It seems that Switch OLED has gotten off to a strong start in terms of sales, so many of you reading this must have picked up Nintendo’s new console SKU over the last week or so. We are fans of the lovely new screen and the various improvements to the basic design that give the consoles a marginally more premium feel compared to the reliable standard switches we have been rocking for several years now.
When looking at Nintendo’s marketing materials, one would be forgiven for thinking that there is only one variant available — the one with the new white dock and Joy-Con — but there is also a version with the good old neon red and blue Joy-Con and a black dock for switch traditionalists and lovers of OG nuances.
A quick survey around the NL office shows that the neon red / blue option was the less popular choice by a significant margin. In fact, only Darren – our sterling Ops Director – went after
boring classic possibility. He has already already squirreled away the new controllers in the attic, presumably for when the analog sticks on its retrieving Skyward Sword Joy-Con pair start playing:
Which Switch OLED did you however pick up? We imagine that most would have gone for the brand new variety just for a change, but we would like to back up that assumption with some cold hard data from your lovely self. Let us know in the poll below and maybe make Daz feel a little less lonely in his life choices.
