Nintendo Switch Online Members Will get Exclusive Splatoon 2 Gear

I'm a Squid now.

The Nintendo Switch Online service, which is set to launch worldwide tomorrow on September 18, has some exclusive in-game rewards on offer. Those who purchase the longest membership plan will be granted some brand new Splatoon 2 items.

The new Splatoon 2 gear items, both of which you can see just below, are exclusive items for those who purchase a 12 month subscription plan for Nintendo Switch Online. This can either be the standard 12 month subscription plan ($19.99), or the 12 month family subscription plan ($34.99), in which case all eight family members would get a code for the exclusive gear.

While the Nintendo Switch Online service starts tomorrow on September 18, you won't actually receive the download code for the exclusive new Splatoon 2 gear until "early October", per the announcement from Nintendo just above.

Nintendo Switch Online launches tomorrow for all Switch consoles, and comes in membership plans of one month, three months, and twelve months. For a complete explaination as to what the new service actually entails, head over to our Nintendo Switch Online guide.
