If you’ve been holding out on upgrading your Nintendo Switch, now might be a great time. Nintendo has announced a new Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition Switch OLED Model ($359.99). It’s launching on November 4.

The Joy-Con feature the game’s signature colors: scarlet and violet, as well as the school emblems of the Naranja and Uva academies from each game.

The back of the system is plastered with a youthful graffiti style of symbols found in the games, including pictures of the three starter Pokémon, in matching scarlet and violet on a black background.

The Switch dock is white, and features the legendary Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon on the front, and the corner of a Poké Ball on the back.

The Switch OLED Model first launched last year. It features a larger, sharper 7-inch OLED screen. It also includes a much larger 64 GB storage size, and enhanced audio. Like the original Switch, the OLED Model is capable of playing on a TV with the included dock, or on the go in tabletop mode or with attached Joy-Con.

The Nintendo Switch OLED Model Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition (whew) will release on November 4. It also includes an AC adapter and HDMI cable.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will release on November 18. It’s rated E for Everyone.
