region and you can use your uk debit/credit card, make your purchase and then change your region back to UK. No messing about with creating additional accounts and having all your purchases spread across different accounts.

I've bought all my games this way. It's actually cheaper than buying physical.

It's showing as 669 Rand, and 3.3Gb on the South African eShop.

Also, I've been reading about the Switch app from various articles who've tried it and man, it sounds really bad. I'm not an online player and don't care for voice chat, but sucks for those that do.

Whaaaaaaaat
That's what League Battle does? I thought it was just a mini-ranking system within the ranking system. For people who wanted a Leaderboard to compete on or whatever. This is huge for us.

I can not wait for tomorrow. Everything is sounding cooler by the minute... By the slow minutes.

Real talk, split joy-cons aren't even worth using with the strap on. Makes 'em too bulky. They're the perfect size without anything extra*.

Everyone is blowing it out of proportion. its probably the best voice chat implementation out there including PC.

I don't want to derail the thread, but it absolutely is not, and I don't even care much for voice chat. You can do better on your phone anyway with Discord...

There was an entire rack of them on clearance at my Target this last fall. I got a couple for friends. I was surprised to see them jump in price.

Yeah... I like to play online but I generally do so without voice chat. I kind of want to try out the app just to see what it's like but based on impressions I'm glad I don't feel like I "need" it. Hoping they get it fixed and have online sorted out in general. Seems like a bummer that we don't have the option to just plug headphones into the Switch directly.

Thanks for the resource. I'm not putting myself on the list just yet (keeping my friends list under control for now so I can keep track of who everybody is) but as with Arms, I will PM people individually as I add them.

I don't intend to use the voice chat (don't like fussing with a headset), but for party lobbies I might put my device on speaker with the microphone muted, just to listen in. That's assuming the voice chat is widely adopted and used, and I doubt it will be.

Loving the online already. Hope they add more shops and elements over time as the hub world certainly has spaces which seem ready for things to pop up.

Shame you can't play salmon run at launch outside of private matches... Why is that a thing.

How is this supposed to work? I get "Unable to find the room". Maybe because I don't have Splatoon yet on my account.

Around these parts I only ever saw them at Gamestop. Never at Best Buy, Walmart, or Target.

Since I don't particularly frequent Gamestop, they disappeared before I knew it.

I generally don't like to pay MSRP for anything, so I waited it out.

I waited a bit too long I guess. Oh well.

Also, check out the shop in the App. Cool 3 Star stuff. Earlier today there was a Space Invader Cap. You can order one item on your phone and pick it up (after paying for it) in game.

Added myself to the spreadsheet. I played a lot of Splatoon 1's turf war, and so I'll be spending a majority of my time there again. Salmon Run and League battles I'd be down for, really can't wait to try those out.

That's because I closed it before you followed the link. If you have the App installed it should launch the App most likely. Don't know what it does on a PC though. I guess nothing.

For the first 3 days it’s available at all times, after that the times will vary such as every other day or so starting at 5pm

I clicked the linked from the phone where I have the app. And I got the message still in the browser. Maybe because you just closed it.
