You guys voted for today’s post over on my Twitter account, so I’m being a good blogger and bringing it to you today! 😀 I did also mention in my wish list for November that I had bought this too.. 😛
I decided recently that it would be a good idea to order my own Switch, whether it be the original or the Switch Lite due to Pokemon Sword and Shield coming out, as well as mine and Dane’s upcoming Japan holiday.
I settled on a Switch Lite, especially the limited edition Pokemon Zacian & Zamazenta one! If there is one thing I disliked about the Switch Lite’s when they were released in September is the three colours they came out with. Yellow, turquoise and grey. YUCK! Why not a purple, neon green or red, for example?
So when I saw that the Pokemon edition was grey, cyan and magenta I knew I had found the Switch I was after! I didn’t really want to go for a Switch as me and Dane already own one (it’s his!) which would be sort of pointless. So the Switch Lite was just a better option for me!
I am so excited for so many Switch game releases, including Pokemon Sword and Shield on Friday and Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March 2020.
I already plan to take my Switch Lite with me to Japan and (as sad as it sounds) to work some days for lunchtimes when I want to play Pokemon or Animal Crossing.
So, I’m going to show off what the Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta Edition looks like! You may be thinking about picking this up yourself, or just want to know what a Switch Lite is like in comparison to the Switch.
I hope you enjoy this post today! It won’t be anything special, but I know you guys wanted me to write about it… So I am! 😀
First of all the box it comes in! It’s nothing special but shows on both the front and back what the Switch Lite will look like, both on the front and back. In the box you get your Switch Lite console, as well as a charger. The 3DS never came with a charger, so I’m really pleased that Nintendo learnt from their past mistakes and made sure to supply one with the Switch Lite.
Apart from this, there isn’t much to the box at all! However, the Switch Lite itself is gorgeous, in so many ways.
The Switch Lite is amazing! It’s gorgeous to look at, feels good in the hands (both weight and feel) and is a perfect handheld console.
It’s a light grey colour with accents of both white, cyan and magenta. The cyan and magenta were chosen after the names of the two new legendary Pokemon – Zacian (sword) and Zamazenta (shield). Cyan is blue, magenta is pink. I didn’t really think of this until the Switch Lite arrived on Friday. The cyan and magenta work really well with the light grey colour of the Switch Lite overall and if anything, makes it pop!
A D-Pad has now been added to the left hand side of the Switch Lite, which used to be 4 buttons previously on the Switch. This is the only noticeable thing in all honestly.
Something else I noticed is how much better the ZL and ZR buttons feel on the Switch Lite in comparison to the Switch. They just feel firmer and that little bit more satisfying to press… I hope this makes sense! 😛
Another thing, I don’t know if it’s because my Switch Lite is new, but I’m struggling at the moment to open both the game card slot at the top and the microSD slot at the bottom. This being said, Dane didn’t have an issue when I asked for some help! I think I’m just being too sensitive with my Switch Lite, which makes sense.
On the back of the Switch Lite is a gorgeous design of both the wolf legendary Pokemon, Zacian (sword) and Zamazenta (shield). The outline of both the wolf designs is in a darker grey which pop out of the back of the Switch Lite! It looks amazing and works well with the light grey and white which is on show around them.
My one issue with this however is the fact they could have added each legendary on the same side as their matching colour, instead of the opposite… I know this sounds fussy but in my head it makes sense…
So that’s all I can think to talk about with my Switch Lite! I really love it and have played a little but of Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee! but I have been on the lookout for a small game to play between now and the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Before I wrap up this post I thought I would show off some comparison images of both the Switch and Switch Lite alongside one another!
So! That is the Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta Edition! 😀
To buy this it will set you back £199.99, however I picked mine up from the official Nintendo UK store for £179.99 and I bet yourself wondering how I got it so cheap?
When me and Dane visited the Pokemon Center London (which you can read about here!) we popped upstairs to demo Pokemon Sword and Shield and we were given a new guidebook about Nintendo Switch, which included a 10% discount code for the Nintendo UK store! You can get one of your own by following this link! Fill in your information and you’ll receive one in the post. 🙂
What do you guys think of the Switch Lite that I picked up? 🙂 Do you own a Switch or Switch Lite? What games are your favourite and which are you excited for? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!
Until next time, take care all and I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend! 🙂
