Following plenty of speculation from fans, Nintendo finally announced the arrival of the Nintendo Switch OLED Model late Tuesday night.

While the new console isn't set to release into stores until 8 October, a handful of Aussie retailers are already offering it up for pre-order.

Though there's little differentiation on the $539 price point, some stores are offering additional pre-order perks, such as price guarantee, free shipping and click and collect.

Scroll on to see your available options or see our guide on everything we know so far about the OLED Model.

1. Amazon

Amazon Australia has just opened pre-orders for both OLED Model colourways and the compatible carry case and screen protector bundle.

Currently, Amazon is offering delivery on the day of the launch, free shipping on either console and payment through buy now pay later service Zip.

It also has a pre-order price guarantee, which means the price you're charged will be the lowest price offered by Amazon between the time you placed your order and the end of the day of the release date.

Why you should pre-order the Nintendo Switch OLED Model

While the OLED Model isn't hugely different from the original console, there's still a strong likelihood of it selling out come 8 October.

Due to an ongoing chip shortage as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, video game console production is struggling to meet demand. This means that you're better off securing your order early, in case the next batch is delayed.

It's also worth noting that for several years after the first Nintendo Switch was released, it was selling out at peak periods like Christmas, so if you're hoping to gift an OLED Model this year, pre-order is the way to go.
