Well, looks like you may not need to wait for early spring for the new Nintendo Switch SKU.
After an ‘incident’ with my launch model, I needed a new Switch to replace my launch model. Wasn’t keen on replacing it with the same model when the new SKU’s were practically around the corner. Took a chance at a local retailer, turns out they had stock sitting in their warehouse, and ended up walking out of there with a brand new one.
Was originally planning on doing another unboxing video but to be honest, it is packaged IDENTICALLY to the original model, which we covered here on launch, with the only change being the red box.
So if you want to see me lick a switch cart again, you can view the original unboxing video below.
In terms of battery life, I’ve managed just under 6 hours on Zelda: Breath of the wild on a full charge, and only knocked off about 25% battery playing Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 for about 2 -3 hours… A huge upgrade.
