New Nintendo Switch Lite Blue Version Revealed (VIDEO)
While the Nintendo Switch has received a parade of spiffy-looking console variants of the years, so too has Big N’s sister device, the all-in-one Nintendo Switch Lite handheld. Having already debuted a lovely Coral Pink console in the past, Nintendo has now unearthed another subtle color variant with its new blue Nintendo Switch Lite.

Announced in a recent announcement post, the new blue version of the Nintendo Switch Lite was revealed to be released on May 21st for the price of $199.99 USD. Coinciding with the new hardware, the vibrant adventure title Miitopia was posed as being a fitting companion to the blue console, as the title is set to release on the very same day. As per the Nintendo announcement:
By expanding the existing range of color options for the system, which includes coral, yellow, gray and turquoise, the blue Nintendo Switch Lite gives you more options to express your personal gaming style wherever you choose to play.”
While the Switch doesn’t yet have the obvious companion game of Pokémon Blue, there’s also plenty of killer blue-hued goodness to complement Nintendo’s portable new device, including April’s release of New Pokémon Snap, the upcoming port of Maneater, or perhaps even SEGA’s own blue blur Sonic The Hedgehog. Of course, with YouTube available on the system, one could also fire up Eiffel 65’s “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” for maximum blue vibes.
