Nintendo rumored to be launching a smaller and more affordable Switch

Nintendo could be working on a smaller and more affordable Switch for release this year.

According to Japanese publication Nikkei, Nintendo is said to be focusing on portability for the gaming console. Some features such as the  cartridge slot and console dock will be removed to bring the overall costs down. 

The company is reportedly working with several suppliers and game development firms, and told them that the new console could be launched as early as this year. In addition, Nintendo is also rumored to be launching a new service aimed at "game enthusiasts willing to pay more". It is likely to be a more robust classic games subscription.
