    The Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller handheld-only portable that will be released this fall. It is being described as a Nintendo Switch for those who just want to play on the go.

    The Lite will come in three colors: yellow, gray, and turquoise. Priced at $199.99, the Switch Lite is cheaper than the standard-issue Switch, which goes for $299.99.

    It is also a slightly smaller piece of hardware. Compared to the regular Switch, which measures 4 inches high and 9.4 inches long, the Switch Lite is 3.6 inches high and 8.2 inches long. The Lite’s touch screen is also slightly smaller (5.5 inches compared to the regular Switch’s 6.2-inch touch screen). The Lite, however, does have a longer battery life and a D-Pad instead of directional buttons. Size is not the only difference. Unlike the regular Switch, it will not feature detachable Joy-Con controllers or a kickstand, and it won’t support TV mode. The Lite also does not come with with a Switch Dock.

    Regarding game compatibility, Nintendo writes:

    Nintendo Switch Lite can play the games in the Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode.

    For games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. If using separate Joy-Con controllers, users will need to have a device to recharge them, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip.

    To find play mode compatibility information for specific games, please refer to the product packaging or Nintendo eShop.

    To me the removed features arent even a big deal and I think this will lead to Switch selling 100 million in no time! :D What do YOU think of the Switch Lite?

      mel b That's the point! Why are they in in the first place if they aren't gonna use them? Inflating the price for no reason at all.

      DreamcastGuy The switch lite... A console missing everything that makes the switch unique. It shouldn't be called a switch yet. It also means we won't get games that use the joycon features... Yet another useless overpriced Nintendo controller.

      The console having a D pad and us being grateful is like apple putting the headphone jack back and us giving them praise, the switch lite is just a Wii u mini, taking away every feature that would get me to buy a switch and selling it for $200+ tax is absolutely idiotic, it better have some features to warrant the price tag, the whole reason I want a switch is for it's docking capabilities

                    This makes more business sense for Nintendo than for the consumer.
                    Its cheaper to manufacture than the Switch therefore more profit. But for a few more $£$ you get a lot more for the switch including a game.

                        its not a switch anymore how can it have a new option to game with when it does the same thing All they did is removed a TV futures And no more joy cons I already have something like this it's called a tablet And how are you supposed to see the games when the screen is small

                          Love it! I’m excited for it but also afraid that I wouldn’t be able to play all games I want. I’m a big handheld gamer so I don’t care about switching...
                          so I’m wondering... I can play all games as long as I sync another set of Joy-Cons to it for those few instances?

                                  I wouldn’t say it’s “missing features”, it’s more like trimming the fat... All the meaty essentials and no frills. I don’t want to pay extra $ for useless gimmicky features like vibrations and multiplayer controllers — I’m not planning on purchasing multiplayer games anyway. Sleek, minimal, but powerful... This fits all my needs as a busy commuter.

                                      As someone who hates the joycons, never uses the dock, and have been wanting a more compact and portable version since the original dropped, this is everything I want it to be. The only thing I'll miss is the rumble.

                                              I was excited about the Lite until today's new Switch news. That mega battery boost has made me cancel my Lite preorder now.

                                              • xbox has no games lol xbox sucks ass

                                                Its gonna cost canadians 350 or 400 same price as the normal switch

                                                  So let me get this straight, you're excited a console you've had for just 2 years broke, losing half it's functionality, cause now you can buy another console, meaning you now need 2 consoles just to do what one did? I think the Switch Lite is a joke, and the only people who will want this are parents looking for a cheap kids system, people who onlyuh want the device as a mobile platform, and people who can't afford an actual switch. Also, VC is not gonna happen. If the Wii could do N64 emulation, the base Switch has no excuse.

Nobody cares about Switch. 3DS was common enough sight, but I've never seen anyone playing on Switch on the streets of this city. Yeah. Nintendo was fool to discontinue 3DS. They basicallly put all their eggs into the wrong basket. Well, good riddance. Only sad, lonely fanboys care about that brand any more.

                                                                        For all the things they removed, they should have added backwards compatibility for DS and 3DS games.

                                                                        I also agree with what you said about the DS Lite and the reason I didn't buy a DSi.

                                                                        I'm waiting to see what the Switch Pro will be about. I don't own a switch. Son does. Until then, I'll keep enjoying my Vita and buying the game's that appeal to me and expanding my catalog of PS1 RPGs.
