There have been rumours circulating for some time now about the existence of a Switch Pro and Switch Lite model.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to report on a possible hardware revision and this was eventually followed by the Japanese business publication Nikkei – revealing one of the new systems would be smaller and cheaper. Then, last month, Chinese gaming accessory maker HonSon listed a number of "Switch Mini" accessories.

Now, there has supposedly been a "Switch Mini accessory" photo leak (thanks, WinFuture). The images of a Switch Mini silicon sleeve come from the European accessory designer and game publisher, Bigben. According to the source, "Mini Switch 2" is written on the red label of the packaging (see above).

The image below is believed to be a render, illustrating what Nintendo's revised hardware would look like in the silicon case.

What do you think about this? Are you expecting Nintendo to announce a Switch Mini in the near future? Tell us below.
