Nintendo Announces Switch Lite as 'a Device Dedicated to Handheld Game Play'

Nintendo reveals the Switch Lite for people who just play in portable mode Nintendo Announces Switch Lite as 'a Device Dedicated to Handheld Game Play'

If you've been wanting to get your hands on the Nintendo Switch, but find the system a little out of your price range, you'll be excited to hear that Nintendo has just announced the Switch Lite, a more affordable version of the popular console, coming this fall!

In terms of controls, the Switch Lite ditches the detachable Joy-cons in favor of a solid built-in controller setup.

Is the new Nintendo Switch Lite Labo VR compatible? It also doesn't support the Switch dock and TV output.

The Switch Lite will launch in Canada on September 20, 2019 for a suggested retail price of $259.99. You'll have three different color options at launch: yellow, turquoise, and gray.

Nintendo says there's no difference in performance between the two models - the Lite still has the same Tegra X1 chip, 32GB of storage, and NFC in the thumbstick for Amiibos.

"Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in handheld mode", Ninty explains.

The Nasdaq composite, which is heavily weighted with technology companies, gained 43.35 points, or 0.5%, to 8,141.73. USA futures pointed to a lower opening for Wall Street, with E-Minis for the S&P500 at -0.2 percent.

Battery life The Switch Lite battery life is supposedly around 7 hours (the same as the Nintendo Switch), so it might not be awesome for long journeys, but it still should be useful for your daily commute. For example, Mario Tennis Aces' Swing Mode, which allows you to play with motion controls, can not be played unless you connect a Joy-Con controller.

If you want to play games that do not support handheld mode on the Nintendo Switch, then you will have to purchase a controller separately.

Can tabletop games work? .

The Nintendo Switch is no different, as the company took a huge first step forward into the ninth generation of video game consoles by pushing not for advances in hardware technology, but to smash the wall between dedicated handheld and home console. Super Mario Party' Toad's Rec Room minigames, for example, aren't designed for the shape of Nintendo Switch Lite, so players won't have the "same experience".

Starting off with the display the Switch Lite shrinks to a 5.5-inch touch panel with the same HD resolution.

What games will Nintendo Switch Lite play? It is built for handheld mode.
