Nintendo Announces Switch Lite as 'a Device Dedicated to Handheld Game Play'

Nintendo Switch First Impressions Two Years Later

Turqoise, grey, and yellow are the first three official Switch Lite colors.

Nintendo describe the Switch Lite not as a new console, but rather as a "new addition to the Nintendo Switch family", aimed at players who only want to use the Switch as a portable device, and not for those who prefer to use it as a home console. A special Pokemon Edition has also been announced that will be available "while supplies last".

Nintendo today announced a cheaper and lighter version of its Switch video game console called Switch Lite.

The cheaper price point and bright colours are very likely created to attract families with younger players - it'll no doubt act in a similar way to the Nintendo 2DS in that regard - but how about for those of us who already own an original Switch?

However, this also means that there's no HD rumble or IR Motion camera, meaning some specific games will require the purchase of separate Joycons to play (don't worry, you will be able to use any you already own.).

"Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more color and price point options", Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser said in a prepared statement. You can't connect it to a TV and there's no kickstand for propping it up.

If you're a fan of Pokémon Sword and Shield, it may be worth waiting a little longer until November 8 (a week before the game's release), when Nintendo is launching a Zacian & Zamazenta Edition console, which will feature cyan and magenta buttons, and illustrations of the two new Legendary Pokémon.

Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch Lite. Wireless controllers can still be connected to Switch Lite.

In terms of the size of the console, the original Switch measures at 102mm x 239mm x 13.9mm with both Joy-Cons attached. "The touch screen is slightly smaller, measuring 5.5" versus the Switch's 6.2" touch screen. Nintendo notes that there will be support for all existing Switch titles, although some games will have restrictions. Nintendo has clarified that the back-of-box information for physical games, or Nintendo's website, will say if this is the case.
