Nintendo Announces the Nintendo Switch Lite Coming This Fall

Nintendo revealed the Nintendo Switch Lite this morning and a release of the mobile-focused console for September 20 this year.

The announcement video showcases the handheld-mode exclusive console and some of the features it will include. The new version comes in yellow, gray and turquoise, with the joy-cons integrated into the unit. The directional buttons will now be replaced by an actual d-pad and the kickstand on the back is gone.

The unit is smaller overall and will play exactly like the original console in handheld mode with a 720p screen resolution. And that’s it. This version doesn’t connect to the TV at all. Because the joy-cons are integrated the ir motion camera and hd rumble have been removed entirely. This means some games that require motion controls will force you to buy extra joy-cons if you don’t have them already.

The unit will launch at a price of $199.99 on September 20 which seems like a great price point for younger, casual or traveling gamers.

Personally I won’t be getting this despite the great price. I’ve always preferred gaming on a TV over a mobile device which this doesn’t support. So sadly I’ll just be waiting for the original Switch to lower its price, if it ever does. Oh and there’s a Pokemon Sword and Shield edition that looks pretty cool, check it out below.
