Nintendo announce Nintendo Switch Lite

The GameBoy Color, evolved.

Nintendo have this morning announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, a dedicated handheld console. And it looks pretty.

Similar to the GameBoy Color, DS Lite, and GameBoy Advance SP, this new Switch is smaller, lighter, and comes in a variety of tasteful colours; yellow, grey, turquoise, and Pokemon. I’ve said before what I wanted from an updated Switch and, while this doesn’t tick every box, I’m still very into it.

NZ pricing isn’t yet available, but with an Australian RRP of $329.95, we can probably expect something similar over here for the Switch Lite.

The trade off for the portability and style is the lack of HDMI output; no docking for this little guy. But that’s hardly a deal breaker, and my personal playtime on Switch is about 95% handheld anyway.

The question is less about whether or not to get a Switch Lite, but more about what one you’re going to get, right?
