New Nintendo Switch Lite Is Not Labo VR Compatible

New Nintendo Switch Lite Is Not Labo VR Compatible

On a more positive note, pretty much all Nintendo Switch games will be compatible with the Lite, so if you've been meaning to pick up titles like The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of The Wild and the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield but were holding out because of the price, now's your chance.

The layout of the built-in Joy-Cons is largely identical to that found on Nintendo's removable controllers, though the Switch Lite adopts a full-fledged d-pad. It has a 5.5-inch touch screen (slightly smaller than the 6.2-inch touchscreen on the Switch) and has a slightly longer battery life. The Nintendo Switch Lite will launch on September 20 and will cost $200, which is $100 less than the regular Switch.

Nintendo is certainly playing with power today, as the Big N announced the long-awaited Nintendo Switch Lite handheld device.


The Switch Lite also doesn't have a kickstand, so it can't be used in tabletop mode either. Before you ask, Nintendo says it has no plans to bring this new design to an updated Joy-Con for the original Nintendo Switch.

That's why I'm baffled, confused and disappointed that the company announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, two and a half years after Nintendo embarked on a drastic new approach to generational games development, by completely disregarding its core hardware identity; the ability to "switch" (*click*) between portable and home console.

The Nintendo Switch light comes in yellow, grey and turqoise. The Switch Lite can't properly play offline multiplayer in Mario Kart 8, removes the second-player Cappy in Super Mario Odyssey, takes out most of the multiplayer fun in Super Smash Bros. It can last up to 7 hours depending on which game is played. For example, Mario Tennis Aces' Swing Mode, which allows you to play with motion controls, can not be played unless you connect a Joy-Con controller. The back of every game box will show whether or not the game requires the use of Joy-Cons. It is built for handheld mode.


The new Nintendo Switch Lite supports all current Switch software that can be played in handheld mode, which is nearly all of the titles available.

What games will Nintendo Switch Lite play? This is a new addition to the Switch family and is created to be portable/handheld only with a nice discount over the standard Switch model.
