I’ve been a long-time fan of Nintendos’ handheld consoles since I first received an original Game Boy for my 10th birthday. So, with the impending release of Nintendo’s latest update of the hugely popular Switch console, I wanted to look into the differences between the three versions and determine which is right for you.

Rumors have been running wild for some time now about Nintendo were going to better the multi-million selling Switch and multi-colored Switch Lite. We even had a crack at some Nintendo Switch Pro designs we would love to see from the gaming giants (my favorite is our SNES Switch). The time has arrived as Nintendo release pre-orders for the new Switch OLED.
