Nintendo Switch OLED model will go on sale October 8th for $350

Nintendo is announcing a new Switch model today with a larger 7-inch 720p OLED display. While rumors had suggested this new Switch would ship with a new Nvidia chip inside, this new OLED model is mostly a screen upgrade. Nintendo lists this Switch OLED model as only supporting 1080p via TV mode, and rumors had suggested 4K support, thanks to a rumored Nvidia chip upgrade. The Switch OLED model will go on sale for $350 starting on October 8th.

What the “OLED Model” means for the future of Nintendo Switch

The most surprising thing about the Switch's newly announced "OLED Model" might just be what it's missing. Namely, it's missing a new chipset that bumps up the processing power above what's available on existing Switch hardware. That lack of improved internals is surprising mainly because of a number of reports...

Global Nintendo Switch Pro release details supposedly revealed by peripheral maker

Nintendo won’t be releasing a Switch Pro console in 2021 according to a tweet made by the popular YouTube channel SwitchUp. The release information in the post purportedly comes from a Chinese peripheral manufacturer that has been working on accessories for the Nintendo Switch Pro. While gamers may be dismayed about 2021 apparently being off the cards, there is hope offered up by the words “they’ve been told 2022 global market release.”

Who Is The Nintendo Switch OLED Model For, Exactly?

Yesterday, Nintendo surprised fans when it announced a new version of the Switch, and not one that many were hoping for. The Nintendo Switch OLED edition is exactly that, a Nintendo Switch with a slightly bigger, brighter OLED screen as its main draw, combined with improved sound, larger base storage and a wired LAN port. But what it did not have is what earlier reports were saying that were right about everything else, an upgraded chip that would give it more power and allow it to play at 4K resolution when docked. The internals of this new Switch are identical to the current one, including the battery.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Review (Switch) Monster Hunter is a series with a longstanding tradition of being impenetrable to casual first-time players, with systems layered upon systems and tricky combat. In the mainline series Monster Hunter: World provided a multi-platform mainstream breakthrough, while on Switch the recent Monster Hunter Rise followed that lead in applying copious quality of life improvements, and at times aggressive streamlining, to make the experience more palatable for a wide audience. That said, the IP's broad universe and the intricacies of its monsters are still vitally important factors, and no genre is better suited to making sense of a complex world than a traditional RPG.

Must-play Nintendo Switch games are almost half off

Nintendo finally announced the Switch with an OLED screen that comes out in October, but right now, GameStop is hosting a big one-day discount on two must-have Switch games: Super Mario Odyssey and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Each game is going for $35 (usually $60) for the physical or digital versions, and if you have the means, I suggest getting both. Super Mario Odyssey is the latest (delightful) installment in the long-running Mario 3D platforming franchise, while Fire Emblem: Three Houses has strategic, turn-based battles interspersed with team- and friend-building elements you’d usually find in a Persona game.

Everyone Thinks GameStop Just Leaked The ‘New Nintendo Switch’ [Update]

Update: While I am still waiting to hear back from GameStop corporate, I’ve spoken with some individual stores and this is the gist of what they’re telling me:. Essentially, this ad copy is just all over the place and confusing, but fundamentally no, it does not represent a new Nintendo Switch console, ie. the Pro, being imminently announced. I was told a number of stores were getting in new shipments of current Nintendo Switches this Tuesday, hence the promotion, and this does not have to do with a new model coming.
