    Nintendo has a special edition Nintendo Switch just waiting for all the excited Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans. Featuring special Joy-Cons, a pattern on the back of the system, and a themed dock for the console, this stylized Switch will be made available a week prior to the launch of the latest Animal Crossing game. It's referred to as the Aloha Edition Nintendo Switch, and will retail for $299.99 when it launches on March 13, 2020. A matching case and screen protector will also be available for separate purchase, as well. Currently, it's only confirmed for release in North America.

    EDIT: EU gets it on March 20th.

    Pretty nice color scheme, looks good even if you are not a fan of animal crossing.

    I have two hackable switches. One banned for Homebrew and piracy, the other is staying stock/unhacked.

    I thought those pictures were showing the Switch in sand (because the game is on an island) and I became really, really anxious.

    My girlfriend lost her mind when she saw it. Too cute for her not to get lol. I really like the colors and that dock is the bomb.

    And I get her Lite soooo that's a win.

    I can already see the coming 'sold out' in my head.
    Hopefully they make more than 10. :P

    possibly a stupid question, but what if you sent your animal crossing system in for repairs? would you get an animal crossing system back?

    This is what annoys me when nintendo come up with any excuse to crap out another so called limited edition.

    Knowing die hard collectors and fans will blindly rebuy the same shit multiple times.

    And how people get so excited over it, its just a $5 plastic case.

    I don't even like animal crossing, but that's gorgeous. I hope I can get those Joycons separately.

    Not as enthusiastic aw you are guys.
    Don't get me wrong, it's cute but it's just an other set of colors for joycons. Big N can do better than that.
