Imagining The Nintendo Switch In Different Colors [Update: And Themes]

The Nintendo Switch shown in the console’s debut trailer is grey. This being Nintendo, though, you can be sure that other shades and variations will be coming.

TheGrumpyCat decided to get out ahead of Nintendo’s marketing and mock up a range of Switches. White ones, red ones, there are even Famicom and NES variants, throwback designs that Nintendo often returns to a few years down the line when trying to wring some more cash out of their biggest fans.

Most are pretty nice! But if Nintendo really wants to make some money, they’ll release that yellow one...

My family grew up very poor, so we got a ton of gaming stuff second hand, or broken from neighbors. SInce my twin brother and I have a birthday very close to christmas, we usually shared a gift if it wasn’t clothes. On christmas day, My aunt surprised us with an N64 with a purple controller, with some of her bonus, and I felt so happy, though I also felt that we didn’t deserve it. A part of me felt that gift was too much for my twin brother and I to be gifted.

TLDR; Looking at those colorways brought back memories, and now I need to call my aunt and thank her for making me a gamer.
