Nintendo unveils the Switch Lite “Pokemon Sword and Shield” special edition

Now this is hella tempting!

ONE Store Beta Now Available

Last night’s surprise reveal of the Switch Lite was big news, though Nintendo didn’t just stop there. Aside from unveiling the standard edition of the console, Nintendo also showed us a “Pokemon Sword and Shield” special edition of the Switch Lite.

The special edition Switch Lite will be practically the same unit as the standard Switch Lite, but with a unique design. the Switch Lite Pokemon Edition will come in a light grey color with blue and red analog sticks + buttons. The back of the unit will also feature art of the Pokemon Sword and Shield legendaries, Zacian and Zamazenta.

This won’t be the first time that Nintendo releases a Pokemon-themed Switch. Last year, Nintendo released the Pikachu & Eevee Special Edition Switch. Though unlike last year’s special edition, the Switch Lite Pokemon model will not include a copy of Pokemon Sword & Shield.

Because of this, the Switch Lite Pokemon edition will be priced at USD $199 (around PHP 10,213) — the same price as the standard Switch Lite. This special version of the console will be released on November 8, 2019, a week ahead of the Sword & Shield launch.

Missed the Switch Lite announcement? The new version of Nintendo’s console will be a portable-only device, meaning it won’t be able to connect to your TV/display. Find out more about the Switch Lite here:
