Some Of These Nintendo Switch Mini "Leaks" Make Me Wonder...

  • Am 21 Apr 2019 veröffentlicht
  • The Nintendo Switch has been rumored to have a few revisions in the works by publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Eurogamer. The current revision that seems to have the most confidence behind it is the smaller cheaper Switch that has been dubbed the Nintendo Switch Mini. Today I wanted to look at a mock up and a supposed "leak" that made the rounds briefly. One thing on these mock ups caught my eye and are making me wonder a bit about the controls for the Mini.

    Only suggestion I have is that directional pad is more aligned with the buttons on the other side because someone wants a better D pad in the first place they probably don't care much for the analog stick anywhere

    My theory is that this is a rendering . . . of an actual switch mini. What if this is a purposeful leak by nintendo under the guise of someone faking a replacement mistake? That the text of MINI is huge, the size of the rest of the 'Nintendo Switch" text, is very clever tongue in cheek but in a very contemporary marketing style one could easily consider professional. That combined with the very thorough job of the rest of the information on the device rendering might actually imply that this is the work of a professional . . . maybe a professional that actually works for Nintendo, as part of a team tasked with designing a leak. Regardless, this is damn impressive work and if they're not employed with this kind of work, they should be.

    You can tell the 2nd one you showed is a 3d mock up shows the USB-C connection looks physically impossible. It is on the far edge of the end. You wouldn't be able to dock it. Also the buttons look super digitized lol. I like the design nonetheless!

    A clam she'll design would be very preferable over other forms for me I think. Sturdier, and more well protected when ever you aren't playing it. Me I have a case for my Switch and I won't carry my Switch without it. Need to protect these nifty devices after all!

  • Daniel Bell

    I really like the idea of the unibody design over the clamshell for one obvious reason, less points of breakage, plus the circle pads would make it super easy to slip in a back pocket when you’re out and about.

  • pizzagroom

    Honestly, I think a Switch Mini not being able to dock is about as likely as a "Switch Pro" not being portable, ie being so powerful and beefed up it's just a traditional console. Of course, that defeats the whole concept of the Switch. And imo the parts required to basically just export video to the TV, arent enough that it would drastically increase the size. You can plug your phone into the TV, and the idea of being able to play your primary handheld game on a big screen is something Nintendo's long been trying (Super Gameboy, Gameboy Player,) for a while. The concept is too valuable for Nintendo to trow away, especially after naming it the "Switch"

    Hi Spawn Wave
    If you want some feedback about the circlepads:
    on reddit most people didnt like it and had doubts with them probably not beeing clickable
    I once made a mockup myself on reddit where i got some feedback, mine had dockable design and was like a fusion of a Switch and a 3ds in a ps vita style body
    I think this didn't blow up, because i labeled it as a mockup
    you can find it here if interested

  • Harry F

    I mean one huge problem is that the analogue stick is at the bottom. If it was a clamshell like that they'd put it on the top. This was a common complaint about the original switch but there is no excuse for this idea.

  • Difford
    Difford Vor Monat

    If it wasn't for the 'Switch Flip' name, I wouldn't even look twice. It seems to clever a name for a troll. The 3DS design seems on par too as they're phasing out the 3DS so why not continue with something similar?
    If fake, plaudits to whoever did it. It was very clever. I'm not going to be hyped because I'm waiting for a Switch Pro myself rather than a mini although something like this would be good for my daughter to use.

  • G Pother Illowhite
    G Pother Illowhite Vor Monat

    I'm hoping the Switch Mini will have a similar design to the GPD WIN 2 (or 3DS, or simply a clamshell design).
    I also hope the Switch Mini will use actual mini thumbsticks (slightly recessed), or trackballs instead of the Circle pad. Never mind the clickable issue re the C-pad, how about the fact that the C-pad is still essentially a 2D input to navigate 3D environments? The Circle pad was inferior, IMO, on the 3DS, but the Switch has much bigger games, & thus actual 3D inputs are imperative, especially if you're like me & need to invert the Y-axis for intuitive 3D motion. I also recall the prototype or official mockup of the Wii U Gamepad having Circle pads, & that generated some outcry.

  • Fred Wilson

    This would be trash waste of money. I don't mini or pro they can just wait few years for a stronger version but think really impossible for stronger version unless made on disc cartridges can't handle big games and graphics

  • Todd Linda

    I think when the mini does release it will have a travel dock as a pack in or a separate purchase option that just plugs into the bottom. Then Nintendo will start selling travel docks separately for a much cheaper price.

  • 𝕯𝖆𝖗𝖙𝖍 𝖕𝖔𝖔𝖍

    If Nintendo did a switch mini they should make it look kinda like the psp go and where the start and select are there should be a second thumb stick and right above the thumb sticks start and select should be and the buttons could slide out just like the psp go

    Eh. It somewhat matches to look of Switch prototype hardware. But there are some things that make me suspicious, Switch prototype and development hardware do have serial numbers, and that doesn't have all the text on the back the prototype and dev hardware has (property of Nintendo, not for resale, and not approved by the FCC (specifically for prototypes), blah blah blah). Some parts of it also just don't look right (the vents on the back look kinda weird to me)

    1. Why would it have a plus or minus on each side if it doesn't have detachable joycons.
    2. As you mentioned, its angled wrong if it had shoulder buttons that stuck out to the rear.
    3. As you said, why would Nintendo have the word "mini" that big. The goal is to emphasize portability and a massive "mini" on the back makes you think its bigger than it is. Or at least, that's the impression I get for sure.
    4. If they were gonna make a mini version , it would be way smaller than that, or else why bother getting it. I'd rather get one with removable joycons if the mini was that big.
