To celebrate the launch of a Disney Tsum-Tsum game, Nintendo is releasing a special version of the Nintendo Switch that comes with Tsum-Tsum theming. It's only set to hit store shelves in Japan right now, but it's adorable.
Coinciding with the launch of Tsum-Tsum Festival on October 10, the new Switch comes with special Joy-Cons and a special dock to really capture the Tsum-Tsum spirit. Tsum-Tsums are collectible stuffed characters, featuring Disney classics like Mickey, Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, and more.
The Tsum-Tsum Switch also has special Joy-Cons, featuring not only their own color scheme but a pattern as well. Also, check out the Home button on the right Joy-Con: it's Mickey! Hopefully this is a sign of more special edition Switch and Joy-Con bundles to come.
Since it's coming out in October, this will likely be the upgraded Nintendo Switch base model, complete with improved battery life. Nintendo also recently announced a portability-focused Switch Lite, though it doesn't look like it'll get a Tsum-Tsum version.
While the special Joy-Cons are cool, prospective owners should hope theirs aren't affected by the notorious drift issues that have plagued Joy-Cons. A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Nintendo over the Joy-Con issue, and recently, a report said Nintendo is instructing its customer service to fix the drift issues for free and refund those with proof of purchase and receipt.
Hopefully there are backups of these special edition Tsum-Tsum Joy-Cons. There's no word yet on a U.S. release for the special version of the Nintendo Switch.
Thanks, The Verge.
