Nintendo is pushing a brand new, yellow color to its Switch console. Technically speaking, it is the joy cons which are receiving the color but since they form most of the body of the console, it is all the same. This increases the number of choices available from gray, blue, or red to now include yellow as well.
The yellow joy cons can be purchased separately for $80. Nintendo has also announced the launch of a brand new battery pack that is expected to significantly boost the battery life of the system and allow for longer game plays.
