Mario fans were more than a little disappointed with Nintendo's baffling special-edition Mario Day Switch console back in March. Why not an OLED console? Why was everything grey apart from the red Joy-Cons? 

But it sounds like Nintendo may aim to make up for that in time for the release of Super Mario Bros. Wonder in October. It's been reported that a Nintendo Switch – OLED Model – Mario Red Edition is on the way – and it should look at least a tiny bit more Mariofied than the last offering (see our guide to the best Nintendo Switch deals for the best prices on current models).
