Nintendo have officially announced their long-rumoured Switch Lite, just weeks after E3 as predicted.

The new “Lite” model is a trimmed down, more colourful, offering with a smaller screen (5.5″ instead of 6.2″), improved battery life and now permanently attached Joy-Cons.

To accommodate the Joy-Cons in the new “Lite” body Nintendo have removed both HD rumble & IR functionality. Additional Joy-Cons can still be connected however, should you wish to play games with additional players or those that require the rumble functionality.

Unable to be docked, Nintendo are marketing the Lite as being “perfect for gamers on the move“. This further solidifies the Switch as Nintendo’s sole platform moving forward. Moving it into a position to replace the DS & its now ailing sales.

Available in yellow, turquoise & grey the new Switch Lite will be available in Australia September 20th for A$329.95; a price much higher than many expected.

If you’re an “It’s Always Sunny” fan Mythic Quest should be right up your alley. Always Sunny co-star Charlie Day is on board as producer along with a team of execs from Ubisoft, Lionsgate and 3 Arts.

Announced at Ubisoft’s E3 briefing today, it’s one of a handful of shows we now know about that will debut on Apple’s Apple TV Plus service.

Mini Melbourne is a world-first resource brought to life for the Metro Tunnel Education Program. In partnership with the Victorian Department of Education and Training, we have created 600,000m2 of Melbourne’s city centre in Minecraft.

Apparently there’s this thing called Minecraft that people go nutso over so this is kinda a big deal for them.

The Vic government, as a part of the new Metro Tunnel project, have released Mini Melbourne as an interactive education resource for teachers.

The Minecraft recreation includes a multiplayer game called the “Metro Tunnel Archaeology Adventure” (catchy I know), where players explore the excavated areas of the Metro Tunnel in search of items of archaeological significance.
