Special Pokémon Scarlet & Nintendo Switch OLED Launching in November

Pokémon fans and game collectors have a new Nintendo Switch OLED model to pick up this November, ahead of the games’ launch.

On top of revealing a new trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet this morning, Nintendo has also revealed a new special edition themed Nintendo Switch for fans/gamers to pick up as well. If you’ve been holding out on upgrading to the OLED version of the Switch (which is pretty damn fantastic), this seems like a pretty great reason to make the jump.

A new adventure is about to unfold! On Nov. 4, the Nintendo Switch – OLED Model: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition system will be available at select stores, featuring art inspired by the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games (sold separately). The Legendary Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon are featured on the glossy front side of the white system’s dock, and a design inspired by the series’ iconic Poké Ball is featured on the back. The back of the system itself is adorned with special illustrations of the three Pokémon you can choose as your first partners in the game – Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly – along with illustrations of symbols players may recognize as they journey through the games. The Joy-Con controllers, which match the main colors of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, feature the school emblems of the Naranja Academy and Uva Academy that appear in the respective games.

Yeah, it’s kind of a bummer to have this awesome new console, but not include the games to go with it. Alas, I doubt collectors/fans will care all that much. The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Nintendo Switch OLED console launches on November 4, 2022, a few weeks ahead of the games on November 18th.
