The highly anticipated Nintendo Switch bundle for Switch, the “Switch Lite,” has finally arrived in stores, and it’s about to sell for like -ten quid. Now that’s a perfect starting price for Switch owners — and a perfect option for Switch owners on a tight budget. (Or a budget to spend if you already have that baby.)

Why is this so great? Because it’s also coming with free copies of Overwatch and Fortnite: Battle Royale. That’s right, Nintendo is bundling those popular games with the Switch Lite for $100 less than the Switch Edition, which comes with the system itself and either a Joy-Con controller, a Pro Controller, and a Neon Switch A/C adapter, or the Switch Edition with the Joy-Con controllers and a Pro Controller, or with both Joy-Con controllers and a Neon Switch A/C adapter.

For a Switch Lite that includes those games, we’re not sure why Nintendo has chosen to release it at $100 cheaper than the Switch Plus. Especially since Switch games are not nearly as cheap (despite being relatively free) as Switch Plus games. We think they’re considering this Switch Lite a complete cinch.

Based on our early tests, though, the Switch Lite is pretty neat and there’s no reason to go for the Switch Plus. Here’s what you get for your ten bucks:

Switch Lite

Ultimate Classic Controller

Super NES Classic Mini




King’s Quest

Star Fox

Rez Infinite

Fortnite: Battle Royale

MechWarrior Online


Yakuza Kiwami

The Nintendo Switch Lite with Free copy of Overwatch and Fortnite: Battle Royale price is set to be released on Oct. 21 for £170.
