Nintendo Switch OLED pre-order guide

Here's how you can pre-order the Nintendo Switch OLED Model.


Nintendo surprised everyone when they casually announced the Nintendo Switch OLED, a new iteration of the hybrid console, last week. Featuring a bigger display, an Ethernet port, and as the name would imply, an OLED screen, the new Switch model is set to launch on October 8, 2021. Fans will soon be able to start plunking down cash for the new system, so let’s look at how you can pre-order the Nintendo Switch OLED Model.

How to pre-order the Nintendo Switch OLED Model

The Nintendo Switch OLED Model will be available for pre-order starting on July 15, 2021, at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET, as Nintendo has confirmed. The console costs $349.99 USD and will be available at several different retailers. Here is a list of all the retailers selling pre-orders of the Nintendo Switch OLED Model beginning on July 15:

When 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET rolls around, you’ll want to be quick if you plan on upgrading to the Nintendo Switch OLED Model. Sentiment surrounding the new console has been heavily mixed, with many disappointed that it isn't the long-rumored Switch Pro. That said, it’s still an upgrade from the base model. If the trends of trying to buy a Nintendo Switch (or any console for that matter) remain the same this year, the Switch OLED Model will likely be a difficult system to get your hands on this Holiday Season. It’s because of that reason that you’ll want to be quick on the draw if you want to score a system.

That’s how you can pre-order a Nintendo Switch OLED Model. The system is set to launch this fall on October 8, 2021. For more on the latest products from Nintendo, stick with us right here on Shacknews.

      I decided I'm going to wait on this. The screen is really tempting, but it's not a need. Have too many things around the house that I need to put the money towards. If nothing else, just having the cash on hand while we're about to buy new clothes for the kids as they get ready for school in a few short weeks, will help soften the blow to the wallet.
