Nintendo announces a new smaller and cheaper switch

Nintendo announced it will release a smaller version of its popular Switch gaming console.

Yoshiaki Koizumi who is the General Producer of the Nintendo Switch explained in a reveal video, that the Switch Lite can not be docked into the TV like the previous version.

Knowing that the Nintendo Switch Lite doesn't support that, that's a huge bummer for some of the fans and anticipators of the product.

The screen size is 5.5 inches, and its resolution is 1280×720 pixels. While as the Switch Lite has a battery life of approximately 3-7 hours, which is due to a more efficient processor. I haven't put my mitts on the Switch Lite and can't say definitively if the features Nintendo's cut from the regular Switch are really dealbreakers.


Speaking to CNET, Bowser said that the Nintendo Switch Lite would be the only new device launching this year.

Opinion is split on Nintendo Switch Lite, so it's probably good that a Switch Pro hasn't turned up to divide people even further. The biggest concern Nintendo investors should have is about the supply of Nintendo Switch Lite come holiday time.

Q: Switch Lite will not work in docked mode, but will it still support charging through the official Nintendo Switch dock accessory, or other licensed third-party accessories?

Despite the controllers being fixed, they offer mostly the same buttons as the original Switch - except the A, Y, B, X buttons have been replaced by a D-Pad - while removing some functionality which we'll get onto shortly.


The Switch's signature detachable Joy-Con controllers are no more on the Switch Lite.

Nintendo Switch is getting an affordable version which is called Switch Lite.

It is, in fact, a lighter version that does not take up the hybrid concept (semifix / semiportátil) of the first one, since its controls cannot be separated and it cannot be connected to the television.

Were you thinking of buying this one digitally or physically? This will depend on the game that you play.


If you only own a handful of Switch games, you shouldn't be anxious.
