Nintendo Switch Lite coming September 20th 2019

After weeks of rumours and leaks by case manufacturers, Nintendo has finally stepped forth and announced the Nintendo Switch Lite! Coming September 20th 2019 for $199.99, the new handheld focused console has no detachable joycons and does not support video output to a TV. This is, by all means, a fully handheld console of the very same base Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo calls this version of the Nintendo Switch “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.”

Considering this use case, it does indeed give a reason to have one main Nintendo Switch Flagship console and one Nintendo Switch Lite in one household, depending on the ways the games can support playing together.

The Nintendo Switch Lite comes in three colors: Yellow, Grey and Turquoise

Do note, the Nintendo Switch Lite is also not compatible with every game in every way, as the joycons can’t be detached anymore and there’s no “tablet” gaming with this console, as this would required detaching the joycons so two people share each one joycon in horizontal mode.

The screen the Nintendo Switch Lite uses is also smaller. The flagship Nintendo Switch has a 6.2 inch LCD display, putting out a 1280×720 pixel resoltion. The Nintendo Switch Lite on the other hand has only a 5.5 inch display, with the same 1280×720 pixel resolution.
