Frightful Nintendo Switch modification is hurting our eyes

After a long weekend of live blogging about the whereabouts of the Switch stock in the US, the last thing we expected to see today was another Switch. But lo and behold, here we are, although we have to admit to not being particularly keen on the design of this new mod.

Up-Switch has released a Switch screen modification that is 188% bigger than the size of the original Nintendo design. The new screen is made to make portable play even more accessible and immersive, however, we can't help but feel a little unnerved by the new Joy-Con to screen ratio. The design is currently being crowdfunded but it's already had 271 backers, who have paid a minimum of $249 to get their hands on one of the mods when production starts.
