Rumors have been circulating for some time that Nintendo was planning a pair of hardware revisions for the Nintendo switch, and at least one of them – a cheaper version – could be launched as early as this year. The idea of such systems would not be really surprising given the history of Nintendo that offers new iterations of its game hardware. The E3 came without any word of such a device , but out of nowhere, Nintendo has now confirmed one of these supposed systems. It's called Switch Switch and is available later this fall.
This will not replace the existing switch model. The most notable solution, aside from the lower price of $ 200, is that it can not be connected to a television, making it a fully portable device. This has major implications for its purpose and the way in which certain games can be played, especially those that rely on dissociating Joy-Cons from the system. And although we do not yet know everything about the system (for example, it remains to know exactly how you can or can not move between different Switch systems), we know a lot about the Lite, and you can follow with all our cover below. We will continue to develop this as we learn more.
Meanwhile, the existing switch will receive an update, if new FCC filings are an indication. This does not necessarily mean that significant improvements or changes have been made to this model, but it is possible that slight improvements will be made before the release of the more powerful switch, it is said. For more information, check out our recap on when and why Nintendo is updating its hardware.
