Nintendo still introduced a new portable version of the hybrid game console Switch Lite, albeit a bit later than expected.
Differences from the original version
Nintendo Switch Lite will not have Joy-Con removable controllers. Instead, the new console is a compact all-in-one device that makes it look more like a Game Boy or Nintendo DS. The system does not connect to the TV for playback on the big screen – it is a purely portable gaming device.
The system has a 5.5-inch screen, whereas the original version is 6.2-inch, weighs less than the original Switch console and comes in three colors: yellow, gray and turquoise. Nintendo Switch Lite can work from 3 to 7 hours without recharging, and Nintendo Switch – from 2.5 to 6.5 hours.
A complete list of differences between the original Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite is published on the Nintendo website .
When and what can I play
Nintendo Switch Lite supports all games from the Nintendo Switch library with manual mode, but some will have limitations. You can connect Joy-Con external controllers, Switch Pro controllers and Poké Ball Plus to Switch Lite. There is also support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.
The new Nintendo Switch Lite console will cost $ 199.99 and will be available on September 20.
