Nintendo today revealed the Nintendo Switch Lite, a new smaller version of the Nintendo Switch that is designed to play Nintendo Switch games in handheld mode. The Nintendo Switch Lite will launch worldwide on the 20th of September.
The Nintendo Switch Lite features integrated controls, and is smaller than the standard Nintendo Switch model. As this new version is designed to play games in handheld mode, the Nintendo Switch Lite will not have a kickstand and will not support video output to a TV. The new device can play all games in the robust Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode, although some games will have restrictions.
Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more color and price point options. Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favorite Nintendo Switch games.
The Nintendo Switch Lite will launch for $199.99 and will be available in three different colors: yellow, gray and turquoise. A carrying case and screen protector set for Nintendo Switch Lite will also be available to purchase separately.
