Nintendo Switch gets Disney-themed console (but only in Japan)
Oh boy, oh boy!

Jackson Ryan was CNET's science editor, and a multiple award-winning one at that. Earlier, he'd been a scientist, but he realized he wasn't very happy sitting at a lab bench all day. Science writing, he realized, was the best job in the world -- it let him tell stories about space, the planet, climate change and the people working at the frontiers of human knowledge. He also owns a lot of ugly Christmas sweaters.
The special edition console, only available in Japan, features designs based on Disney's insanely popular Tsum Tsum line of sausage-shaped soft toys. The plump images of Stitch, Mickey and Minnie and Winnie the Pooh (I think?) adorn the Switch dock, while the right Joy-Con -- in pink -- features Mickey Mouse ears on the home button.

The console is launching alongside the minigame collection Disney Tsum Tsum Festival on Oct. 10 in Japan. No word, right now, on whether or not we're likely to see it outside Japan, but the bundle will ship for ¥36,000 (around $335).
