At last - you can run Android on your Nintendo Switch

At last - you can run Android on your Nintendo Switch

So it's all good news for the video game industry as a whole.

The Switch has become a huge global seller, helped by innovative, family-friendly titles that have wowed critics and gamers alike.

It is important to note that this Android operating system may not be compatible with all versions of the console, and the installation of the software could compromise support for standard Switch games in some situations.

Given that the Nintendo Switch has a much brighter future than the Wii U that's likely an understatement, so long as they can keep their level-sharing infrastructure intact for years to come.

Switch Lite, which will sell for $199.99, will be a strictly handheld device that can't be connected to television sets.

If you need yours on day one, the Switch Lite can now be preordered. The title, which lets players build their own Mario levels, helped Nintendo to Switch software sales of 22.62 million. It packs 32GB of storage, which is expandable up to 2TB via a built-in microSD card slot.

The popular hand-held console from Nintendo called the Nintendo Switch comes in a form-factor which makes it suitable to use as an Android phone and by extension run popular mobile games such as PUBG Mobile. This handheld is already sold out at Amazon, but can still be found for preorder on Best Buy and Target.

On November 8, Nintendo will release the Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian and Zamazenta Edition. Amazon shows the Switch Lite will have two-day shipping, while Target says the item will be delivered on or shortly after September 20.
