Nintendo Considers Switch Mini Variant For Even More Portable Gaming

Therefore, they believe that in order to reach that segment of the market in a more refined manner, a "Mini Switch" variant of the device could be launched in fiscal year 2019, some time during the March period when the Switch was launched earlier this year.

As much as I love the Nintendo Switch and the weird console-handheld hybrid thing its got going on, there are some things I feel like the system is now lacking. However, some younger fans have found the console too big and heavy for them, which has led Nintendo to think about making a lighter smaller version.

The Nintendo Switch's record-setting release has made it the talk of the industry for obvious reasons, including speculations for what the Japanese company'll do as a followup act. We could also see no way that the dock could scratch the Switch's screen through clumsy insertions or extractions. The Switch is officially Nintendo's fastest selling game console to date.

The $499.99 priced Switch bundles includes the Switch Console, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (Physical Copy), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass (Digital Download), and a SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSD Card with Adapter. It is the only AAA title available for the console at launch and a game that would offer hours of fun. Then again, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild nearly certainly had something to do with that success, as it is by far the best-selling Switch game.

SuperData estimated that there were 2.4 million units of the Nintendo Switch sold for the month of March, with the research firm increasing the expected 2017 sales for the hybrid console from 5 million units to 7.2 million units.

Nintendo Switch's portability and HD Rumble provide plenty of pull. The announcement that the Nintendo Switch will debut Minecraft is the most attractive.

Where and How to Find a Unit of the Nintendo Switch?

If you are still confused by the numbers, it is going to be a stunning reveal to know how Nintendo managed to sell more games than the hardware. According to analysts from Citigroup Inc., that next act is to get smaller.

Industry-tracking firm The NPD Group noted yesterday that the Switch sold 906,000 consoles in March in the United States, beating the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
