Last week we reported on a statement from analyst firm Citigroup which suggested that Nintendo will eventually release a "Switch Mini" to cater for younger players, just as it did with the 2DS a few years back.

NeoGAF user jts has taken this prediction rather literally, and has created a series of mock-up images which make the concept seem even more real.

The hook of this proposed Switch Mini is pricing and size - it has a 5-inch screen and doesn't come with detachable Joy-Cons, ensuring that the unit is small and cheap. No dock would be included, but the unit could still be used with one, making it ideal for households where a Switch already exists.

Given Nintendo's penchant for iterating its hardware it's a fair bet that we'll see a new version of the Switch in the not-too-distant future, but do you think it will take this form? Let us know by posting a comment.
