In I’m not surprised news; the Nintendo Switch Mini could come sooner than later. I say I’m not surprised because Nintendo loves to release annual hardware refreshes instead of games. Reports claim that the Nintendo Switch is “too big” for children. Because of that reason Citigroup thinks that Nintendo will drop a Nintendo Switch Mini as soon as 2019.
With their goal of being a mobile hybrid console, I could see this being a thing. The Nintendo Switch may fit in your backpack, but It’d be nice to see it fit in our pockets. That could be achieved by making the screen smaller. Most smartphones are 5 inches these days, and I have no problem gaming on those. Take a 5-inch screen and attach the joy cons and we might have something! Let is run 3DS cartridges and that’d be flames!
The only problem with that setup would be the heat. Where would the fan go? I could see a Switch Mini overheating in people’s laps. That’s the last thing we need. Either way, none of this is confirmed. I guess this rumor is catching traction because Citigroup, are prominent analyst in the industry. The time we will tell my friends.
