Print copies of this issue ship with a new double-sided Splatoon poster! On one side, the official art seen on the magazine’s cover and the game’s box is blown up large for your wall. On the reverse, an all-new illustration from Thor Thorvaldson celebrates the fact that nearly all the characters in Splatoon are some kind of marine life by putting the Inkling Girl front-and-center, then surrounding her with a veritable ocean full of aquatic Nintendo characters both past and present. As always, the choice of which side you display is yours!
