$199 Nintendo Switch Lite dedicated handheld device announced

However, despite having the Nintendo Switch name, the Switch Lite doesn't actually switch into a console. That means there's just a few short months to wait, and you'll be able to pick it up in yellow, grey, and turquoise.

Nintendo also announced a Pokémon-themed limited-edition version of Switch Lite: Set to be available in North America starting November 8 - also for $199.99 - Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian and Zamazenta Edition features cyan and magenta buttons and illustrations of the two new Legendary Pokémon from the upcoming "Pokémon Sword" and "Pokémon Shield" games for Nintendo Switch.

The Switch Lite also doesn't have a kickstand, so it can't be used in tabletop mode either.

Whereas the Switch Lite is 91.1mm x 208mm x 13.9mm.

Nintendo have confirmed that the Switch Lite will release worldwide on Friday, September 20, 2019. Due to the difference in size and lack of detachable Joy-Con controllers, it won't support the company's range of Labo peripherals. "More to come on there, but that is the intention".

Supports handheld games (but some may need an additional Joy-Con) Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in handheld mode. It also does away with HD rumble and IR sensors from the controllers that bring incompatibility issues with several games. The new version is considered as being "dedicated to handheld gaming" and features integrated controls rather than joycons. As a result, some games such as 1-2 Switch will require pairing seperate Joy-Cons in order to be played. As you might have already guessed, this focus on portability means that it ships without a dock. However, some games will have restrictions.

More compact and lighter The Nintendo Switch Lite is considerably smaller and lighter than its predecessor. Nintendo has a neat "Which Nintendo Switch is right for you?" page if you'd like to compare the two directly. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of game packaging and in Nintendo eShop.
