Switch Lite pre-orders live now in the UK for £199.99

The new, cheaper, version of the Nintendo Switch is now available for pre-order, including the special Pokémon edition.

The new Nintendo Switch Lite is due to launch on 20 September and it’s now available to pre-order in the UK, although no-one’s currently budging from a £200 price tag.

That’s roughly £80 cheaper than the original Switch, although the Switch Lite is significantly different in that it’s handheld only and doesn’t have detachable Joy-Con controllers.

So far, the closest to any variation in price is ShopTo, who have the Switch Lite at £199.85 – a saving of 14p on everyone else. Which means Amazon.co.uk, GAME, Argos, Smyths, and Nintendo themselves all have it down for £199.99.

There are three colour variations of the Switch Lite – yellow, grey, and turquoise – as well as a special Pokémon edition to coincide with the new Sword and Shield game when it’s released later this year.

The Zacian & Zamazenta Edition (named after the two legendary wolf pokémon from the new game) is the same price as the regular versions but is only currently being offered by Smyths and GAME – with the latter forcing you buy a copy of the game at the same time, for a total of £249.99.

Since the Switch Lite is brand new it’s unlikely there’s going to be any major discounts this year, even on Black Friday.

The opposite is probably going to be true for the original Switch though, where it seems reasonable to hope for some decent bargains in the run up to Christmas.
