Three Best Splatoon 2 Deals

Three Best Splatoon 2 Deals is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

Splatoon 2 launches on July 21st and you can save money if you take advantage of the best Splatoon 2 deals now.

Splatoon 2 is the most important of this summer’s Nintendo Switch game releases because it is a showcase for what makes the console unique. You can play Turf War, a mode taken from Splatoon for Wii U, on your television or on the go using the Nintendo Switch Online service. Salmon Run supports local cooperative play, so that you can take on the game’s enemies with anyone that has the title and a Nintendo Switch of their own nearby. Splatoon 2 works with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Controllers and with motion control.

The best Splatoon 2 deals available let you experience everything that the game offers for less than you would pay for the game in the Nintendo eShop. It costs $59.99 without any savings. Use these Splatoon 2 deals to bring that price down.

10 Best 2017 Nintendo Switch Games Coming

Sonic Forces

Sonic Forces

Featuring three protagonists, Sonic Forces offers platforming and an all-new story when it arrives on video game consoles – including the Nintendo Switch – sometime soon.

This game is sort of a mystery. Sega says it launches worldwide in at the end of 2017. Other details, like how it will support Amiibo and the different play modes of the Nintendo Switch, are unclear too. Sonic Forces is one of two recently revealed Sonic games coming to Nintendo Switch. The other is Sonic Mania.

We do know that Sonic Forces lets gamers create their own characters. The title lets gamers choose one of seven different classes to customize their abilities. The developer promises hundreds of cosmetic items to make the add-on character look just the way you want them too as well.
