With the exciting announcements surrounding the new Pokémon games, Scarlet and Violet, Nintendo has just announced that a special Nintendo Switch console will be available soon as well.

If you’re wondering how long you’d have to wait to get your hands on one of these collector’s items, then we have good news for you. The Nintendo Switch OLED Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition will be available on November 4 and will cost $359.99. However, bear in mind that the two new Pokémon games are not included in the cost, and you will have to get them separately once they are released. It’s also interesting to note that the release date of the console is set before the new Pokémon games are released, which means that you can get your new Nintendo Switch in anticipation of the new games.

The main draw of getting an OLED version of the Nintendo Switch is in its crystal-clear screen resolution, slimmer bezel, and vivid colors. This will make capturing Pokémon look much better while you’re on the go. Especially so, if you’re going with the full immersion of owning your very own Nintendo Switch OLED Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition.
