Seeing that the OLED Switch is about to ship on October 8, the editor of the main site also got the opportunity to simply play with this new machine. As the name suggests, the main improvement this time is the 7-inch OLED screen, which is larger than the original 6.2-inch LCD. Although the colleague at the scene could not directly compare the old Switch next to the new Switch, she could still feel that the brightness of the OLED Switch was brighter and the picture looked more transparent and beautiful.
The demo game provided by Lao Ren is “Metroder: Fear”, which will be released on the same day as the new Switch. You can basically regard it as the “first game” of OLED Switch. Given that there are many dark and claustrophobic scenes in this work, it is indeed very suitable to use it to show the advantages of OLED in display. Of course, you will be able to play this game on Switch and Switch Lite in the future, but it feels that the picture in handheld mode should be inferior to that of OLED Switch.
As for the basic form of the console, it still looks like that, but the weight has increased, and the volume and power buttons on the top have become narrower. However, the colleague at the main station said that she did not find it difficult to press, and the experience should be different for different people. It is worth mentioning that the bracket of the OLED Switch can be opened to take up more than half of the backplane. In addition to providing a more stable support, it can also be fixed at any angle. In actual operation, it will be a little more difficult to open than in the past, but considering the practicality this “sacrifice” is acceptable.
In addition, the main station colleagues also like the black and white panda color scheme of the new machine very much, but more experience may have to wait for the real machine to test before sharing. For players who are still hesitant to buy or upgrade to this version, it is best to be patient and then make a decision.
