New Blue Nintendo Switch Lite Is Available Now -- Here's Where To Buy It

With the arrival of the blue Nintendo Switch Lite, you now have five colors to choose from.


A new color has joined the Nintendo Switch Lite family. Announced last month, the new blue Nintendo Switch Lite released today, May 21, for $200. The console launched alongside Miitopia, the remastered version of the 3DS role-playing game starring (of course) Mii characters. Though preorders were never made available for the blue Nintendo Switch Lite, it's starting to pop up for purchase at major retailers.

The blue Nintendo Switch Lite has a darker tone than the other four Switch Lite options. Nintendo initially launched the Switch Lite with three colors: gray, yellow, and turquoise. A coral model joined the lineup in 2020. While Switch stock in general was limited for much of last year, the coral Switch Lite was fairly challenging to find in stock around launch. It's possible this blue model could also sell out fairly quickly and be hard to find.
