Nintendo Switch Lite gaming console unveiled: All that you should know

The new version of the gaming console costs $100 lesser than the regular one.

We have some very good news for gamers. Nintendo has taken wraps off its Switch hybrid gaming console today. Dubbed Nintendo Switch Lite, the console is a smaller version of the system that is focussed on the platform’s portable side. The company has announced that the new Nintendo Switch Lite is priced at $199.99 and will be made available for purchase on September 20.

We should mention that the Lite version of the Nintendo Switch will not come with detachable Joy-Con controllers. Instead, the latest gaming console by Nintendo is compact and an all-in-one piece of hardware. It can only be used as a handheld gaming console and users don’t get the option of connecting it to a television to play their favourite games on a big screen.

The new gaming console comes with a 5.5-inch display and weighs 0.61lbs, which is lesser than the original Switch. The company has rolled out Nintendo Switch Lite in three colour variants: Yellow, Gray and Turquoise. The new variant of the console promises a battery life that spans three to seven hours of gameplay.

According to the company, with a Nintendo Switch Lite, you can play all the games in the Nintendo Switch Library that have support for handheld mode. It is also worth noticing that some games may have certain restrictions for the Nintendo Switch Lite gaming console. The new gaming console does not come with HD Rumble support or the IR camera that once can access in Joy Cons for the regular version of Switch.

It’s worth adding that Nintendo Switch Lite will come with support for external Joy-Con controllers, the Switch Pro Controller and the Poke Ball Plus. It also comes with built-in gyro-controls. For connectivity, the device has support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. A hands-on report in technology website The Verge has elaborated on these points about the newly launched gaming console by Nintendo.

We should point out that a number of reports in the Wall Street Journal over the last one year had predicted that Nintendo is working on a smaller and more affordable Switch gaming console. With this announcement by the company, the reports by the Wall Street Journal have proven to be correct.

The latest gaming console by Nintendo may not be the best option for those who enjoy playing games on big screens. But then, for those who do not mind playing games on handheld devices, it is a good option as they would end up saving $100.

There is no word by the company yet about the India price and availability of the Nintendo Switch Lite. We would update you as soon as we know.
