Nintendo just released a video announcing the switch lite. it's $100 cheaper than a regular switch, but it only plays in handheld mode, the joycons can't be removed, and the motion sensors and HD rumble in the joycons are gone.

I've said this a bunch of times on here already, but if an AC themed switch comes out, I'll be getting it. I prefer handheld mode anyways, so if there's a cheaper AC switch lite, then I guess I'm getting it.

I'll certainly consider it. Once we get closer to the game's release I'll start looking into what options are available.

I will 100% get the Switch Lite, especially if they come out with a bundle. Since WW I've had two consoles so I could have two towns, so I'm psyched to have the option of getting a Switch so I can play NH on a big screen and a Switch Lite to accomplish this, or, since my husband sadly has zero interest in video games, just getting two of the Switch Lites.

On the fence at the moment about getting a Switch Lite. I held off on getting a Switch because AC hadn't been announced and the Switch was more expensive. I do like that the Switch Lite is cheaper, plus I do more handheld gaming anyways, but I'm still not completely sure yet.

I like the idea of another switch, and we plan to buy another one SOMEDAY, buuuut...man, I dont know, theres no connecting to TV. Animal Crossing on the TV is what I've wanted for yearrssss, since City Folk. It was so fun to watch my sister play, and I want my daughter to feel the same. We cant if we get a single system, though, it does maybe mean my husband can have a separate town.

I'm definitely getting a Switch Lite - hubby really wants one. BUT our Switch has seen better days. It no longer reads cartridges and I'm unwilling to send it to Nintendo for repair. Download games play fine, so I'm considering downloading ACNH when it's released, because I was REALLY looking forward to playing on the tv screen again. That being said, if there is an AC bundle for the Switch Lite (and I suspect there will be since they've already announced the Pokémon version for November), I will probably get one.

The Pokemon one doesn't include the game, so it's not really a bundle, just a decal.

I'd really like to get it if there's going to be an AC special edition, but I'm not as gung-ho as I was before the Lite was announced.

Mainly because I've been planning to transfer my data over to the new system and use that as my main, with the old for friends and family. But I'd lose access to the split-screen data on some games, and other games like Taiko no Tatsujin need to be played on screen since I went to the bother of importing a Taiko controller.

Considering how much emphasis they put on 4 people being able to play at the same time on one console, logically if there is to be a special edition, it will be an old-school Switch. But then again, sometimes companies miss the logic train.

Essentially, I'm still on the fence. I have a feeling if I do get a Lite (or a NoSwitch as I've been thinking of it (also GBA XXL )), it will pretty much be only for AC, and that honestly doesn't sit well for me.

vix920: What did you and your hubby do to do that?!

And you're right not to send your device in to be repaired. At least not until you have a way to save your saves. Which for the most part means a new system anyway.

^yeah I was thinking about that too. my plan was to transfer my save data to my new switch if an AC themed one comes out, especially since AC is the kind of game I'd rather play handheld anyway, but then I realized I have odyssey which is hard to play without detached joycons, and the jackbox games which are ideally played on a big screen, and my capture card only records on docked mode.

I'm really hoping they either do a special theme for the regular switch or for both of them. I think they'd be smart to release a special edition of both because hardcore AC fans have shown they're willing to spend money to get multiple towns, and I could see certain fans (possibly me) buying both so they can have two towns.

If they release a AC design version like they did with New Leaf. Then yes 100%

But if not, no.

The only reason i still play nintendo 10+ years later is because of AnimalCrossing

No AC design? No thank you

I may skew old, but I would go with no.  Even if it is AC themed.  Unlike the majority of AC game buyers, I prefer my AC to be on a TV where I can game with a bigger screen & hours on end.  Not having a Switch yet, I really don't know what they are taking away or adding to the Lite and how that would effect my game play.    And as much as $100 is real money to me, I'll gladly pay a bit more for the full experience.  As a single town guy, I can find the money for a one time purchase of a Switch.  If I had kids or wanted two towns, then the Lite might be a bit more appealing.

Def will not be getting the lite. One of the selling points for me is playing AC on the big screen. For me, bigger screens are better. I have no desire to downsize. I see myself playing on my giant TV during the evenings weekend, and taking the switch with me during to day to work to check in on my town from time to time. But most of my gameplay with be as big as i can get it. Bigger is better for me.

Update: Hubby stalked Amazon until he was able to pre-order it. I'll be getting a turquoise Switch Lite delivered on my birthday, but it's not my birthday gift!

Riesz I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. It's so frustrating. I did all the troubleshooting from the Nintendo support page and it worked a couple of times but overall, it looks like it's just given up. I'm mostly bummed about Captain Toad & Yoshi right now because I hadn't had a chance to play them yet. So now I wait for a Switch with a cart slot that works...

I will not as I have a Switch and play it 99% of the time on the TV.  Actually I brought a new TV for it a few months back and in full HD it is amazing.  I have always preferred to play AC on the TV so I am really looking forward to that again, it's been so long!

I think the switch lite is a good move on their part for those who only play handheld or those with kids wanting their own system.

Always good to have different options.

It doesn't look like it will be a problem for AC, but some of the text in Dragon Quest Builders 2 is pretty tiny already on handheld. The smaller screen will squish the text in some games to near illegibility. That's yet another strike against the Lite.

Chiyoko: If you already have a Switch and they release special editions of normal and Lite, and you get both of them, then you'd have 3 towns. Unless you mean the old Switch will be the family island and the new ones are all yours.

I've always said the most hardcore players play AC.

vix920: Coincidentally, just a couple hours ago someone was telling me about their N3DS XL not being able to read cartridges for a long while now. Wonder what triggers that?

As for the Lite, it's your birthday. Make hubby give. Just for Captain Toad and Yoshi for now. And again for AC.

Riesz oh no way I'm not sharing anything with anybody! but because the switch + games are so much more expensive than the 3DS, if they release two special edition switches I'd have to consider selling my current switch. buuuuut I might just keep it and have three anyway especially since they announced those orange and purple joycons coming out october 4th I told myself I wouldn't get any extra joycons if they weren't themed, but those are my favourite colours. I even have an appointment to get my hair dyed those exact two colours october 2nd

either way, I want my "main" switch to be a special edition one, so I hope that a special edition regular switch comes out.

I really like the idea of the switch lite, but I probably won't buy it. I'm looking forward to playing AC on the tv again - and I only have a few games for my switch so there is no sense in me spending money on the lite. It is a cool idea though!

It's cool that they're coming out with new versions, but I think that I'll just buy the regular Switch.

Before I was considering getting one used, but considering that they're not that much cheaper used, it's getting updated to have longer battery life, and a special AC edition may come out, I think I'll just get a new one.
