We gamers have spent years dreaming of taking our console out and about so that we can finally game in the sun, and with the Nintendo Switch, that dream became a reality.
The original Switch was an excellent console but lacked the battery life to make it a must-bring to the beach or on the plane when travelling.
But now we have the Nintendo Switch Lite, a smaller, more refined upgrade to the Switch, with a longer battery that makes it perfect for those long sessions away from home.
You can’t connect your Switch Lite to the TV like you could with the old Switch but that’s a small sacrifice to make for this great new console. The Switch Lite is more affordable, has a wider selection of colours and is a great way to experience some of Nintendo’s best games on a handheld device.
There are a bunch of deals and offers available from a bunch of retailers that will help you get a Switch Lite for cheap, so check out all the best offers we found online and save yourself a few quid.
GAME has a bunch of offers on the Switch Lite, including some super-cool skins and bundles that can let you customise your console to make it unique.
Like the Nintendo Switch Lite – Zacian and Zamazenta Edition, which has case art from the upcoming Pokemon: Sword and Shield game on the Switch. It costs £199.99, which is more expensive than the Switch, but that’s because it comes in a cool grey, and the two new legendary Pokemon are etched into the back of the console.
If you want the regular colours of the Switch Lite – Yellow, Grey, Turquoise – you can pick one up from GAME for £199.99.
Bundle up with Mario Kart for £229, or bundle up with Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield for £244.99 each.
The Switch Lite is also available directly from the official Nintendo store for the same price – £199.99.
All three colours cost the same, including the Zacian and Zamazenta edition of the Switch Lite, but there are a few other bundles that might help you save money.
For example, you can get the Nintendo Switch Lite Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield Pack, which includes the Switch Lite, the Pokemon games, a little Pokemon figurine and a carry case to protect your Switch Lite when taking it out and about.
You can bundle up your new Switch lite with other games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Super Mario Odyssey for the same price.
It isn’t much of a discount, but Amazon is selling the Switch Lite for a whopping £1.50 less than the other retailers right now.
The console itself costs £198.49 right now, and you can get free next-day delivery if you’re signed up to Amazon Prime.
Again, there are a bunch of bundles to help you save money, like this pack that includes a Switch Lite with 12-months Nintendo Switch Online subscription to help you play online. This costs £216.48 right now, which is a pretty impressive deal.
Or partner up your new Switch Lite with a 256GB MicroSDXC UHS-I card to help you store more games on your console.
