Nintendo announces the Nintendo Switch Lite

After months of rumors, Nintendo has finally unveiled their new console.

The Nintendo Switch Lite will be released on the 20th of September, and will retail for $199.The announcement video was unclear if these details apply to the Singapore market, but considering that the Nintendo Switch now retails for we S$459 we're guessing local prices to be somewhere within the $250-$350 range.

The Switch Lite system is set to ship September 20 at a suggested retail price of $199.99 - $100 less than the flagship Switch, which works in both handheld and TV-connected gameplay. The device has integrated controls and, unlike its larger predecessor, will not support video output to TV. It's basically a bid for the 3DS crowd, but even if, like me, you aren't interested in a handheld-only Switch, there's reason to be excited about the Switch Lite, as it's added one of the most-requested Switch features: a dang D-Pad.

Though it sounds like the Switch Lite doesn't have any different interal hardware, it still functions a lot differently from the standard Switch. Nintendo will also release limited light grey Pokemon Sword and Shield edition. That's not possible with a Switch Lite.

With that said, there are some advantages to the Nintendo Switch Lite.

When does the Nintendo Switch Lite release?

. It doesn't feature HD Rumble (Nintendo's vibration tech for controllers) or an IR motion camera. Due to the difference in size and lack of detachable Joy-Con controllers, it won't support the company's range of Labo peripherals.

However, the Englishman would not reveal whether he would try that approach against the Super Eagles. Confident Benin supporters say they are all the way to the finals.

At launch, you'll be able to pick up the system in yellow, gray, or turquoise.

Can tabletop games work? . On the rare instances you come across a game in the eShop that requires Joy-Cons, you'll get a warning before purchasing on the Switch Lite. However, some games will have restrictions.

The Nintendo Switch was a home run for the brand thanks to its overwhelmingly good adoption and versatility as both a traditional and portable gaming console.

Because it integrates the controls into the body of the console, the Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller package than the the flagship version of Nintendo Switch. The Switch Lite measures 91.1mm x 208mm x 13.9mm and weighs 275g while the Nintendo Switch measures 102mm x 239mm x 13.9mm and weights 297g.

The latest variant of the Switch will still have a headphone port but no Bluetooth headset support, which is a bummer for players who wish to connect wireless headphones on their console.
