    The first custom theme has been released by the Qcean Switch team. It is called "Winter Odyssey" and can be seen above.

    • All elements on the home screen can be recoloured.
    • Themes are stable (they won't cause the Switch to crash).
    • Image themes are possible (as can be seen with Winter Odyssey).
    • Themes don't work on SX OS just yet.

    Can we make our own?

    A home menu editor is on its way, so you'll be able to create your own very shortly.


    Where can we get them?

    Themes aren't yet legal to distribute on GBAtemp but this is being worked on. For the moment, you can get Winter Odyssey from Qcean's discord server (which we can't link here), as well as others when they are released.

    Official discussion thread is here.

    This is nice! So bad things like this have ban risk, I'd really love to use my own custom themes.

    Maybe this will light a fire under Nintendo's ass to release some official themes for Switch finally, background music and all.

    Why would it? It's not like they've ever done that for any of their other consoles.

    Yeah but they did for 3DS, and Switch is basically using an improved 3DS OS.

    Ahh, excuse my ignorance. I've never owned a 3DS, I had a 2DS a few years back which i loaned to my brother and never got back.

    Does this affect boot times? I'd prefer no themes, if it made switching games slower, and booting up taking longer.

    But, it still looks cool. :P

    That's untested, but while testing I haven't seem to notice any delay.

    Would be interesting to know if Custom Themes make the system any slower.

    Nintendo needs to step up their game and make actual themes.

    I wish. What's with Nintendo's current hate of background music? Menu is silent, eShop is silent, NES games app is silent.
    Gimme some tunes, Nintendo.

    Nice work. It looks so much better than the vanilla theme it comes with
