Free Play 61 | Nintendo Switch Lite & Pro Rumors


About This Episode

Nintendo has officially figured out that nerds love the Switch.  We keep asking for every game to make its way to the console and they have answered our cries by ignoring them and offering us the Switch Lite.

This console is a simplified version of it’s predecessor and, we think, it’s geared towards a completely different audience than current Switch owners.

But who needs it?  Who is the actual target market?  Are we planning on picking this thing up?  Well, that’s what we wanna talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
