Got mine on pre order from Amazon for £32.99 using the various codes, £5 off voucher from a few months ago, £2 pre order off and then the glitch that takes another £10 off with the student10 code.
Any idea how much it will be on the e shop, and what the cheapest way to get credit is?

I thought of going Game via Quidco for extra reward points, but not sure how quickly they will have the digital up. I go on holiday Friday afternoon so want it downloaded

Mine's on pre-order from Very where I used a £20 account specific code to bring the price down to £25, they send them in the post a few times a year.

Only problem is i've got to go pick it up from a cornershop.

Use a locationless card like Revolut and buy from South African eshop (without buying eshop credit, just a straight purchase).

Arms cost me about £41 with this method.

damn, cheapest is still roughly £10 more than I'd like to pay for this game.

Got mine for £1.85 using the £40 my nan gave me for my birthday.

how are base for preorder not bothered about it comming early ,just on friday would do
Wii U version (physical) was routinely £25 at launch. I'd pay that again for this, but not £40 - as great a game as it is, still got too many other games competing for my attention, and as this is primarily online competition, I feel if you're going in for this, you gotta go all in.
I don't understand why they didn't release this for the Wii U, Has Nintendo killed off the Wii U.

I don't want to buy the switch just for this, I don't understand Nintendo's Game Plan.
For anyone looking for a console too Very have the Splatoon 2 bundle (digital download copy) available to order for delivery on release day Friday 21st July at £319.99 - that makes the game £40 when you take into account the console RRP of £279.99

Nintendo's game plan is to kill of the Wii U and make you buy a switch.

The Wii U is no longer supported, no more consoles are being produced and I don't think there are even any games in development for it. That is why Splatoon 2 isn't being released for the Wii U. If you want to play a Splatoon game on Wii U, it has to be the first one. It's still a really good game, although the community will dwindle quickly now Splatoon 2 is here.

If you're using Zelda as a frame of reference for Wii U / Switch releases, it was an exception. The reason for this is because it was developed for the Wii U and was meant to be released a couple of years ago but it was delayed several times which, along with the short Wii U console life because of it's lack of success, pushed completion close to the release window of the Switch. If it had not been originally designed for and showcased as a Wii U release I doubt Nintendo would have released a Wii U version.

This is how console generations work. Nintendo doesn't want to waste resources on 2 consoles, especially one considered a failure. They released a new console and all their effort has moved there.

The WiiU has been dead to Nintendo for a while now. Zelda was in a Twilight Princess situation so is an exception
Base mentions day one stock has sold out.

If you didn't notice last year and definitely this year Nintendo have abandoned the Wii u, as much as I loved mine it got traded for a switch.
I pre-ordered this with SimplyGames last month with their code SPLATOON5OFF making it £39.85
Edit: Just got an email saying it's been dispatched, might arrive tomorrow X)

Splatoon was £35-£40 from what I remember.....
Splatoon wasn't £25 at launch on Wii U, I remember perfectly trying to shop around for the best price and the cheapest I found was £34.99 from Shopto and I only got that price because I was a gold member. I still have the online receipt in my game case.

There was sub £25 deals at launch, you can still find some of them on here, i.e.

hotukdeals.com/dea…412

hotukdeals.com/dea…890

Even the Special Edition with an Amiibo was cheaper than Splatoon 2, and could be got for £35.
I stand corrected then, guess I was majorly ripped off by Shopto back then. I wish I used this site to it's fullest back then.

I nearly purchased this but I realised that the game is "pre-installed" on the system. Shame, would have purchased if it was a digital code
£43ish from TheGameCollection with free first class delivery. Base.com is showing as OOS.

Thanks mate. I did same for arms and mario kart 8 but both were priced at £43 and that code reduced to £33. Amazon still have splatoon at £50! Still cheaper with the code but was hoping they would price match base by now lol.
