Nintendo needs to hire this guy and put him in charge of Switch hardware color schemes

These Nintendo Switch console designs aren't real - but they should be.


Seriously, why hasn't this guy been snapped up already?

Redditor Dead_Giveaway has given us a glimpse of an alternate reality where the Nintendo Switch can resemble something other than a puppy or a penguin.

In this new world, it can look like the stuff dreams are made of.

I'm lusting after them already. And that's not all - you can check out more designs here and here.

It seems to be surprisingly hard not to stray into garish when mocking up different variants of console designs - yes, I'm thinking about the Audi R8 Xbox One, because that thing has been forever burned into my brain - but these are just lovely.

Whether we'll see faceplate options in reality or a handful of colourways that even come close to this wonderful array is anyone's guess.

In the meantime, my favourite is the Pikmin Switch. Which one would you go for?
