The Nintendo Switch Lite, the company’s handheld-only Switch, was first introduced in three colors: turquoise, gray, and yellow. In April, the Switch Lite lineup is getting a new addition — coral.

Nintendo of America announced on Tuesday that its Nintendo Switch Lite Coral will be released on April 3. The new Switch Lite color is expected to launch in Japan on March 20, alongside Animal Crossing: New Horizons. (The new Switch colorway, however, isn’t Animal Crossing-themed, like the New Horizons console coming earlier in March.) When it’s released on April 3, the new Nintendo Switch Lite color will cost $199.99.

The new coral color — which is gorgeous and I need it — is the first new color since the Switch Lite console was announced last year.

Switch production this year has been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. In February, Nintendo said it’s expecting delays on Nintendo Switch consoles in Japan. In its Tuesday announcement, a Nintendo representative said production of the new color in Japan shouldn’t be impacted until the end of March.
