This Nintendo Switch Lite Console Includes Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Just $159


Ahead of Prime Day, Walmart is offering Nintendo Switch Lite (Timmy and Tommy Aloha Edition) console for just $159. Normally priced at $199, this was already a great deal since it included the full Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. It’s part of a larger Walmart sale that competes with Amazon Prime Day. We’re pretty sure Amazon won’t match or beat this deal on Prime Day.

Nintendo Switch Lite with Animal Crossing for $159

Nintendo Switch Lite (Timmy & Tommy’s Aloha Edition) Animal Crossing: New Horizons Pack

The Switch Lite retails for $100 less than the original Switch and $150 less than the Switch OLED. It’s compatible with most Nintendo Switch games and runs on the same hardware, so performance is identical. The three main drawbacks of the Switch Lite are (1) the controllers aren’t detachable, (2) the console can’t be docked and played on a TV, and (3) the display is smaller (5.5” versus 6.2” on the Switch and 7” on the Switch OLED). If you’re going to employ the Switch purely as a handheld console, you’re better off just buying the Switch Lite. While the controls aren’t detachable, the Switch Lite does support Bluetooth wireless technology, so you can always buy another pair of Joy-Cons, a Switch Pro Controller, or a compatible third-party wireless Switch controller and still play without a cable.

If you like life sims like Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon, or Minecraft, you’ll probably love Animal Crossing. It’s clear that Nintendo has put a lot of love into this first-party title, and it’s easily one of the best—and most relaxing—games on the Nintendo Switch. It’s a great choice for gamers of all ages, even kids. Check out our glowing IGN review for more details.
