Nintendo Switch: Beware of the heat wave, it can be fatal for your console!

While summer is well and truly here and we are going through a fairly... tense heat wave, if you were thinking of dipping your feet in the sand at the water's edge, with your Nintendo Switch to pass the time, strongly avoid using your console in this heat!

Nintendo Switch: Beware of the heat wave, it can be fatal for your console!

As video game players, we know it only too well, but our consoles are still quite fragile and they must be handled with care, especially in these periods of high heat. When we turn on our consoles in the summer, they tend to heat up much faster, and Nintendo was keen to alert Nintendo Switch players through various tweets about precautions to take .

Nintendo recommends advice during the heat wave period

At the time of writing, while France is going through a fairly exceptional heat wave, in Japan, the heat is also present with temperatures around 30 degrees. As a result, it is sometimes tempting to want to go relax by the water with the console in hand, or to stay cool at home to be able to enjoy our favorite console on our television.

However, if you want to play without fear of damaging your Switch, you must follow the valuable advice of the Japanese firm . According to the manufacturer, you must in fact ensure " good ventilation around the air inlet and exhaust vents ", because if something is in front of these inlets, it will drastically increase the temperature of the console, and especially much more than normal .

Moreover, this may seem obvious to some but less so to others, but avoid "sticking" your machine near a wall if it is in a TV cabinet, and also avoid at the same time lock up when she's on her way.

However, if your console reaches too high a temperature, be sure, Nintendo has made sure that it displays a message alerting you that it is about to shut down.

A new model is coming!

Speaking of summer and Nintendo Switch, here is good news for fans of the Japanese firm but also for fans of Splatoon. No, it's not the arrival of the Nintendo Switch Pro, but a special model like Splatoon 3.

Indeed, the manufacturer has announced the release of the special Splatoon 3 OLED Switch for the month of August 2022 and more precisely on August 26th. Unfortunately, at the time of writing these lines, we still do not know its price, but it will not arrive alone! It will indeed be accompanied by some colorful accessories such as a controller and a pocket to store your Switch. Enough to welcome the title which will be published next September.
