The biggest Nintendo news of the week was undoubtedly the announcement of the Switch Lite. Out of nowhere, the news was casually dropped on Wednesday morning.

Nintendo has described the Switch Lite as a fully dedicated handheld gaming experience. Output to the TV is gone, as is the ability to detach the Joy-Con as well as several features like HD Rumble. However, the price is significantly cheaper, it’s a bit lighter, and the battery should last longer. Oh, and now there’s finally a proper d-pad.

We want to know: will you be purchasing the Switch Lite when it launches later this year? Or are you perfectly fine with the current Switch you have? Perhaps you don’t have the system yet and this will be a new opportunity to get in on the fun. No matter your situation, let us know how you’re feeling about the Switch Lite below.

You may recall Luigi’s Mansion 3 producer Kensuke Tanabe mentioning that Gooigi is edible. Tanabe has since stated that “it might taste like coffee.” That does make sense in a way, as Gooigi became sentient after Professor E. Gadd spilled coffee on energy extracted from ghosts.

Perhaps Luigi’s Mansion 3 won’t be the final time we see Gooigi. Tanabe told The Verge: “There might be a Gooigi-only spinoff perhaps, with all different colors. Gooigi Power Rangers.”

As one final note, we have a few words from the Luigi’s Mansion 3 developers regarding what happens when Gooigi is actually brought out. Tanabe thinks that Luigi passes out, but producer Yoshihito Ikebata said “the essence of Luigi is sending Gooigi directions.”
