There are two colours available for the Nintendo Switch OLED controllers: white or neon red/blue. The white controllers come with a white dock, while the red/blue controllers include a black dock.
As for game compatibility? “Nintendo Switch system (OLED model) is compatible with the full library of Nintendo Switch games. However, the system will not cleanly fit within all the design parameters of the Nintendo Labo series,” explains Nintendo. “There may also be games where the game experience may differ due to the new capabilities of the console, such as the larger screen size,” added the company.
The Nintendo Switch OLED release date in Canada is October 8, 2021, the same day as the release of Metroid Dread. The company announced details of the refreshed gaming console earlier this month.
