Nintendo Switch: 'Coral' hue is the first new colour announced since Switch Lite's launch

Nintendo Switch players have a lot to look forward to this year, but they will need to be patient, as most of the upcoming games still don't have a confirmed release date.

This goes for the next Breath of the Wild entry, as well as the upcoming Gods and Monsters game.

But that's not what we're covering today.

No, this piece is here to cover the new colourway that has been introduced to the Switch Lite collection, so keep reading for all the details.


Nintendo has announced the first new Switch Lite colour since the console launched back in September 2019.

However, the new hue named “coral” is finally being added to the line, which could have been influenced by Pantone’s decision to name “Living Coral” as the Colour of the Year for 2019.

It’ll be available in Japan from 20 March, with preorders starting on 7 March.

Luckily, this launch hasn't been affected by the recent coronavirus outbreak, unlike the adorable limited-edition Animal Crossing-themed Switch.

The coral Switch Lite will be priced the same as the turquoise, grey and yellow versions, so don't stress about it breaking the bank.
