If you’ve been planning to get a Nintendo Switch console but stopped in your tracks because of its price, you’re in luck. Nintendo just announced a new revision of its Switch game console called Nintendo Switch Lite. The new console is focused on the platform’s portable side with no detachable Joy-Con controllers.
However, Joy-Con controllers are not the only thing missing in a Lite version. The new console won’t be able to connect to a Switch dock which means it’s purely handheld gaming device. Nintendo Switch Lite will have a smaller 5.5-inch screen and will weigh a bit less than the original Nintendo Switch.
On the plus side, Nintendo Switch Lite should have a longer-lasting battery that will be capable of supporting from three to seven hours of play with a single charge. It’s also a lot cheaper – Nintendo Switch Lite will cost around 200 dollars which is a huge price decline compared to the original version. Nintendo also said that the new console will also support almost all Nintendo Switch games with the exception of a few titles that require Joy-Con in order to play.
