With more than 32 million units being sold already, a more affordable Switch could only help escalate that number.

The Nintendo Switch has been a big hit since its release and the numbers show for it. There have been rumors since October 2018 about a new Switch that would be an improvement to the current model but it looks like the plans have taken a full 180 and a more affordable model could be coming consumers.

With a “cheaper” Nintendo Switch, rumor has it that there will be some features removed that the current Switch has now. One such inclusion could be the TV dock as per speculations from Ars Technica. On that note, a dock can currently be purchased for $90 or less. The screen could also be smaller along with there being physical controls instead of removable Joy-Con controllers. If that is the case, that could cause problems for some games that would require the use of the Joy-Con to be passed around during party games if you opt not to pick up a set.

With making some cutbacks on the overall system and innards, we could expect the whole system to be smaller while adding in a less power-hungry chipset and graphics, which would explain why a TV dock wouldn’t be needed or feasible. This may leave those wanting to play on their TV having to purchase an original Nintendo Switch instead.

Nintendo trying to boost their sales more with a more affordable Nintendo Switch, even without some key features. With more than 32 million units being sold already, a more affordable Switch could only help escalate that number.

Since there are reports and no real solid evidence yet from Nintendo, we can take all this with a grain of salt. Nintendo has also denied the rumor in a recent interview.

“Nintendo Switch is our primary sales objective, and we are not considering a successor or a price cut at this time.”

Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa
