Customizable Nintendo Switches Coming to Japan

Later this month, the Japanese Nintendo Store will begin offering custom-made Switch consoles.

Starting August 22, would-be Nintendo Switch owners will be able to pre-order customizable versions of the console from the Japanese "My Nintendo Store" website. All Switches ordered through this website will be shipped by October 1 of this year, and cannot be canceled once the order is placed. 

Nintendo hasn't given any detail as to what exactly will be customizable on these Switch consoles -- but it's possible that only the Joy-Cons can be altered. There may be custom color options, but there's no solid news about this at the time of writing.

It's also unclear whether or not these customizable Switches will be available in other countries. The console itself is not region locked, nor is the website -- so buyers that are outside of Japan may be able to purchase a customized system for themselves. But there is a chance that these units won't be shipped outside of Japan, or the cost to ship them will be very high.  

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more information as Nintendo releases further details on these customizable Switch consoles and their worldwide availability.
