The new color added by Nintendo to its Switch Lite console is coral. The tech giant has announced that its Coral Nintendo Switch Lite versions of consoles will be shipped in Europe and Australia and will be available starting with next month.
The color version of the device has already been unveiled as a Japanese and North American exclusive a few weeks back, but it is not being made available all over the world.
“The Nintendo Switch Lite color palette already includes yellow, turquoise, and grey consoles,” a press release from Nintendo reads. “Like them, this new coral addition is designed specifically for handheld play, making it easy for players to bring a diverse collection of exciting, relaxing, and challenging games with them wherever they go.”
The European and Australian release is scheduled for April 24th, with Australia receiving this new version of the Switch Lite console at the price of $329.95. Although the price has not been officially announced for the European version, we expect it to come at the same cost.

The Coral Nintendo Switch Lite is launching on Match 20th in Japan, the same day Animal Crossing: New Horizons launches, and will be made available in North American territories on April 3rd.
This version of the console will be purchasable at the same $199.99 price as the other three color versions: yellow, gray, and turquoise. This brings the palette of color choices up to four, without mentioning the special editions like the Pokemon Zacian and Zamazenta, or the forthcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons edition.
The announcement of the console availability was made shortly after the Animal Crossing: New Horizons confirmation, with the Nintendo Switch available for sale earlier this month. Still, it is already out of stock across numerous retail shops as people tried to have it for the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons title release.
