In addition to releasing a new trailer for the upcoming video games Pokemon Scarlet and Violet today, Nintendo also announced that there will be a special new Pokemon-themed edition of the Nintendo Switch OLED system to coincide with the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet this November. The Nintendo Switch OLED Model: Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Edition system, which is how Nintendo is designating it, will release on November 4th for $359.99.
The new Pokemon-themed Nintendo Switch OLED system features, as one might expect, a number of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet design flourishes. The video games' Legendary Pokemon, Koraidon and Miraidon, feature on the glossy front of the Nintendo Switch OLED dock while a Poke Ball-inspired design adorns the back of the dock. The actual Nintendo Switch OLED itself has illustrations of the starter Pokemon Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly alongside various symbols that can be found in the upcoming video games. Meanwhile, the Joy-Con controllers come in scarlet and violet and include the emblems from the Naranja Academy and Uva Academy.
