REVIEW – Nintendo Switch OLED Model

Half a decade ago, Nintendo unveiled the Nintendo Switch, the successor to the Wii U that, unbeknown to us then, would quickly lift them out of the dry patch caused by their struggling console. Not to say that the Wii U was bad, in fact, I absolutely adore mine and hosted some amazing titles, it just didn’t sell very well or got frequent enough support from other developers.

The past five years have seen a range of fantastic titles and a new way to play, touting its ability to be used on a TV screen or on the go. The console also received a hardware variation back in 2019, the Nintendo Switch Lite, which introduced a handheld only console for those always on the go with a smaller budget. In addition to the Lite, a revised model was released earlier that year with an improved battery and more efficient CPU.

This year introduced another new version in the form of the Nintendo Switch OLED Model. This upgrade includes features such as a larger screen, crisper visuals, improved audio, and more. Will this new model shine bright in the hands of gamers, or is it nothing more than a dull glimmer of an upgrade? Find out in our review, after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
