"It's great for people who have lots of opportunities to play outside, and also for anyone who wants to play online or local wireless multiplayer with friends or family who already own a flagship Nintendo Switch console".

In addition, the Nintendo Switch Lite will only play Nintendo Switch games that support handheld mode.

Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controllers and is smaller than the original Nintendo Switch. The controllers of the Switch Lite are also built into the system, and the left side sports a +Control Pad, something not featured on the removable Switch Joy-Con remotes. In addition, the actual product pages for the yellow, turquoise, and gray Switch Lite consoles (with Switch Lite in the URL) now contain information about the regular Switch, so obviously Nintendo is still updating things.

After months of rumors, Nintendo has finally unveiled their new console.

No, I'm not here to say Nintendo is doomed or the company is in freefall. It'll be here just in time for the start of the holiday shopping season, and at $199.99 ($100 less than that Switch) it could do a lot to boost Switch sales as the console moves through its third year. It comes in three colors: Yellow, turquoise and gray. In order to play those on the Switch Lite, gamers would need to buy a set of Joy-Con controllers and wirelessly connect them to the console.

Battery life The Switch Lite battery life is supposedly around 7 hours (the same as the Nintendo Switch), so it might not be fantastic for long journeys, but it still should be useful for your daily commute. So, you won't be able to use motion controls in games.

Can tabletop games work? . Instead, the Switch Lite is purely for mobile gaming.

More compact and lighter The Nintendo Switch Lite is considerably smaller and lighter than its predecessor. The Nintendo Switch has the same resolution but a larger screen, measuring 6.2 inches. It plays all the same games, but it's not a replacement for the OG Switch.
