Gamers, get ready! The all-new Nintendo Switch OLED console is here.
The Nintendo Switch OLED console, inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom video game, dropped on Friday (April 28).
The console became available for pre-order on March 28 and retails for $359.99, slightly more than Nintendo’s standard OLED Switch. The special-edition Switch features a Hylian Crest from the Legend of Zelda series on the front of the dock along with other designs inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
In addition to the gaming system, Nintendo will release a Tears of the Kingdom-edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller ($74.99) and a matching carrying case ($24.99) on May 12, the same day as the video game’s release.
The Nintendo Switch OLED model and new accessories are available for at Best Buy and Amazon, and you might be able to find the console at Game Stop.
Nintendo Switch OLED boasts a seven-inch screen with 64 GB of internal storage, a wide adjustable stand and dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately). The OLED Switch has three playing modes: TV mode, handheld mode (when the Joy-Con controllers are attached for portable play) and tabletop mode. Plus, gamers can enjoy enhanced audio when the console is in handheld and tabletop mode.
Tears of the Kingdom is the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game went into development after Breath of the Wild was completed in 2017 and was initially scheduled for release last year.
In Tears of the Kingdom, players get to create their own paths “through the sprawling landscapes of Hyrule and the mysterious islands floating in the vast skies above,” according to Nintendo. The video game features new elements including a floating island that players can soar between.
