Wondering why Nintendo took so long to reveal the Nintendo Switch Lite?
In a recent interview with The Verge, Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser explained why Nintendo waited until now to announce the redesign. In particular, much of it has to do with the games releasing soon:
“We believe the timing is right when we have momentum. This is the perfect opportunity for us to offer more choices, and to bring more consumers into Nintendo Switch in the third year. When you tie that with the software that we just announced at E3, we’ve got a perfect opportunity as we head into the holiday.”
This falls in line with what Nintendo is offering in the months to come. Namely, the Switch Lite will debut on 20 September 2019 – the same day as The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Switch. Likewise, a Pokemon edition of the Switch Lite is releasing just one week before Pokemon Sword and Shield launch in November 2019.
