Nintendo continues to roll out new color variations for the Nintendo Switch game console. In a recent press release, the company has unveiled a new Nintendo Switch Lite system, boasting a coral pink body color.
The Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller, more affordable variation to the original Nintendo Switch console. With a smaller screen, the Lite is intended as a portable only system. As such, it cannot remove it's "joycons" and it does not function with the Nintendo Switch TV docking station. The trade-off, however, is the $199 price tag, about 33% cheaper than a standard Switch.
When it was initially announced, it came in three colors: grey, yellow, and blue. Now Nintendo is expanding this selection to a fourth color they refer to as coral.
The coral Nintendo Switch Lite console will become available in retailers on April 3, 2020. It will cost the standard $199.99 that a Switch Lite costs and will be available for an indefinite amount of time.
The new color option releases about two weeks after the release of Nintendo's upcoming, limited edition Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch console. This system, releasing about a week before the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, features a blue color scheme and special pattern engraving on the back. Good luck finding one though, the pre-orders have been selling out as fast as they are stocked.
