After months of speculation, Nintendo has finally announced pricing and specs of the upcoming OLED Model of its Switch gaming system.
The Nintendo Switch family is getting bigger on October 8 of this year, with a new Nintendo Switch much-awaited version that includes a larger 7-inch OLED screen. The OLED model of the popular gaming system will launch at a suggested retail price of $349.99.
Although the device itself is similar in size to its predecessor, the new OLED screen’s real estate has been increased. Furthermore, the OLED technology makes colors more vivid, and contrast a lot crisper.
Another improvement is a wide adjustable stand for the device, perfect for tabletop mode, a new dock that includes a wired LAN port (yup, we still need those), 64GB of internal storage, and enhanced audio capabilities.
What stays the same, however, is the way it’s used. Single gamers can take the device with them and play on the go – or use a TV for a bigger screen. Multiple players can also play together by sharing the system’s detachable Joy-Con controllers. All currently released Joy-Con controllers will be compatible, as will the full library of current Nintendo Switch Games.
However, you should note that it may not fit all parameters of the Nintendo Labo series as the console differs quite a bit – especially due to the larger screen size. If you want to transfer digital games and save data from another Switch, you can also do this.
When it launches, the device will come in two color options to choose from. There’s, white, with white Joy-Con controllers, a black main unit, and a white dock; or, neon red/neon blue, with neon red and neon blue Joy-Con controllers, a black main unit, and a black dock.
Furthermore, owners of the system will be able to buy a separate carrying case and screen protector to protect it.
The Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will launch on October 8. On the same day, Nintendo will launch Metroid Dread, “the next entry in the 2D Metroid saga that kicked off with the original Metroid on NES.”
