Nintendo has announced three different retail versions of Splatoon 2 for Japan. One of the download version comes with a game case, but no game card.


According to Nintendo, there is a standard Splatoon 2 package version, which comes with the game case and the game card. Then, there is the Splatoon 2 download version, which will look something like this and contain a download code:

There’s also a third type that Nintendo is calling “Splatoon 2 Game Card Free Version.” This comes in the same game case as the package version, but instead of a game card, it contains a download code:

Nintendo says this is recommended for players who don’t want the physical card, but do want the game case.


All three versions are priced the same in Japan: 6,458 yen (US$58).

Looking at the Japanese My Nintendo Store, none of the other Switch titles have this “Game Free Version.”

It’s an interesting decision and seems closer to the way PC games are released at retail.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
