All those who have been waiting anxiously for a smaller Nintendo Switch to make its debut, stalking the latest scoop on the Internet. Well, the rumors have finally come true and Nintendo today announced a smaller handheld version of its popular Nintendo Switch game console.
Nicknamed the Nintendo Switch Lite, it's a cheaper version of $ 199 from the popular tablet-console hybrid (starting at $ 300) released in 2017. We've been waiting for an update to arrive quite a while ago a time and, surprisingly, is in line with the large number of leaks observed in recent months.
The Nintendo Switch Lite differs greatly from the original Switch, as it is designed only for handheld games in motion. This means that it is smaller and lighter than the original Switch, with a weight of only 277 grams compared to the Switch of 399 grams. It also has a slightly smaller 5.5-inch touchscreen, but now it's even easier to transport and enjoy your favorite Switch titles. Yes, you can play any game title that is available for the Switch and that is compatible with the hand game.
However, the most important warning of Nintendo Switch Lite is that you can not connect this console to your TV or disconnect Joy-Con controllers as they are directly within reach of the body. Yes, this means that you can no longer deliver a Joy-Con controller to your friend and play a multiplayer game as if it were nothing. Nintendo Switch Lite is compatible with all accessories that work with your older brother.
The controller design basically remains the same, with the direction buttons now replaced by a D-Pad, which is a decision we are totally in favor of. Switch Lite eliminates foot support (which had its fair share of problems) and offers users better battery life, thanks to an efficient new chip inside the console.
Nintendo Switch Lite will be officially on sale on September 20 and will be available in three color variants: yellow, turquoise and gray. We will also see a special release of the Light Lite Switch "Pokémon Sword and Shield" by the end of the year and it will be a bit more expensive. So, what do you think of Nintendo Switch Lite?
