The updated Nintendo Switch model will go on sale in Japan on Friday August 30, the platform holder has confirmed.
VGC’s Astral Chain review calls the title “a one of a kind combat experience and Platinum’s most well-rounded adventure to date.” See what other critics thought of the game in our Astral Chain review round-up.
Nintendo’s official estimate for the new Switch’s battery life is between 4.5 and 9 hours, compared to the original model’s 2.5 to 6.5 hours, and 3 to 7 hours offered by the upcoming Switch Lite.
The new Switch model also features a slightly improved display, with the screen both brighter and closer to true light balance in tone, tests have suggested.
Nintendo will launch new Joy-Con colours, in the form of a blue/neon yellow set and a neon purple/neon orange pair, on October 4, priced at $79.99/£69.99.
