    not a fan of the color combination. This looks just as if they weren't able to make the joycons in the same color or one joycon is discolored because of sunlight, or whatever.

    I already had a feeling that visual customizations on the Switch would be sparse, though I don't get why the tablet itself still has to be black. That always baffled me somehow.

    Despite that the back of the tablet does look decent, but I wouldn't be surprised if you could just slap two stickers onto the dock and it would look just like in that video.

    Damn, dats pretty kawaii! Meanwhile, I'm here with my plain grey Switch :P

    I told my friend who just wanted a Switch for Pokemans to wait it out, and just linked him to that. I'm sure he'll be hyped :D

    Ugly. But considering it's well adorned, it is fairly priced.

    Something about the yellow decals on black looks super cheap to me...

    If they added eevee and Pikachu to their respective joycons it'd look nicer.

    That looks absolutely god awful to my eyes. Combination of yellow and then the yellowy-brown. Yuck.

    Edit: And the colors of the decals don't even seem to match the joycon colors. Who designed this?

    I can't say I'm a huge fan of those colors. First of all, that's not even the right color for Eevee (it should be a darker color), but more than that it's just not a very flattering color combination. And the yellow doesn't even match up with the color on the dock.
    The dock itself though does look kinda cool I guess.
    They really need to start doing more with limited edition consoles than just different colored JoyCons. What about a custom screen bezel and back, and some actual designs on the JoyCons? They probably don't have their factories set up to do that yet, but honestly every limited edition console since at least the DS Lite has had some kind of custom design on it, it seems like they're taking a huge step backwards.

    Nice... Still not getting the game tho.
    Kind of see what you mean, but it matches closely to the colors on the Switch dock, so I'm fine with it. Maybe they figure making it too brown would be distracting?

    What do you mean? Doesn't seem like enough room.

    Oh boy, piss and shit colored joycons! Meanwhile China is producing beautiful translucent shells in every color of the rainbow.

    Not to mention it'll certainly cost at least $100 more, and be patched of the Tegra exploit!
