After a year and a half of noncommittal colors like grey, turquoise, bad mayonnaise yellow, and coral, Nintendo gives us a Switch Lite that’s confident enough to call itself blue, even though it’s sort of purplish, depending on your eyes and/or display settings.
The new blue Switch Lite, due out May 21, is blue in the way the purple GameCube is purple. That’s to say vaguely while somewhat open to interpretation. It’s obviously blue, as the GameCube is obviously purple, but is it really? Maybe.
Perhaps seeing the blue Switch Lite in relation to the other Switch Lites will help focus the color into something definitive.
Nope. If anything it’s even more ambiguous now. And is coral looking more peach here? Maybe a little orange?
Nintendo. Changing the way you think about and perceive color.
