Nintendo Switch Mini Leaked

For months we’ve heard speculation and rumors regarding Nintendo’s potential plans to release a new, smaller, and cheaper version of the Nintendo Switch sometime this year. It looks like we may finally be onto something. Honson Gaming, a manufacturer in China, put Nintendo Switch Mini accessories up for sale on their site. @Cptn_Alex on Twitter caught this and posted the following:

 

 

So far, many are pointing out the many different aspects of this leak that are untrustworthy. For example, the cases being shown are clearly pre-existing cases for the traditional Switch. However, my humble opinion is that this counts as everything except for an official announcement by Nintendo.

 

Everybody’s question is the most obvious reason this is legit: why would a legit gaming manufacturer start selling products for a system if it didn’t exist or have some physical form? It’s actually easier to believe this is true than come up with all the twisted scenarios where this could be fake. A full analysis was posted on nintendiy.com, which also hosts a discussion about a 3D-printed mockup of the Switch Mini found at E3 this year. It looked EXACTLY the same. However, it was created by a different company… which is also Chinese. Now we have two Chinese manufacturers showing nearly identical designs for the Switch Mini within a week of each other, as well as accessories for it.

 

It’s easy to say, “Well, there’s some decent evidence, but this is still just a rumor. There’s no official announcement,” but there comes a time when you need to call a spade a spade. At this point, it’s much more far-fetched to believe this is all faked and coincidental. The Switch Mini is coming, and I’d assume that the Switch Pro isn’t too far behind it.
