Nintendo announces Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition Switch OLED

Nintendo is announcing it will release a new edition of the Switch OLED themed after the Switch’s upcoming entry from the Pokémon franchise. A new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Edition of the updated Switch OLED will arrive to retail stores in the US on November 4.

The Scarlet and Violet Edition Switch will feature illustrations of legendary Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon on the front of the white dock in a glossy finish. There’s also a Pokéball-inspired graphic on the back of the dock, with purple and orange Joy Cons with the same Pokémon shown on the dock.

The backside of the Switch and Joycons features graphics of the three starter Pokémon in the upcoming games: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly along with some symbols and emblems that appear in the games.

This special edition of the Switch will arrive to US retail stores just a couple of weeks before Pokèmon Scarlet and Violet are released on November 18. The Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Edition will retail for $359, a $10 premium over the standard Switch OLED.
