Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Switch OLED revealed
Original (9/7): Nintendo will release a special Switch OLED system for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, the company has announced. It will be available on November 4, 2022 at select stores. Pricing is set at $359.99.
The console features art inspired by the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet games. The Legendary Pokemon Koraidon and Miraidon are displayed on the glossy front side of the white system’s dock, and a design inspired by the series’ iconic Poke Ball is shown on the back. The back of the system itself is adorned with special illustrations of the three Pokémon you can choose as your first partners in the game – Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly – along with illustrations of symbols players may recognize as they journey through the games. If that wasn’t enough, the Joy-Con controllers, which match the main colors of Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, feature the school emblems of the Naranja Academy and Uva Academy that appear in the respective games.
The Switch OLED contains a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage, a portion of which is reserved for use by the system, and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet will arrive for Switch on November 18, 2022.

Update (9/13): Despite recent Nintendo hardware not having pre-orders in North America, it seems that this could be changing for this hardware launch. GameStop just opened pre-orders here.
