The smaller “budget friendly” Nintendo Switch will launch this fall – report

A new report out of Japan states the Nintendo Switch budget model will launch this fall.

Rumors of a smaller, more budget friendly Nintendo Switch surfaced in March, and Japanese newspaper Nikkei this particular sku will launch in fall 2019. Just in time for Christmas, then.

Previous reports stated the Switch ‘mini’ version wouldn’t connect to televisions or be placed in a dock. This is due to it being only a “handheld” system similar to 2DS; however, Nikkei’s report states otherwise.

The report also reiterates a second, Pro model is planned. While this sku won’t see a huge leap in performance, the specs are still an upgrade compared to the current Switch offering (thanks, Games Radar).

Nikkei wasn’t privy to a release window for the more advanced sku, but did state its release was further out.
