The Lite version is available in three funky colours; yellow, grey and turquoise. But what are the differences between the regular Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite? Read all about this new handheld console in this blog post.
The Nintendo Switch Lite will be in stores as of 9 September 2019 for the price of €299,99.
Play together, no matter where you areWith the Nintendo Switch Lite you can take your games anywhere, thanks to the compact shape. Please know that the Switch Lite is not an exact copy of the Switch console. The Nintendo Switch Lite is meant for gamers that like to game while travelling.
Play Switch games on the Lite as wellYou can also play ‘regular’ Nintendo Switch games on the Lite version. It does mean that some features have been left out. The controls are fully integrated, meaning you will not have detachable Joy-Cons anymore to play with. Keep in mind that the Switch Lite also does not have the HD Rubble and IR Motion Camera features. Do you have a game that does make use of these functions? Then you will need to connect a set of Joy-Cons to your Lite system.
You can always check the back of the game box whether or not the game is compatible with the Nintendo Switch Lite. If it is not, you can always buy a pair of Joy-Cons so you can still play the game. The only exception is Nintendo Labo, with which you need to be able to attach your Joy-Cons and Nintendo Switch console to the cardboard shapes. The Switch Lite is not suitable nor does it fit in the Labo shape.
Furthermore, the Nintendo Switch Lite cannot be linked to your television, this console is only for handheld gaming.
