The Nintendo Switch Mini is a Terrible Idea

Recently a lot of conversation has cropped up surrounding a rumored but most speculated upon concept of a smaller Nintendo Switch, tentatively titled the Nintendo Switch Mini. First conceptualized by the analytical group Citigroup and then publicized by Bloomberg, the idea has taken on wings of its own. While there are some sound merits behind such a system, as you can see in the video above, I vehemently feel this system is a terrible idea. Enjoy the Nintendo Prime exclusive take above and give us your feelings in the comments below!

    I can not agree more, Maybe i could see a larger switch, but a tinier one just sounds uncomfortable and too small of a screen to look at. But to be honest, for me personally… the Switch is already the perfect size imo

    If this comes out, I’m afraid this might replace the succesful DS/3DS line. :/ That would be a shame, since it’s a console that prints Nintendo money. It still does print money. Oh well, I hope a lot of great handheld games would come out for the Switch Mini then.
