Is anyone else picking up a Switch Lite?

Recommended Posts

As fellow TamaTalkers might have heard, Nintendo will be releasing a minor revision of the Switch at the end of September, known as the Switch Lite.

The Switch Lite is not dockable and will be handheld-mode only, and has been created in response to just how many people play in handheld-mode on the existing model, though it can also be paired with external wireless controllers as well if need be.

It'll be launching in grey, turquoise, and yellow, and there'll also be a limited-edition design based around the Pokemon Sword & Shield legendaries, Zacian and Zamazenta.

I pretty much exclusively play my Switch in handheld-mode, so moving over to a Switch Lite makes good sense for me, and I plan on picking up a yellow one. Will anybody else be doing the same? If so, which colour will you be picking up, or are you hoping to see a particular look offered before you go for it?

This is great!

I was really hesitant to get a Switch when it first came out, but I think they did a good job by making it a handheld mode only, which suits me and so many others. Will definitely consider buying the Turquoise one! :blink:

Not for me, since I have this odd thing where I have to enjoy something at the biggest screen possible, so I usually try to play my Switch on the docked mode otherwise I feel like I'm "missing out". I guess I'm kind of an excessive person and I always try to get something with the largest amount of features possible, I'm not proud of it lol

That said, I'm happy that Nintendo made one. Wish it was cheaper than it is though, it's only like 100$ cheaper? But guess it's understandable. A lot of people who couldn't afford the original or didn't find the concept too accessible can get one now! That does make me happy.

Since I have sworn to get every Animal Crossing hardware out there, if the bundled hardware with New Horizons happens to be Switch Lite, I will get it. The original plan was to get the hardware bundle and sell my original Switch to a friend, but it will be Lite I will keep both of them. The original Switch isn't all that handheld friendly considering how huge it is so I would use the Lite for trips where I'd be too nervous to take my normal Switch.

I will definitely get myself a Nintendo Switch Lite!!
I'm more of a handheld person, and I like that it's a cheaper alternative to the original Switch. [I am a broke soul...😔]

I like the colors that they have atm, but I do hope they'll come out with more! Would love to see one in purple or in pink!
But the plan when it comes out is to go for the turquoise!!

I'm really digging that yellow color because... cheese. :P
Whatever switch I end up getting will pretty much be an Animal Crossing machine, so no real need to hook it up to the TV. The only reason I'd want to take the controllers off would be because I have chronic pain and keeping my arms still makes it worse. Well, I still have months to decide.

      I've noticed lately that a number of TamaTalk regulars are fans of the Kirby series, myself included (heck, my favourite nostalgic Tamagotchi moment is directly linked to the Kirby series!), so I figured that I'd make a thread for us to chat about this wonderful series from HAL Laboratory and Nintendo.
      It's been almost 18 months since the last mainline game, which was Kirby Star Allies for the Nintendo Switch (one of my favourite entries in the series, and also one of my favourite 2D platformers of all time from any series - and I've played rather a lot of those, so that's high praise), so it feels to me like we're due for a new side-game sometime soon. I'm really looking forward to seeing what we'll get next, since the Kirby side-games are usually interesting.
      Personally, I'd love to see a new Kirby pinball game, as there hasn't been one in years, and I'm quite fond of pinball.

      I managed to get my scanner to work so this time I didn't have to take a picture of a picture!
       
      For those who don't get it, allow me to explain, though it'll contain minor spoilers. Mallow is a character from the SNES game Super Mario RPG. Separated from his parents as a baby, he was raised by frogs and so grew up believing he was a frog. Eventually he learns he's not really a frog (which is pretty obvious since he looks nothing like one, he can't jump for beans, and he's able to control the weather) and he travels alongside Mario to find his real parents.
       
      Since Mallow once believed he was a frog I figured why not stick him in the old Frog Suit from Super Mario Bros. 3? I was actually surprised to see no one had done this before.
