New Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Switch OLED
Seems like whenever a new flagship Nintendo game is about to release, it gets a special edition Switch to go with it. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are no exception,
as today, Nintendo has revealed the orange and grape-flavored OLED Switch that will accompany the release of the next major Pokémon title.
Burdened with the especially cumbersome name — The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition — the OLED Switch launches on November 4th and retails at $359.99,
making the fancy paint job featuring Scarlet and Violet’s new legendaries Koraidon and Miraidon worth $10 extra bucks than the regular stark white SWOLED.
In addition to the new SWOLED, Nintendo also released a new trailer for ScarVi (my new name for the game that I just made up right now) that gives us even more details on what to expect from the game.
The trailer revealed the “evil” Team Star — a group of rebellious students that seem to live in their own autonomous zone,
which is a hilarious bit of world-building when you realize that Paldea’s partly based on Spain, a country that is currently grappling with independence movements.
