HORI intends to ship several Splatoon 2-themed Switch accessories for the game’s big launch next month. Listings on Amazon show pouches, a “Splat Pack”, and a “Deluxe Splat Pack with Squid Trigger Grip”.
The pouches are pretty much what you’d expect. As for the Splat Pack, HORI is also putting in a pouch plus a game case with clip and two Splatoon 2 Analog Caps. We don’t have an image yet for the Deluxe Splat Pack yet, but it features the same items as the standard version as well as a “Squid Trigger Grip” that “adds mechanical triggers for more accurate splats”.
We’ve included photos of HORI’s Splatoon 2 Switch accessories below. You can order each of them here.

Today, Nintendo revealed via the official Splatoon Twitter account that a Splatoon-themed headset for the Switch will be released in Japan. Manufactured by video game accessory giant HORI, the headset will allow you to more easily use voice chat in Splatoon 2 (and other supported Switch games) via Nintendo’s smart phone app.
The headset comes with an adapter which you have to connect to both your smartphone and your Switch, which results in better quality audio input and output compared to a setup where you’re just using your smartphone and no headset. The headset will be released on July 21st for a price of 3480 Yen.
HORI Switch Pro Controller and arcade stick being released in July
Posted on 2 months ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 34 Comments | 0 Likes
Accessory maker HORI has revealed the release dates for two major additions to its Switch line-up: both the Pro Controller and the arcade stick will be released in July this year.
The arcade stick is pretty standard fare and will cost 16,178 Yen. The Pro Controller, which will cost 3,218 Yen, is a bit more interesting. It’s quite a bit cheaper than the official Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, but that comes at the cost of losing some key features, such as the gyro sensor, HD rumble and the NFC scanner. It’s also not a wireless controller. However, one notable feature is its d-pad. You will have the ability to choose between a traditional d-pad and four separate directional buttons, like on the Joy-Con. The one you’re not using can be detached and stored on the back of the controller.
Users reporting issues with HORI’s Licensed Premium Protective Filter for Switch

Unfortunately, we seem to have a situation on our hands with the HORI Licensed Premium Protective Filter made for Switch. At this point, we’d have to advise against purchasing the accessory.
It may not be entirely universal, but reviews on places such as Amazon are floating around that the protector peels off without prolonged use. Air bubbles are also forming for some. When using the dock in particular, that’s when the issues may begin to surface.
Making the situation even stranger is that HORI’s other, cheaper screen protector for Switch is apparently just fine. If we happen to hear anything about this accessory as well, we’ll let you know.
