The Nintendo Switch OLED model will be released tomorrow. If you already own a switch, it might not be worth upgrading. However, if you want to buy the latest Switch model, Best Buy will have the console in stock tomorrow, according to its website.
On the Nintendo Switch OLED landing page, Best Buy is offering a countdown timer to prepare for the hybrid game console’s release. We asked Best Buy for a comment on when the refills will be firmly available, but the countdown implies that they might be available when the timer hits zero.
Nintendo Switch OLED model vs. Original Nintendo Switch comparison
The landing page offers lists for both the White and Neon Red / Neon Blue Switch OLED consoles, although there are also a ton of new lists that have one of the Switch OLED colors along with a carrying case , a copy of Metroid Dread (which will also be released tomorrow), or all three articles together.
The Nintendo Switch OLED was originally announced in July and features a slightly larger OLED display. The new Switch model uses the same specs as the base Nintendo Switch, so this isn’t the long-rumored “Switch Pro” that many were hoping for.
In our test of the Nintendo Switch OLED, I praised the slightly larger and brighter display despite recycling the same graphics and computing power, which makes playing in direct sunlight easier. And that the console was a big upgrade for those who play the Switch mostly in handheld or tabletop mode.
