Nintendo has officially announced a Pokémon Scarlet and Violet edition of the OLED Switch model, featuring a variety of upcoming Pokémon and themed artwork. The model is scheduled to become available on November 4th, 2022.
You can check out a full teaser for the upcoming OLED model on Nintendo’s YouTube channel here:
The fans have almost unanimously agreed that Nintendo made some great artistic decisions on this one. There’s a terrific balance between the tidy designs for the controller, the intricate background for the dock, and the controlled chaos for the back of the screen.
There’s a particular interest in contrast here that really makes the colors pop. And even though the collage of stickers on the back of the model is deliberately messy, the chalky look blends well with the black background. Besides, the partner Pokémon are already a big hit.
A lot of love went into this edition, which always rewards you for looking just a little bit closer. It’s very clean, without losing any detail. Chances are, many fans will be looking forward to this OLED Model.
If you’re curious, the OLED boasts a larger screen, improved colorization and audio, as well as a smoother dock design. One of the biggest features is the LAN support though, allowing players to use an Ethernet cable for optimal online gameplay. This will make a big difference for multiplayer games, which arrives just in time for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s co-op gameplay addition.
Meanwhile, Pokémon released another trailer today, which was teased just yesterday. It more or less delivered the expected, showing off some new faces and elaborating a little more on the so-called “Treasure Hunt” concept that was teased since the beginning.
