Nintendo is releasing a newer model Switch sometime in August. The only difference seems to be the battery life. Big games like Zelda BOTW can be a huge battery drainer for the current model Switch. The new model will give you a lot longer to play handheld. This seems to be the only upgrade for the new model and it’s the same price as the current Switch. You can get yours in mid to late August. If you are a gamer on the go this upgrade might be a good idea. If you play mostly on your TV you can probably skip this one.
