If you're looking for a new challenge or want to get into gaming but don't know where to start, Amazon has the Nintendo Switch Lite back in stock — and it now comes in blue, a new color for 2021.

Over the last few months, the Nintendo Switch Lite has been harder to come by than the 'Ice Ice Outpost' shortcut in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (you know what we’re talking about, brothers and sisters in gaming). The retail giant has this super popular console priced at $200. And when we say popular, we mean popular: It's earned a flawless rating from more than 53,000 reviewers!

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The handheld Nintendo Switch Lite is a more portable and inexpensive version of the original Switch. So what’s different? Its controllers are built-in instead of removable like the Joy-Con controllers on the original, while the display size is slightly smaller — 5.5 inches compared to 6.2 inches. Compact and lightweight, it’s made for gaming on-the-go.

"This feels so much better in the hands than the bulkier original Switch, that I can't go back," raved a gamer. "Even though it's lighter, it feels more solid as the Joy-Cons do not come off, and it doesn't bend like the old one did. My arms don't get tired at all holding this. And it had an actual D-pad! I also do not notice the smaller screen when playing, at all. It's just a much more pleasant handheld experience."

"This is perfect for people who want access to Switch games on a budget," added a price-savvy five-star Amazon reviewer

Happy gaming!
