Take a look at Japan's lovely coral colour Nintendo Switch Lite

UPDATE: Headed to America, but no word on Europe.

UPDATE 2pm: Nintendo of America has confirmed the coral Nintendo Switch Lite for release across the pond on 4th March. We're still waiting to hear on a European release.

ORIGINAL STORY 10am: Nintendo has shown off a new colour for the Nintendo Switch Lite, to be released in Japan on 20th March.

It's a coral shade of pink and it looks like this:


If you live in Japan, it'll retail for the usual Nintendo Switch Lite price and pre-orders will open on 7th March.

Nintendo's note announcing the new colour reiterates the guidance on Switch manufacturing being affected by coronavirus which it has already stated: that shipments within Japan will be affected. (Officially, Nintendo has denied international availability will be hit.)

Shipments of the coral colour due for Japanese shelves in March have already been completed, Nintendo said, though there's no word on its availability after this - or a subsequent international release.

I've asked Nintendo UK about a release outside of Japan, but was told the company had no details to share at present.
