“This is a Nintendo Switch and this is the worlds largest, fully functional, Nintendo Switch. Every single button works!” said Pick via his official YouTube channel.

“I really like the Nintendo Switch It’s small, it’s portable… but it’s really easy to lose and for me that was a problem… So I decided to fix that by making something that was a little bit larger, and just a little bit harder to lose,” he added.

If you are one of those people who wants to know how he made it, here are other details you should know.

To carve the woods, he used drills, hacksaws, and grinders to chip off the excess parts and replicate the actual shape of the usual Nintendo Switch console. For the screen, the content creator opted for a 4K display that will be used to play available games for the popular gaming gadget.

He confirmed that a user could play various titles using his enormous console since it has a giant switch, joycons, and an external pro controller that are functioning just like the normal device.

For those who are curious, its actual size is 30 inches by 70 inches, and it weighs around 30 kilograms. This means that his creation is 650 times bigger than the usual Nintendo Switch console.

Since it is heavy, the players need to put it on the ground so that they can properly use it.

Can you buy it?

If you are one of those Nintendo Switch fans that are interested in buying the giant console, then there’s sad news for you since Pick confirmed that he would not sell it for any price. But he did say that he gave it to Saint Jude’s Hospital.
