Imagine you have a portable console as powerful and has many games and is fun as Nintendo Switch but it fits nicely into your pocket and weigh comfortably in your hands for extensive period of time just like how a smartphone fits into your pocket and weigh comfortably in your hands, wouldn’t it be awesome?
Yes, sure there’s Nintendo Switch Lite but Nintendo Switch Lite doesn’t fit nicely into your pant nor jeans pocket and at 0.61 lbs (~277 grams) – which is 1.5x the weight of latest iPhone Pro Max model – Nintendo Switch Lite is still not so comfortable for a pro-longed gaming sessions.
Why Nintendo Switch Micro does make sense?
Let’s travelled back in time for a little while, back into Game Boy Advance time. Did everyone remember that Nintendo came out with Game Boy Micro – apart from the original Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Advance SP? In case you have a hard time remembering it, here’s the visual look of Game Boy Advance family. Look how small the Game Boy Advance Micro is!
And here’s the reason why I want one and the same reason why Nintendo should make one – a Nintendo Switch Micro: while the rumored Nintendo Switch Pro is able to deliver 4K, having OLED screen and bigger screen size – which all are good, but what I want (and likely what most people need) is to be able playing my favorite games whenever and wherever I like. And given the size and weight of Nintendo Switch Lite today, the hybrid handheld – console is just not small enough to fit in my pocket (and yours too!) and not comfortable enough to carry & play around. If Nintendo could really make this Nintendo Switch Micro to happen, I would imagine how people will be happy spending their money to get it (I’ll for sure be happy for it). Bottom line, it makes both party happy – gamers are happy because now they have something fits in the pocket and weigh comfortably to hold and Nintendo is happy because it extends Nintendo Switch lifespan to another few years down the road.
Another reason why Nintendo should make Nintendo Switch Micro though unrelated: AYA NEO and GPD managed to miniaturize PC into the size of original Switch. So I don’t see any reasons why Nintendo couldn’t do the same for its Nintendo Switch console, especially given Nintendo Switch is a 2017 technology (Tegra processor and such) which by time today, they should be able to be easily miniaturized.
Nintendo Switch Micro Specifications
Here are my wish-list specification for Nintendo Switch Micro:
Basic must-have features:
- Fits into pocket
- Weighs not more than today smartphone’s weight
- Edge to edge display to maximize the space, 4 inch will be good enough, or 5 inch would be awesome!

Some additional nice-to-have features:
- Able to connect to TV via micro Dock
- Detachable micro joy-conn, so gamers can easily replace them whenever the controllers are broken
Some gamers’ dream features:
