News: Nintendo Switch OLED Launches 8th October 2021 on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The Nintendo Switch OLED is launching on Friday 8th October for £309.99/ 364.99€. The new and improved Nintendo Switch features a 7 inch OLED display, up from 6.2 inches on the original model. The OLED display replaces the previous LCD panel allowing for better levels of contrast. Nintendo have also updated the speakers to now include enhanced audio, and the latest firmware update has enabled wireless headphones to be used with all models of the Nintendo Switch. The new and improved dock features a dedicated Ethernet/LAN port for more stable online gaming sessions, at the expense of a USB-A port.

The new system represents a great opportunity for certain games to look fantastic when viewed in handheld mode, and don't forget that even more games can be stored natively on the system as the OLED model has increased the onboard memory from 32GB to 64GB. 

There are a range of highly anticipated games making their way to Nintendo Switch for the final quarter of the year including heavy hitters such as Metroid DreadPokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, Mario Party Superstars and Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp to name but a few.

The Nintendo Switch OLED is available to preorder now from Nintendo Store UK.
