Surprise, surprise: It looks like a Nintendo Switch but... smaller. And with a D-pad.
A Chinese company has posted a series of accessories on their webpage that appear to be for the unannounced Nintendo Switch Mini.
Twitter user @Cptn_Alex posted the following tweet Tuesday morning, which says that he received an email from a company claiming to sell Nintendo Switch Mini accessories, including carrying cases and screen protectors.
Was the Switch Mini just unofficially announced to me?— CptnAlex (@Cptn_Alex) June 18, 2019
A gaming company in China just wrote to me letting me know they’re releasing accessories for the Nintendo Switch Mini.
Would a company make products for a console they didn’t KNOW existed, and didn’t have in hand? pic.twitter.com/yQgk7xCbUn
The product pages are still active on Honson's website at time of writing. Screenshots posted on the storefront show images of a smaller Switch sporting a D-pad along with built-in control sticks and buttons. The bottom of the device appears to still have the same connectors as its bigger brother that would connect the device to a dock.
Twitter user @ZhugeEX responded to the post, mentioning that Chinese companies frequently make posts like this with their own renderings of unannounced products.
Chinese companies do this a lot with unannounced products. Doesn't always mean the images are real. https://t.co/QoV0vOEKsk— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) June 18, 2019
