Nintendo Switch Oled Pro Model Announced

Rumors have been rife about a possible “Nintendo Switch Pro” for months. In fact, Nintendo even stated that they want fans to “stop asking about the Switch Pro”. Finally, Nintendo has revealed that the new upgrade is not only real, but is called the Nintendo Switch OLED.

The Nintendo Switch OLED will release on October 8th, 2021 at $349.99 MSRP. It features a more vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, adjustable stand, dock with LAN port, 64Gb internal storage and enhanced audio.

“The new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) is a great option for players who want to experience the new vibrant screen when playing in handheld and tabletop mode. With the addition of this new model to the Nintendo Switch family of systems, people have an additional choice of a system that best fits the gaming experience they desire – whether it’s Nintendo Switch (OLED model), Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite.”

Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser

Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will let players experience enhancements in all three play modes:

  • TV mode: Set the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) system into the dock to play Nintendo Switch games on the TV. By using the built-in wired LAN port, players can enjoy another way to connect online in TV mode.
  • Tabletop mode: Flip the stand on the back of the system and use the system’s screen to play multiplayer games using two Joy-Con controllers right out of the box. A wide adjustable stand makes for a solid and sturdy foundation. It allows players to freely tilt the system and adjust the viewing angle, so it makes it easier to see the screen.
  • Handheld mode: Players can bring the system wherever they go in handheld mode and play local* or online** multiplayer with friends. The system’s 7-inch OLED screen provides vivid color and crisp contrast.

The Nintendo Switch OLED will also launch same-day as the new Metroid Dread, the latest entry in the 2D Metroid series. Fans will no doubt enjoy playing Samus Aran with the new upgraded vibrant screen.
