Splatoon 2‘s drop date of July 21 is fast approaching, so it only makes sense that accessory makers will want to be getting in on the¬†action with the hotly anticipated title. Enter Hori and its official Splatoon 2 headset. Nintendo had already dropped word of the game’s voice chat feature via a smartphone application, Now, we finally know how that feature will work… and it’s a bit complicated. Complicated enough that a diagram is required, as seen below:

As demonstrated above, there’s a tangle of warriors connecting into a (delightful) squid-shaped connector device that splits three ways between the Hori headset, a smart device, and the Switch itself. In brief, the headset and phone are piping in the voices of other combatants, while the Switch is providing in-game noises. Thankfully, despite being a bit clunky, the setup seems easy enough to arrange, and the headset itself looks mighty fine. It’s modeled after an actual Splatoon 2 headset from in the game! Take a better look below:
