The official Nintendo Customer Support Twitter feed tweeted today to remind gamers that condensation may form on the console if there is a sudden change in temperature where the console is placed. If condensation occurs, turn off the power and place it in a warm room until the water droplets dry.
Nintendo has also previously warned players that the Switch handheld if left unused and uncharged for a long period of time, may cause the lithium battery to deteriorate and not recharge, so players are encouraged to recharge their Switch at least once every six months.
According to the latest VGChartz estimates of console sales, the Nintendo Switch has sold over 118.2 million units worldwide as of December 3, 2022.
