Nintendo announces Splatoon-themed limited edition Switch OLED


Nintendo is no stranger to limited edition variations of their consoles, and now that the Switch OLED has had some time on the market, it seems it's about time for it to get its own limited edition. Revealed today was the Splatoon 3 themed Switch OLED console, which comes with Joy-Cons split into two hues, blue and purple and yellow and green, adorned with artwork across the shells. The dock is also unique, grey, with imagery from the Splatoon series, and a neon-yellow paint splotch, while the Switch OLED tablet has similar designs on the back as well. No price was given, but the Splatoon 3 Switch OLED limited edition will be out on August 26th, while Splatoon 3 itself releases September 9th.

Well, still not impossible, but even if there was a Pro, it just seem like too late now.
this, the n3ds, ps4 pro, xbox one s, all released ~3 years into the console's lifespan. Sure, covid could have messed with that for the switch, but 3 years after launch was march 3 2020, if it were happening, we would have gotten an announcement, or at least weird things going on in the firmware, in january. 2 years later and still nothing...

this is how a nintendo product is supposed to look: colorful, fun... For OLED they went with the most boring color ever, that is white.
It felt more like a Metroid Dread color scheme, since it matched the text, and released on the same day.

Not bad except for the big yellow splotch.
But I guess that's what this fandom wants (yellows8 would approve).
