Nintendo has created a handheld-only “2nd Set” Switch bundle

Nintendo’s handheld consoles have always been hugely popular, with the Switch’s Handheld/Home console hybrid approach delivering a literal best of both worlds scenario for the company. Handheld consoles have always had a personal quality, making it common for more than one handheld to be owned per household, particularly amongst couples and siblings. 

To better cater to this market, Nintendo has decided to create a handheld-only “2nd set” bundle for the Japanese market, allowing the Switch to be purchased without a dock, joy-con grip, an AC adapter or HDMI cable, offering purchasers a portable-only experience. This bundle is designed for those who already own a Switch console and its TV compatible dock, allowing buyers to save money while removing unneeded dock hardware.  

Right now this bundle remains exclusive to Japan, though a western release seems likely, offering purchasers a 5,000 yen discount, which equates roughly to a £40 or $50 price reduction in the UK/US. The bundle is priced at 24,490 yen in Japan.

Plenty of Switch owners use the device exclusively as a handheld, making this bundle extremely appealing for those who want to use the console as a 3DS replacement instead of a home console.
