Pokémon Sword & Shield to get a special Nintendo Switch Lite model | Nintendo Wire

Nintendo just dropped the bombshell that has been a long time coming – the Nintendo Switch is getting a smaller model, and they’re bringing back the “Lite” moniker. With a traditional D-pad, smaller size, and slightly better battery life, it’s already looking like a great alternative for those who won’t mind the lack of docking and Joy-Con features.

Given the fact Pokémon has been a primarily handheld system, it makes quite a bit of sense that Nintendo is getting the new system out with more than enough time to spare before Sword & Shield launch in November. If you’re willing to wait a little longer, though, you’ll be able to pick up a special edition version of the console featuring the new box legendaries Zacian and Zamazenta.


The Zacian and Zamazenta edition will launch November 8th, a week before the games release on November 15th.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
