Was the Switch Mini just unofficially announced to me?
A gaming company in China just wrote to me letting me know they’re releasing accessories for the Nintendo Switch Mini.

So it seems that Twitter user Cptn_Alex recieved a pretty curious email regarding accessories for a device called the ‘Nintendo Switch Mini’. While yes, this unofficial news and also not exactly from a reputable ‘source’ because it was just an email to someone. However, Cptn Alex is right. Who would make accessories for a product they didn’t know existed? While it is all speculation at the moment, there seems to be a bit of discussion going on about the potential of this device.
Nintendo is definitely not shy from creating devices with minor upgrades, or a better price point. Such as the Nintendo 3DS XL New, the Nintendo 2DS devices, and the Gameboy advance. It is right about the time where Nintendo would do a gadget refresh. And not gonna lie, these renders do make the Switch Mini a more enticing offer. If it comes in at a lower price point, and with missing a few features, I think a lot of people would be interested. Like, maybe no detachable controllers, no dock support, and pure handheld device? Sounds perfect for the gamer on the go.

Even if this is fake, there’s still no disregarding the possibility. Like I mention, this is right up Nintendo’s alley, and I for one wouldn’t mind a cheaper Switch device.
