Pokemon Scarlet and Violet OLED Switch Getting Re-Released

Nintendo confirmed that the special Pokemon Scarlet and Violet OLED Switch model is returning to stores. The unique, limited edition Switch will be re-released through both Gamestop and My Nintendo Store from February 24, 2023. The model was originally announced back in September 2022 and released in November 2022, shortly before the games themselves, and is now coming back in limited numbers once again.

The OLED Switch model features a white dock with the Legendary Pokemon Koraidon and Miraidon illustrated in scarlet and violet colors respectively, corresponding with the games they are each found in, while the Switch itself features a ton of designs on the back. These include illustrations of the game’s starter Pokemon, Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly, in the same scarlet color, while logos from around the game, including the game’s schools and gyms are dotted around them in violet. The Joy-Cons also come in the game’s two colors, with each featuring a different school crest from the game.

There don’t appear to be any bundles releasing with either version of the game, as Nintendo’s site confirms the games are sold separately. It will retail for $359.99, and members of the Gamestop Pro program can get early access for pre-orders already.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available now for Nintendo Switch, and the OLED model will return to stores on February 24, 2023.
