Nintendo’s hybrid platform, the Nintendo Switch, comes with an official Dark Theme and here’s how you activate it.

By default, the Switch is set to Nintendo’s basic light theme, but Nintendo has also supplied a ‘Dark Mode’ for its hybrid platform which might suit you and your eyes better. Personally, I find the default Light Mode too bright and the Dark theme is more relaxing to me eyes. In addition, the Switch’s Dark Mode matches better with my hardware setup at home.

While most Switch owners will probably know about Nintendo’s Dark Theme, there are some users who don’t look through the platform’s system settings. As such, we’ve included instructions on how to activate the Nintendo Switch Dark Mode down below:
