It’s still a pretty new product so it’s gonna take some time for replacement parts to arrive. But considering it’s an OLED display, which are substantially more expensive than LCD, it may be about the same cost to replace the whole console sadly.

Actually contacted Nintendo and they said since I am well within the warranty period they will let me get a repair for free so long as I send it in. Hopefully they just replace the screen but from what they have said they might just send a new system. Hopefully it's the former.

I've gotten it back a second time around December 18th and they have by far the best service I have ever seen. First of all the warranty was able to save me from having to pay the initial $140 dollars for a screen replacement that was stated. When I got it back it was the same console and everything was saved on it when sent back. Secondly they did fix the screen but somehow managed to mess up the audio to have a static ear splitting sound when getting near max volume so that's why I told them the situation and they let me send it back in. Second time they just transferred everything and replaced the entire console. Once I got it back I was extremely careful and put on a glass screen protector before even docking it or setting it down anywhere. So in the end the screen can get replaced by Nintendo themselves and they are amazing.
