Nintendo Reveals Release Date for Pokemon Sword And Shield on Switch

Other than that, fans of Nintendo will be happy to know of the release date of Nintendo Switch Lite.

The key feature to classify the Switch Lite as a separate console from the Nintendo Switch is the handheld dedication. The Nintendo Switch Lite is more portable than the Switch. It can be fit into your jacket or pocket. Unlike the Nintendo Switch, the lite doesn’t come fitted with Joy Cons. Instead, the controls are attached to the console itself.

This is only setting up the field for the release of Nintendo Switch 2 sometimes in 2020. We expect that we will have to wait for at least six months before an official date for the release is announced.
