Nintendo has announced the long-rumored update to its hybrid console, the Nintendo Switch. Launching on October 8 at a suggested retail price of $349.99, the new Nintendo Switch OLED model features a larger, 7-inch OLED screen that provides better colors and contrast than the original’s 6.2-inch LCD screen. Nintendo’s updated Switch also features a wide adjustable stand, new dock with a wired LAN port, 64 GB of internal storage, and enhanced audio. Contrary to recent rumors, the Nintendo Switch OLED model does not seem to feature any kind of performance upgrade.
Nintendo Switch (OLED model) launches on Oct. 8, the same day as the Metroid Dread game, the next entry in the 2D Metroid saga that kicked off with the original Metroid on NES. With the vibrant OLED screen and enhanced audio, embarking on the latest adventure of intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran in Metroid Dread while playing in handheld or tabletop mode will feel even more immersive.
