More Nintendo Switch OLED colors coming soon?

When the Nintendo Switch Lite first launched, there were only three main color options, then within the next year and a half, additional colors and designs were added to the lineup. As such, it's very likely the same thing will happen with the OLED model. There are also some limited-edition Nintendo Switch consoles out there that sport themes for popular games. More of these will likely be created but for the Switch OLED.

For instance, Bayonetta 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 are both aiming for a 2022 release date. Considering how popular those games are, it really won't be surprising for one or both of them to get special-themed Switch consoles near their launch. We'll keep our ears to the ground and will report back if we see any other color choices.

Joy-Con variety

If you want to make your Nintendo Switch OLED stand out, there are several Joy-Con colors you can purchase. More often than not, the Joy-Cons will be different colors from each other, but occasionally you can find a same-color pair.
