Apparently, not everybody has acquired a Nintendo Switch, which is a bummer because you’re missing out on Animal Crossing, one of the biggest video game fads we’ve had in years. Well, in case you were holding out for something cheaper, the Nintendo Switch Lite can play all of the games, both physical and digital, of its more expensive cousin. We checked!
