Price is not much different with the regular version, if you think about it, no Switch Dock and no Joycons. The worst feature is not able to play on TV

The Nintendo Switch Lite Will Be Released On September 20

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.

The Nintendo Switch Lite Is Getting A Lovely Pokémon Sword and Shield Edition

If you’re able to hold off a few weeks on buying the new Nintendo Switch Lite when it releases September 20, you’ll have the chance to get a pretty slick version of Nintendo’s latest Switch: the Pokémon Sword and Shield-themed Zacian and Zamazenta edition.

As you can see, it’s an elegant light gray with cyan and magenta buttons and joysticks, with illustrations of the eponymous Pokémon on the back.

Unfortunately, this is just a cool new color scheme for the Switch—it doesn’t come with Pokémon Sword or Shield bundled or pre-loaded as currently listed. Still, those Zacian and Zamazenta illustrations are pretty sweet.

The Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian and Zamazenta edition will be available November 8 for $199.99.
