These Nintendo Switch mini game cases are just adorable
With many gamers turning to digital downloads over the past few years, it can feel like physical copies of games are on the way out. But many still prefer to own their own cartridges or discs – and those folks can take advantage of things like those ridiculously small Nintendo Switch game boxes.
A Twitter user shared the find, much to the delight of Switch users on the internet. Next to these perfectly cartridge-sized things, Nintendo’s actual boxes look positively gargantuan. (Check out the best Nintendo Switch deals if you’re ready to start playing.)
“Guys, I bought something I really need to show you,” Twitter user Rakueru announced alongside a photo of the tiny cases, which pack all the details of the full-size cases into one. tiny (and probably largely unreadable) format. And Switch fans love them. There are a few Etsy sellers offering tiny Switch cases, including Kustom3DGermany (opens in a new tab) and PandaTigerShop (opens in a new tab).
Along with praising their adorable beauty, many praised the designs for their reduced use of plastic. “Seriously, Switch game cases are both the most disappointing thing when you open them and a serious waste of plastic. Yes, please put my little game cartridge in a relatively massive case,” comments one user, while another adds: this is how they should be sold.”

But some have pointed out a few downsides with the tiny boxes, which could pose a choking hazard or easily end up in the washing machine via a jeans pocket. Oh, and they might also turn out to be a little easier to shoplift.
Still, like this little Lego monitor, the tiny Switch cases are adorable – and that’s good enough for me. But if you’re going to spend your pocket money on pocket cases, you’ll need games to fill them – check out the best Nintendo Switch games and take a look at today’s best Switch deals below.
