The Nintendo Switch console gets hot.

Are you using the console in a place that may be too hot?

  • If the surrounding temperature is too hot, the console may overheat. The console should be used in a place where the temperature is between 5 and 35°C. Stop using the console if it becomes too hot while playing in handheld mode, as this may lead to skin burns.

    The console may become hot during charging or when it's being used in TV mode, but this is normal and should not be considered a defect.
