Nintendo announce Nintendo Switch Lite, a compact handheld-dedicated device

This version of the Nintendo Switch is built with handheld gamers in mind. Switch Lite also won't connect to TVs.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is designed exclusively as a handheld, meaning the Joy-Con controllers are built-in, and it can not connect to your TV. The video in question shows the Lite being used in conjunction with the original model Switch's while out and about, showing that multiplayer will still be available across the board in a variety of ways. It'll be here just in time for the start of the holiday shopping season, and at $199.99 ($100 less than that Switch) it could do a lot to boost Switch sales as the console moves through its third year. A special Pokémon Nintendo Switch Lite featuring the box art Legendaries from Sword and Shield, Zamazenta and Zacian, will release November 8, a week before the Gen 8 games. When it comes to your Switch library, as long as the title supports handheld mode, you can pop it in and play it, albeit with some obvious restrictions when it comes to the lack of controller features. By joining the joycons to the main body of the Switch, Nintendo will squeeze out the expensive and sophisticated wireless joycons and create a mobile-first Switch platform.

Supports handheld games (but some may need an additional Joy-Con) Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in handheld mode. Nintendo says that, on a full charge, the Switch Lite can run Breath of the Wild for roughly four hours. The Joy-Con controllers would then attach for particular games or be located in other parts of the cardboard construct to facilitate certain gameplay characteristics.
