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).

    @KenniesNewName That's the problem with gadgets, there's a new one being leaked, announced, released every week, and if you wait for something better to come along you can wait forever, there's always something new on the horizon.

    Same thing with price too. Miyoo Mini is $50 and it's fine, but RP2 is only $100 and has way more options, but now there's the RP3 and it's just $30 more, but the Ayn Odin Lite is $190 and it's very powerful, but the Ayn Odin Pro is $250 and it's an absolute beast, but now we're already in the Windows handheld range and I really would like a Windows handheld... Ayn Loki starts at $200, but why not add a few bucks for better specs... but now we're close to the Steam Deck and that is a much better choice...

    So we get from $50 to $500 in tiny, reasonable increments.

    My attitude in those cases is to decide what I want in that particular moment, not waiting for emminent releases. And decide based on function, that is, if I will use it almost daily and if it satisfies my desire/need

    This saves me money, room space and head space

    I just give up on buying anything and wait until the desire subsides. Works just as well.
