The Smaller, Cheaper Nintendo Switch Set For Fall, ‘Enhanced’ Model Pushed Back

The Verge (Translating Nikkei):

Nintendo’s rumored cheaper version of the Switch is set to be released this fall, according to a report in Japan’s Nikkei newspaper. As previously reported, the device is said to be smaller and geared around portable play, but Nikkei says it will retain the ability to be hooked up to a TV.

A more powerful “next-generation” version with a major redesign is further off, according to today’s report, although it’s not clear from the language whether Nikkei is referring to the enhanced Switch model that The Wall Street Journal has reported is likely to be coming this year.

There was a (now removed) leak yesterday of what appeared to be the body of this smaller, portable only Switch (think the 2DS to Nintendo’s 3DS) – I could see it selling well.

Me, I’m just waiting to see what the “enhanced” model brings.
