The popularity of the Nintendo Switch skyrocketed at the beginning of the pandemic, when we were all looking for fun, enjoyable ways to pass the time. Nearly two years later, its popularity hasn't wavered, with tons of new games, upgrades and special editions being released. The Nintendo Switch isn't just for hardcore gamers—it's perfect for the gaming newbie, for young kids and for anyone looking to disconnect for a bit.

The upgraded Nintendo Switch features a 7-inch OLED screen, and it's equipped with a wide adjustable stand, a dock, 64GB of internal storage and enhanced audio. This version has detachable gaming controls for Tabletop mode, too, making it easy to play with friends and family.

'Worth the upgrade'

This new-and-improved Nintendo Switch is an upgrade from the one launched in 2019 — and plenty of Best Buy Canada shoppers say it's worth upgrading.

“I got rid of my OG Switch … to upgrade to the OLED model,” one shopper said. “Since I did, I've been playing it daily and absolutely loving it.”

“A full inch more in screen space alone is a massive improvement, but getting the better colour depth and dark blacks of the OLED screen truly makes for an impressive experience,” they continued.

Another shopper agreed, adding that this model is worth the upgrade for existing Switch owners, or worth the additional $50 (vs. the non-OLED model) if you're a first-time buyer.

“Better speakers, kickstand, small upgrade in storage, also with a redesigned dock,” the shopper wrote. “And, of course, the OLED screen is bright and bigger … Great for handheld players.”
