The Nintendo Switch OLED model releases on October 8. Ahead of that, reviews for Nintendo’s latest piece of hardware have arrived, shining a light on what critics think.
The system costs $350, which is $50 more than the standard model. So you might be wondering if spending more to pick up the new model is worth your money, especially as rumors of a 4K model of the system continue to grow. We’re rounding up reviews for the OLED here to help you make an informed decision.
Here at GameSpot, our Switch OLED review said it is perhaps a more impressive redesign than you might have expected. “The greatly improved display makes playing the Switch in handheld mode even more of a joy, and the other quality-of-life upgrades, particularly the retooling of the dock and the kickstand, offer nice features that will be appreciated by many,” reviewer Steven Petite said. “If you’re looking to buy a Nintendo Switch for the first time, you should absolutely go for the OLED model if you can.”
