Splatoon 3 is almost here, which means fans in Japan can take part in a brand new Splatoon-themed campaign at 7-11 stores. Just like the Splatoon 2 x 7-11 campaign back in 2017, there’s plenty of merch and food to enjoy!

Starting on Monday, August 29th, participating 7-11 locations throughout Japan will have a special Splatoon 3 menu. Customers can pick up the following food items: an apple and grape “battle” jelly, a blueberry-flavored melonpan, a sugar doughnut (iced in yellow and blue), a squid burger, a strawberry and tofu jelly, and a beef vs. chicken “battle” curry.



Making qualifying purchases from the Splatoon 3 Collaboration Menu with the 7-11 app will earn you an entry in a special Splatoon 3 lottery. The top prizes are a limited blanket and cushion set (available in Squid and Octopus versions).



On the store shelves, you can also find some Splatoon 3 branded ramen (available in seafood and squid flavors) and gummies (lemon and grape soda flavored). These will roll out on Saturday, September 3rd (ramen) and Monday, September 5th (gummies). Plus, the ramen will also include one of 16 different Splatoon 3-themed stickers! Collect ’em all!



As for the merchandise, there will be a variety of items you can get when purchasing select beverages, snacks, and ice cream beginning on Thursday, September 1st. Available while supplies last, customers can get one of eight different decorated bottle tops, one of four different reversible key chains, and/or one of four different A4 clear files.



Lastly, for all My Nintendo members, you’ll want to stop by any 7-11 store from Thursday, September 1st to Monday, September 12th, and check in with the My Nintendo app. Doing so will give you four special wallpapers.



For Splatoon fans outside of Japan, all we can do for now is pine away at this campaign (and Baskin Robbins’ collab) and hope someone is able to upload the free wallpapers online. Thankfully we’ll all be able to jump right into Splatoon 3 together when it launches worldwide on Friday, September 9th.
