The new color comes out on the same day as the release of the new Nintendo adventure video game Miitopia.
Nintendo is also releasing New Pokémon Snap on April 30 for its family of Switch systems. The game was inspired by the 1999 Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap and allows gamers to photograph Pokémon across several islands as part of an ecological survey.
The Switch Lite is a compact and lightweight counterpart to the Switch and is specifically designed for handheld usage. The system works with compatible games that support handheld mode, and does not come with Joy-Con controllers.
The Japanese gaming company has recently seen a number of major successes, including the opening of Japan’s Super Nintendo World in March.
