The Switch Lite is otherwise a smaller, lighter version of the console you know, able to access the same features and play the same games (aside from the exceptions noted above). The Nintendo Switch Lite will release on the 20th of September.

"Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more colour and price point options", said Nintendo of America president, Doug Bowser.

The newly revealed Nintendo Switch Lite looks great.

The new console will offer most of the capabilities of the original in a smaller footprint intended exclusively for portable gaming and a $100 lower price point. The limited edition Pokémon Sword and Shield edition will go official on November 8.

For months now, various reports have been claiming Nintendo's secret intention to release a cheaper, handheld-only Nintendo Switch. As it turns out, there was some truth to these rumors, as Nintendo has just revealed the Nintendo Switch Mini.

Another runner was treated for bruises, and a fifth was gored in the back by a horn but did not need hospital treatment. It was only after he let his guard down and chose to shoot a quick, five-second video that a bull came out of nowhere.

The easiest change to notice is probably the size, which has been considerably decreased to make the Nintendo Switch Lite even more portable than its predecessor. The device sports a more refined design with three distinct colors - yellow, grey, and turquoise.

Switch Lite is compatible with all of the Switch video game titles that support handheld mode. Instead, the Switch Lite is purely for mobile gaming. Since the system is intended for handheld play, the Switch Lite lacks a dock and the ability to connect to a television via an HDMI cable.

Gracing the internet with one of its signature videos, Nintendo unveiled the Switch Lite. So, you won't be able to use motion controls in games.

As it is a dedicated handheld console, it can not be docked to a bigger display.

The major difference between the Lite and the Original Switch, or Switch Prime if you will, is that the Lite will not work with a TV. However, some games will have restrictions. This lends itself to a modest bump in battery life, going from 2.5-6.5 hours on the regular Switch, to 3-7 hours on the Switch Lite, according to Nintendo. The Switch Lite measures 91.1mm x 208mm x 13.9mm and weighs 275g while the Nintendo Switch measures 102mm x 239mm x 13.9mm and weights 297g.
