Nintendo has announced that it has revised the Nintendo Switch system to incorporate a larger battery for longer playtime. You’ll be able to purchase this edition towards the end of August in North America and early September in Europe. You’ll be about to tell the difference from the existing Switch system by the red box art (as you see in the image below). There will also be new Joy-Con colors which you can see in the tweet below.
This new model – still just named Nintendo Switch – will boast anywhere from 4.5 to nine hours of battery depending on the game you play. For Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll get 5.5 hours play. That compares to just 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery for the current standard Nintendo Switch model (about three hours for Zelda)
Customize your #NintendoSwitch even more with these new Joy-Con colors – Blue/Neon Yellow and Neon Purple/Neon Orange. Available beginning 10/4 for $79.99. #MyWayToPlay pic.twitter.com/231TcnnTG2— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) July 17, 2019
