There’s been a spike in gaming over the last year, mainly due to quarantining and social distancing—so 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—in four fun colors!

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 nerdiery) and the retail giant has it priced at $199.

It also comes with a free $20 gift card to Nintendo Switch Online with promo code 8RLOZI4Z5INC at checkout. The code also grants you a seven-day free trial to the subscription service. Think of it as getting the Nintendo Switch Lite on sale for $179 or just getting $20-worth of free goodies.

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 Nintendo Switch Lite is a more portable and inexpensive version of the original Switch. Nintendo re-designed it to be more personal and handheld with the Lite. 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. In addition, the Switch Lite is more compact and lightweight, while 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 delighted 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."

The Nintendo Switch Lite is back in stock for $199. The retail giant has it available in turquoise, yellow, coral and gray.

"This is perfect for people who want access to Switch games on a budget, as long as they're willing to go exclusively handheld." added a price-savvy five-star Amazon reviewer.
