Nintendo Switch Lite announced

A new portable-focused version of the console is coming this Fall

Posted on

Nintendo has announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, a new version of the console that focuses on handheld mode.

Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls, 5.5" touch screen, and is smaller/lighter than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch. It has no kickstand and, as a dedicated handheld gaming device, does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, it does not come with a dock or HDMI cable. Fans can compare the two systems on the the official website.

The new device can play all games in the Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode, although some games will have restrictions. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of game packaging and in Nintendo eShop.

For games that support tabletop mode, players can wirelessly connect Joy-Con controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. In these cases, users will need to have a device to recharge Joy-Con controllers, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip.

The Nintendo Switch Lite system launches September 20 for $199.99 USD and will be available in three different colors: yellow, gray and turquoise.
