Since the console’s launch, The Switch has had a few interesting bundles, but nothing remotely as awesome as what MakdoMod revealed earlier this week. The master craftsman has completed work on a Sheikah-inspired Legend of Zelda-themed Nintendo Switch console, and the amount of detail that’s gone into the project is utterly breath of the wild taking.
The joycon controllers are painted with a texture that makes it resemble wood, the dock resembles carved mason work, and the screen itself is practically a gold-rimmed Sheikah tablet. You can drool over every last inch of the custom console in the video below, then read on for more good news.
Truly astounding. The buttons are even written with the glyphs. They also look like wood carvings, but don’t worry, everything about this Switch system is fully functional. MakoMod started with a brand new Nintendo Switch, and it’s all in working order. And guess what? It’s for sale!
That’s right, MakoMod is selling the Sheikah Switch to the highest bidder on eBay. Now don’t get too excited, ‘cuz you’re not getting away with it before coughing up a hefty sum. The current bid as of this writing is 620 Euros, or $705, with 42 bids. That amount is only the current bid, not necessarily the highest.
MakoMod is based in Spain, and he’s got a reviewer score of 100%, so no worries on that end. If you do intend to bid on this marvel, best hurry up – less than a week remains.
That’s not all MakoMod’s got to offer. There’s a Boo’s Mansion NES mod, a whole bunch of Final Fantasy consoles, a Metal Gear Solid PS2, and a Medieval PS1 mod. Check out the list of stuff here. Just be aware – nothing there compares to the Sheikah Switch, except maybe that Boo’s Mansion NES, which also happens to be the most expensive thing there. Boo.
