The Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch is kind of ugly

Ah, the Nintendo Switch. The console has been on the market since 2017, and since then we have seen a number of different variations of the device, from the Pokémon Let's Go Switch to the Super Mario Bros Switch – but its latest edition might be the ugliest yet.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for an interesting variation of the Switch (the Let's Go Evee Switch has my whole heart) but the Splatoon 3 design for the Nintendo Switch OLED feels a little too garish. With vibrant gradients and contrasting colours, I can see how the console suits the colourful and high-energy game, but I'm not a fan of the busy design. If you still haven't got your mitts on a Switch, then make sure you check out our roundup of the best Nintendo Switch deals.
