Nintendo has announced a new blue model Nintendo Switch Lite. The fresh color option releases May 21 for $200. Nintendo is launching the blue Nintendo Switch Lite alongside Miitopia, the remastered version of the 3DS role-playing game starring (of course) Mii characters. Preorders for the blue Nintendo Switch Lite aren’t live yet, but we will make sure to add preorder details to this article as soon as they are available.
The blue Nintendo Switch Lite has a darker tone than the other four Switch Lite options. Nintendo initially launched the Switch Lite with three colors: gray, yellow, and turquoise. A coral model joined the lineup in 2020. While Switch stock in general was limited for much of last year, the coral Switch Lite was fairly challenging to find in stock around launch. It will be interesting to see if the blue model is readily available.
