New Splatoon Wii U Premium Pack Splatters Japan

Given that Splatoon has been an undeniable success for Nintendo, it isn’t particularly surprising to learn that there a new Splatoon Premium Pack will soon see release in Japan.

This will include a White 32GB Wii U, White Wii U GamePad, a pre-installed digital copy of Splatoon, and the new Callie and Marie amiibo.

When scanned, the amiibo will change Inkopolis Plaza into its Splatfest setup, where players can select a song for the Squid Sisters to perform. This will include new songs that have been added beyond those heard in the original soundtrack.

Even after a year since it first saw release in Japan, Splatoon continues to sell enough copies each week to see it comfortably remain in Media Create’s software sales chart. Last week it sold 5,038 copies, which carried the Wii U exclusive’s sales in Japan to an impressive 1,367,268 copies.

The new Splatoon Wii U Premium Pack will be priced at 39,960 yen, and will see release in Japan on July 7th.
