Rumblings of a Mini Switch console are getting louder by the day, and it seems a release is inevitable at this point. Interestingly, however, it might actually debut with a bigger display than the regular (i.e., current generation) Switch. The handheld game system would still be smaller as a whole, but offer up more screen real estate to gamers, according to a leaked silicone case design.
Now, however, images of a case complete with retail packaging from one of Nintendo's official license partners has found their way to the web. Have a look...
The manufacturer is Bigben and the case is called the Silicone Glove. In the lower right-hand corner of the box, however, is something more interesting—it says the case is designed for the "Mini Switch 2." That is a product that does not exist yet. That said, it is common practice for hardware partners to receive designs ahead of a public launch, so they can be ready with accessories on day of release.
Here is the shot of the retail box...
It is a low resolution photo, unfortunately, but if you squint you can see that it says Mini Switch 2 on the packaging.
If real, it could indicate that rumors of the next Switch console having a bigger display are true. That is not a given, of course, as we have also seen renders of a Mini Switch console with a similar design, but a smaller display (and overall footprint) compared to the Switch.
The one thing that looks like a given is that the Joy-Con controllers will be embedded on the console, rather than detachable.
In other words, stay tuned.
