There still could be a more powerful Nintendo Switch on the way; one that offers better all-around performance and runs games like the upcoming Witcher 3 a little better. Nintendo is quietly launching the new upgrade, as it doesn't include a lot of changes to the hardware. While Nintendo had the internet rumbling over the Switch Lite in their left hand, Nintendo casually filled the paperwork for the New Switch with their right. No North American release date has been announced yet.
While the Switch Lite was officially announced today, the system was rumoured for a long time.
