After months of Nintendo Switch 2 and the Nintendo Switch Pro rumors, Nintendo revealed the next version of it’s hybrid console in the Nintendo Switch OLED model.

Retailers that will be offering the new systems include stores like Best Buy, Target, GameStop, Walmart, Nintendo, Amazon, and more. Basically, all major retailers, which hopefully makes the purchasing process smooth for gamers looking to score the OLED.
