Pretty awesome right? But this is definitely going to be a hard console to get your hands on. We expect collectors and price-gougers to be fighting tooth and nail for this version of the Switch.

Of course, special edition consoles are nothing new, but what makes this leak interesting is that it clearly contradicts an earlier rumor suggesting that the Switch 2 would be released with the new Zelda. Clearly that isn't happening, and so we might see the Switch 2's release date being pushed back into 2024.

So far Nintendo are yet to respond to the leak or confirm its veracity. We will update you as soon as we hear more, until then, check out the competition Zelda TotK will be facing this year for GOTY!
