Nintendo has introduced their long-rumoured all-new, compact hand-held only version of the Nintendo Switch console called Switch Lite.

Unlike the Nintendo Switch, The console sports integrated controls instead of the detachable Jon-cons we have on the Nintendo Switch. It also ditch’s the directional buttons in favour of a proper d-pad.

The absense of Joy-cons however means the new console does’nt have an IR Motion Camera or HD Rumble features. Therefore games which are heavily designed based on the motion controls like 1-2-Switch won’t be compatible with the new console… unless you connect separate Joy-Con controllers.

Also being a purely compact hand held device, It can’t connect to television sets.

The Console comes in Three Colours: Turquoise, Grey and Yellow. It hosts a much smaller 5.5 (Nintendo switch is 6.2-inch) inch touchscreen (1280 x 720 resolution) than its predecessor and weighs a lot less too ( 123 grams lighter than the Nintendo Switch).

The console has 32 MB of internal Storage much like its big Brother, The Nintendo Switch. It also allows a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion.

The Nintendo Switch Lite will allow players to play any games which supports the handheld mode. Games such as Super Smash Bros. UltimateSplatoon 2Super Mario Odyssey, and Breath of the Wild and many others.

The Switch Lite will be launched on September 20th. The compact console will retail for $200 which is $100 less than the Nintendo switch.
