New Nintendo Switch design has Super Mario fans fuming

When Nintendo announced a brand new Nintendo Switch this week, it was notable for two reasons. Not only does it mark the very first time the classic Switch has appeared in a new colour, but said colour has been selected in honour of everyone's favourite moustachioed Italian plumber. (We're talking about Super Mario, just in case you have another favourite.)

It might sound like the holy grail of Nintendo Switch consoles, but the more fans saw of the new design, the more disappointed they became. It seems the Mario-themed Switch could just as well be a Spider-man-themed Switch. Or a ketchup-themed Switch. Or, basically, an anything red-themed Switch.
