Nintendo Reveals the Nintendo Switch Lite




Nintendo Switch Lite

On July 10th, 2019, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. Introduced by General Producer, Yoshiaki Koizumi, the announcement started off with him mentioning a new member joining the Nintendo Switch Family. Shortly after, he would showcase the latest version of Nintendo’s current console.


Unlike the original Nintendo Switch, this version of the console is a dedicated handheld. As such, it includes several differences from the mainline Switch. Among these include JoyCons not being detachable and a true D-Pad replacing directional buttons. However, the Switch Lite lacks the ability to connect to the TV in console mode. Additionally, the Switch Lite will not support HD Rumble or motion sensors. Therefore, as separate controller will be needed to play these.

Players have insisted that the 3DS might be replaced altogether. However, Nintendo President Doug Bowser insists that 3DS support will continue so long as there is demand. However, the lack of 3DS titles, featured at this year’s Nintendo E3 presentation, supports the theory that this could replace the 3DS entirely.

Not all Switch titles will be compatible with the system. However, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and other major hits will be playable. Furthermore, the smaller size may further support handheld play for cramped hands playing handheld mode on the Switch.

The Nintendo Switch Lite will initially come out in 3 colors: Grey, Turquoise, and Goldenrod. As with past Nintendo handhelds, be sure to keep an eye out in the future for additional colors.  Finally, Nintendo will also release a special Pokemon Sword and Shield version.
