Nintendo Switch Lite is a compact, lightweight addition to the Nintendo Switch family, with integrated controls. Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in handheld mode. It’s great for people who have lots of opportunities to play outside, and also for anyone who wants to play online or local wireless multiplayer with friends or family who already own a flagship Nintendo Switch console. Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch. It has no kickstand and, as a dedicated handheld gaming device, does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, it does not come with a dock or HDMI cable.
The new device can play all games in the robust Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode*, although some games will have restrictions. The back of game packaging, product pages on Nintendo eShop and here on the official Nintendo website offer information about which features are included and which modes are compatible with specific games.
The Nintendo Switch Lite console launches on 20th September and will be available in three different colours: yellow, grey and turquoise. A carrying case and screen protector set for Nintendo Switch Lite will also be available.
