This price drop comes after around four years on the market, providing another price class for a budget console similarly to what the Nintendo Switch Lite has to offer. The new Nintendo Switch OLED Model, which is set to release on October 8, 2021, is still the premium purchase marketed to consumers, and will no doubt be a day-one purchase alongside Metroid Dread which releases on the same day.
