Trade in your current Switch to get an improved Nintendo Switch for $75 at GameStop

Nintendo recently launched its second Switch SKU and it’s mostly the same as the original. However, the battery life was improved due to a more advanced CPU. Nintendo is launching the Switch Lite next month. Which begs the question of why the big N would re-release its older Switch model now?

The Switch Lite has a slightly better battery life the original Switch SKU, which could have worked as an incentive to get fans to purchase it. It seems like poor timing to offer an all-around better Switch model just ahead of the new Switch Lite.

We discuss it all in the latest Nintendo Enthusiast video. Subscribe to the Nintendo Enthusiast channel for more videos like this!

You can find the new Nintendo Switch in the wild now at the same retail price of $299. If you’re interested in picking one up, keep an eye out for an all-red box. Nintendo is launching the portable-only Switch Lite on September 20 that you can pre-order now.
