The Nintendo Switch OLED model is just weeks away from its official launch – the big day's 8th October, if you were wondering – and the very first unboxing video for the system is now live.

The super-popular Japanese YouTuber HikakinTV has been given the honours, not only unboxing the system for our viewing pleasure but also showing off some 'over-the-shoulder' gameplay. We get to see the likes of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 running on the system, although it's worth noting that seeing the new OLED screen in the flesh will be a very different experience to viewing it on video.

Take a look here:

The Switch OLED has been spotted in the wild a couple of times now as we get ever closer to its launch next month. If you're wanting to get your hands on one, plenty of pre-order options are available.
