Nintendo Switch Lite deploys to retail


Written by:

Nintendo Co., Ltd. this week released the Nintendo Switch Lite.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is a handheld device that can play all Nintendo Switch games that support Handheld mode.

It includes a 5.5-inch touch screen and battery life is between three to seven hours. By comparison, the current Nintendo Switch holds a 6.2-inch screen and 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life.

In addition, the Nintendo Switch Lite includes a directional pad, MicroSD card slot, headphone jack, and USB-C.

Unlike the Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch Lite will not support output to a TV and won’t include built-in HD Rumble or IR Motion Camera support. Separate Joy-Con controllers can wirelessly connect to the handheld, but will require a separate peripheral like the Joy-Con Charging Grip to charge them.

The final hardware is sold in grey, yellow and turquoise at $199.99 each.
