The Nintendo Switch Lite is a thing now and will be here soon enough. There are four different color options or designs to choose from. I had my go-to color, blue, but then I noticed they’re coming out with a Pokemon design. So… now which one do I get?
I’ve always been a fan of different color and style options when it comes to consoles and the controllers. The majority of my handhelds are the color blue because that’s my favorite color. My Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance are pink though. My DS and 3DS are decorated with stickers because I wanted to add a little extra to the solid color. They’re Pokemon stickers, of course, in case you were wondering.
With the Nintendo Switch, we grabbed whatever console we could since they sold out so quickly. We ended up with the gray Joy-Con and bought the red and blue separately so we had two sets. Then, they came out with red and blue on the opposite sides so you could have a red pair and blue pair. There’s green and pink, which I call the watermelon Joy-Con, and neon yellow. Not to mention there are various skins from Nintendo and people who just happen to be incredibly talented with that stuff. I want it all. Seriously, if I ever get rich, I’m buying different colored Joy-Con.
The Nintendo Switch Lite is being offered in four colors – gray, blue, and yellow. I want the blue to match my other handhelds and it’s my favorite color. Kris wants gray. Then I found out there’s a Pokemon Sword and Shield design. So, we need that one as well. But then that leaves out poor yellow, so we might as well buy that one too. We totally need five different versions of the Switch and a million Joy-Con, right?
I love collecting things, that’s no secret, but it never really bothered me too much until I got older. There are different colors of the Gamecube. We have the purple style, though it wasn’t until much later that I discovered the other colors. I see people on Instagram with so many different variations of the Nintendo 64 that I didn’t know existed. I want them all. I want a display case and showcase all of Nintendo’s handiwork. That would be awesome.
Of course, I’ll be talking about this more in-depth with a certain someone in the near future, but it was something on my mind that I needed to talk about sooner rather than later.
I know I’ll get the blue version of the Nintendo Switch Lite. But I would love to collect different colors and styles. Nintendo needs to stop making things so pretty.
