Nintendo is set to launch a strikingly red iteration of its Nintendo Switch OLED called the Nintendo Switch OLED Model - Mario Red Edition, available on October 6 for 349.99 USD. However, it's crucial to note that this bundle doesn't come with the upcoming game, Super Mario Wonder, which will be released on October 20.

Here's the trailer:

The eye-catching Mario Red Edition features a docking station and Joy-Cons awash in a bold red hue. It's not just about the color, though; Nintendo has added some neat details for fans. A jumping Mario silhouette decorates the back of the docking station, and when you flip it open, you'll discover a grid of coins where you plug in your cables—a thoughtful touch indeed.

Specs-wise, the Mario Red Edition is a standard Switch OLED, compatible with all Switch games and boasting a vibrant 7-inch OLED display—a noticeable bump from the original 6.2-inch LCD. With 64GB of internal storage and a more robust kickstand, this version is a substantial upgrade from the standard model.

The only drawback? The Nintendo Switch line is reaching its senior years, and a next-gen console may be on the horizon. But for those who frequently use their Switch in handheld mode, this solid-red edition could be worth the upgrade.
