Nintendo Switch Lite Animal Crossing Limited-Edition Console Bundle Gets Rare Discount


Nintendo released the Nintendo Switch Lite: Animal Crossing Edition during the holiday season last year, giving the compact handheld a stylish new design that was available in either pink (exclusive to Target) or blue (exclusive to Walmart). Fast forward to today, and the blue system is getting its first-ever discount. After adding the Nintendo Switch Lite: Timmy & Tommy’s Aloha Edition to your cart at Walmart, the price will drop to just $179 (down from $200). It has an adorable Animal Crossing design and comes with a digital copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As such, this is arguably the best Switch Lite deal we’ve ever seen at a major retailer.

This version of the Switch Lite doesn’t just feature cute Animal Crossing artwork through its chassis (including white artwork on the back and a small icon on the front), but you also get a download code for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. And since New Horizons typically retails for $60, you’re essentially getting a Switch Lite for $120.

That’s a remarkable deal, though it’s all but guaranteed to sell out. The pink Switch Lite that’s exclusive to Target is already sold out.

The Switch Lite is always a great option for frugal shoppers, as it lets you play all the same games as its more expensive cousins yet clocks in at a fraction of the price. And now that you can get it for $180, there’s little reason to pass it up.

If it does go out of stock, be sure to take a look at the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, which is also on sale at Walmart. Typically sold for $350, you can get your hands on the premium console for just $309. Along with a much larger screen than Switch Lite, you can actually dock this one and connect it to your TV.
