Pokémon Sword & Shield are Getting a Nintendo Switch Lite Console!
Just as Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite releasing on September 20th, they also announced a new special edition console. Launching in November, the Pokémon Sword & Shield Nintendo Switch Lite will be the first special edition of the console. Available for $199.99 MSRP while supplies last, the console will release on November 8th. That’s one week before the launch of Pokémon Sword & Shield. It should also be noted that neither game is included.
The console will feature a gray, cyan and magenta color scheme, matching both Pokémon titles. The back of the system will also feature the two legendary Pokémon of the game, Zacian and Zamazenta. Dubbed as the Zamian and Zamazenta Edition, this will definitely be a great purchase for a true Pokémon fan. The franchise has been mainly a handheld experience, so releasing a Nintendo Switch Lite console to coincide with the release makes perfect sense.
“November is shaping up to be a big month for Pokémon fans, with the arrival of this special hardware followed by the launch of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games one week later,” says President of Nintendo of America, Doug Bowser. “The Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian and Zamazenta Edition will be a great gift for Pokémon fans who want to play the latest games on the go.”
Pokémon Sword & Shield will launch on November 15th, exclusively to the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite. We have a preview from E3 about our experience with the game, so feel free to check that out. Will you be picking up the Zacian and Zamazenta Edition Nintendo Switch Lite?
