The Official HORI Twitter page has revealed a Splatoon-themed headset system for Nintendo Switch. The initial photos show a setup that requires the Nintendo Switch to be in handheld mode, and a custom splitter that allows the headset to be plugged in to both the Nintendo Switch console and a cell phone (for the voice app). The headset itself looks pretty cool (it appears as if we’ll even have interchangeable faceplates), but the system is clearly broken, especially for those that want to use voice chat while in docked TV mode.

Andrew has been a nerd his whole life. He built his first computer when he was 8, started working in the IT industry at 15, and played competitive Counter-Strike at 16. His interest in amiibo started before their release but didn’t really take off until after the new year. He doesn’t like to admit it but Little Mac and WFT are among the amiibo that he had pre-ordered from Amazon but cancelled before their release. Little did he know a few months later he’d help start Amiibo Alerts. Gaming has always been his passion. He grew up with an NES, Sega Genesis, and PS2 before realizing that PCs truly are better than consoles.
The urge to be a little better, brought on by being a gamer, is what pushes him to help make Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal amazing communities. Together with the team he has built, he is realizing a life-long dream: bringing something helpful and fun to a large group of people. Andrew’s role at Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal as Founder and Editor in Chief allows him to create and build contacts within the community, review and present products, and stay on top of all things Nintendo.
