Nintendo's Mario Day Switch console is pretty baffling

Rumours about a special edition Nintendo Switch console for Mario Day on March 10 have been doing the rounds for a while, and this week they were finally confirmed. But while we weren't holding our breath for an upgraded version of the console, the announced has still managed to majorly disappoint Nintendo fans.

That this wasn't the much-rumoured Switch Pro (or Switch 2) was no surprise – that's rumoured to be arriving at the end of this year. But we at least expected a new colourway for the OLED version of the Switch. Instead, we're getting a standard Switch that's slightly less Mario-ified than 2021's special edition. Really, Nintendo?
