Nintendo reveals another new OLED Switch, with Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition

The Switch has a whole bunch of SKU’s out there, including the just launched Splatoon version, but now you can get ready for another one.

I choose you

If you’re on the hunt for a Switch, you definitely have some options out there. For one thing, there’s the Lite model, which is a surprisingly cool little handheld. Then there’s the basic version, and the OLED.

But on top of those, there are also the branded-versions. Nintendo just released one of those, with the Splatoon edition, emblazoned with graphics and colors based on the new Splatoon 3 game. Say that one’s not for you though, say you don’t like Splatoon, but you really want a Switch with a little flair. Or maybe you’re just a big Pokémon fan.

And if that’s the case, you’re gonna love the OLED Model: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition system.

OLED Model features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage, a portion of which is reserved for use by the system, and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode. The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model system can be played in three modes: TV mode, played on a TV while the system is docked; handheld mode, when the Joy-Con controllers are attached for portable play; and tabletop mode for on-the-go multiplayer gaming sessions.

Nintendo press release

As you can see, this Switch isn’t shy about its Pokémon deco. The dock, the console itself, and even the Joy-Cons are all decked out in purple and red, the shades of the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

The unit will retail for $359.99 USD, and is scheduled to hit retail on November 4th. That’s just a short time ahead of the latest games in the long-running Nintendo series, which will be along on the 18th of that same month. Pre-orders should be open now.
