The Nintendo Switch Lite has been announced and it will be coming out on Sept. 20.
Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming Nintendo (OTCMKTS:NTDOY) console.
- Nintendo will be charging $200 for the device, which is $100 less than the normal Switch.
- The Switch Lite will only work in handheld mode.
- This means that players won’t be able to use the game console with a dock to connect it to the TV.
- There also isn’t a kickstand on the device so it won’t work in tabletop mode, either.
- Another thing to note about the Nintendo Switch Lite is that it doesn’t feature detachable controllers.
- Instead, the controllers are built into the console.
- There have also been some changes to these controllers over the normal Joycons.
- The most noticeable is the decision to include a traditional Dpad.
- The device also doesn’t include the IR sensor on the normal Joycon either.
- What this means is that the Nintendo Switch Lite won’t be able to make use of motion controls.
- To go along with this is the lack of HD rumble on the device.
- The Nintendo Switch Lite will come out in three colors: Grey, Turquoise and Yellow.
- A special Zacian and Zamazenta Edition will also be available at launch to match the new legendary Pokemon in Sword and Shield.
- There are also larger bezels around the display and it appears to be slightly depressed in, which may help prevent scratching the screen.
