Nintendo has launched its $359.99 Switch OLED console with a special Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom-inspired design. Now, the wait isn’t long for the hotly-anticipated game, which is coming on May 12. Just note that the $69.99 game does not come included with this Switch OLED.

Based on the spotty availability of previous special edition Switch consoles, it’s possible that stock of the console could be in very short supply if you skipped pre-ordering one. And considering that Tears of the Kingdom is set to be a huge launch, it’s possible that many long-time Switch owners who have pushed off the OLED upgrade may finally choose to jump on it with this model. Or, who knows? Maybe stock won’t be an issue at all.

While this particular Switch OLED design is very cool, it’s functionally identical to other Switch OLED consoles. In case you’re not aware of what this model provides, their seven-inch OLED screen is bigger (and much more contrasty and glorious to look at) than the regular Switch’s 6.2-inch LCD screen. Additionally, the Switch OLED has twice the amount of internal storage (64 GB versus 32 GB), a better kickstand, and louder speakers. All else — including performance, the Joy Con controllers that it can use, and battery life. — is similar to the standard Switch.
