Just moments ago, Nintendo dropped a trailer announcing the first major revision model to the world since the Nintendo Lite (you know what I mean). So let’s just get right into it because I’m sure you want to know all about it!
- The new system features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port, 64 GB of internal storage, and enhanced audio.
- Feast your eyes on vivid colors and crisp contrast when you play on the go. See the difference the vibrant screen makes, whether you’re racing at top speed or squaring off against enemies.
- Wide, adjustable stand. Flip out the sturdy stand for easy viewing in Tabletop mode. Adjust the stand to find the optimal viewing angle—perfect for a quick multiplayer game with a buddy.
- Built-in wired LAN port. Connect online using the dock’s LAN port when playing in TV mode.
- Save games to your system with 64 GB of internal storage.
- Enjoy enhanced audio from the system’s onboard speakers.
- Comes in new “white” and the classic “neon red and blue”.
- Both models priced at $349.99
- Released October 8th.

The way they’ve worded this as “the newest member of the Nintendo family” implies that the other 2 existing models will stick around for now. So your Switch will not get phased out in terms of games suddenly becoming unplayable. Does that mean anything for the future, like in 2025? Who knows, only time will tell. But even by then, this new model may very well be outdated.
