Was the Switch Mini just unofficially announced to me?— CptnAlex (@Cptn_Alex) June 18, 2019
A gaming company in China just wrote to me letting me know they’re releasing accessories for the Nintendo Switch Mini.
Would a company make products for a console they didn’t KNOW existed, and didn’t have in hand? pic.twitter.com/yQgk7xCbUn
Here's something we know to be fact. Accessory makers will often get hardware dimensions/specs early in order to create accessories for up-and-coming devices. That's about as far as facts go in this instance.
As seen in the Tweet above, a Chinese company is claiming to have a set of Switch mini accessories in the works. Their website even has a full rundown of what they plan to make. We know the design of the Switch in the pictures is a fan mock-up, but I guess that's the best they can use right now to represent what they're making.
Now, would a random Chinese accessory manufacture really get the heads-up on a Switch mini? I guess it's possible, but it seems rather unlikely. Still, they have an entire lineup of items on their site, so if they're creating these accessories based on a hunch, they're about to have a big problem on their hands!
