Just like the gorgeous Splatoon 3 console before it, a brand new Nintendo Switch OLED Model system has been unveiled, this time inspired by none other than Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
The console launches on 4th November, just a couple of weeks before the new games themselves arrive. Pre-orders have already started to appear in the UK, with the US expected to follow shortly; we’ll add links to any stores that stock the system here in this guide as and when they appear.

Ready to pick up one of these beauties? Here’s where you can currently order one; the suggested retail price is $359.99 / £319.99…
Pre-orders have started to go live in the UK. Here’s where you can order one right now (we’ll add more stores if and when they appear):
Pre-orders aren’t live at US retailers just yet, but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time. We’ll add all the links you need right here as soon as they appear.
Here’s a closer look, in case you need convincing:
If you’re also wanting to pre-order a copy of either of the games (or both), make sure to check out our dedicated Pokémon Scarlet & Violet pre-order guide which is tracking all of the best deals and cheapest prices across all retailers in the US and UK.
Another beautiful system to add to the collection, then. Or maybe even a great first console for anyone yet to pick up a Switch? Let us know if you’ll be getting one of these with a comment below.
About Ryan Craddock
Ryan can list the first 151 Pokémon all in order off by heart – a feat he calls his ‘party trick’ despite being such an introvert that he’d never be found anywhere near a party. He’d much rather just have a night in with Mario Kart and a pizza, and we can’t say we blame him.
Quite a splatoonish artwork on the back.
I’m still very wary of buying a Switch OLED. I still have the 2017 model, and I’d love to crack it open for Smash mods while using a newer Switch for everything else, but at the same time if I buy another Switch and Nintendo announces the Switch Pro, I will be so angry. Still, this one is thus far probably the most tempting design of any Switch that was designed after a specific game.
Can’t be long now before Nintendo drops the OG Switch and just sells OLED and Lite to open up manufacturing for Switch 2. Can’t keep producing 3 current gen models and a new one. Sony ditched Pro, probably b/c it’s too close in power in PS5, and kept the OG, but I think Nintendo does the opposite and keeps selling this more expensive model and drops the OG. Meaning Switch may be the only console to ever be on the market for 7 years and never have a price drop, $299 cradle to the grave. OLED will probably drop to $299 once Switch 2 launches. There probably won’t be a Switch Pro at the late date sorry to say. But it’s had a good run.
It looks cool, but shame its Pokemon, I thought the same about the Splatoon one too, give us a Zelda one
Why not buying a skin for your switch deck? Who will buy this if they already own a switch?
I don’t want the base console but I’ll pay good money for that slick looking dock.
The purple joycon reminds me of Saints Row: The Third cover. I’d actually love to get this version but the white one looks too good next to a PS5.
definitely getting this. It’s up for preorder on Gamestop but I don’t have 500 bucks for it right now, otherwise I would snap it up in a heartbeat.
@Pokefanmum82 link or did you do in store?
Wished the Pokemon Joy-Con got more treatment like the Splatoon 3 Joy-Cons.
Will you also update this when it becomes available in Europe (specifically in the netherlands)?
Yeah, I thought the same thing!
Removed – unconstructive
@KayFiOS you can always sell it to get most of your money back as long as you take good care of it
@Pokefanmum82 OUT OF STOCK That is in Cananda…. no good old usa….ugh….
@SwitchForce I was able to secure one on Best Buy Canada’s website. So maybe check Best Buy in the US or Amazon
@Pokefanmum82 I’ve looked at Amazon us but haven’t seen a bestbuy and did check with my local gamestop.
FYI preorders went up on Gamestop and sold out already in the US.
“Pre-orders aren’t live at US retailers just yet, but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time. We’ll add all the links you need right here as soon as they appear.”
Meanwhile US preorders are sold out YESTERDAY and no updates here. Absolute last time I use this site for actual news.
