Nintendo Announces the Switch Lite, Coming This Fall

It will sell for about 20,000 yen (165 euros) in Japan.

The "Switch Lite" will come in three colors: yellow, turquoise and gray.

To be clear: this isn't a review or a hands-on.

Nintendo have opted to forgo this to offer the cheaper Nintendo Switch Lite.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is being marketed a smaller, lighter alternative to the original Nintendo Switch, with a focus on handheld gaming.

The Nintendo Switch Lite has better battery life.

Average analyst expectations for 2020 Switch sales were at 18.5 million units before Nintendo reported earnings results in April of 2019. "It's also purportedly coming with a 5.5" 720p display, which suggests that the smaller console could be a replacement for the Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo has released hardware refreshes of their most successful consoles many times before therefore, it makes a lot of sense for us to get our hands on an upgraded Nintendo Switch console.

In docked mode, the Switch can output video to a TV at up to 1080p resolution. However, Joy Cons are still compatible with the Switch Lite. Nerd me is gonna say: audio syncing latency. Duh!

When the Switch Lite was announced, naturally it drew mixed reactions.

Investors reacted positively to the announcement, and Nintendo's stock rose more than 3% to 41,210 yen in the first minutes of trading on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The Switch already has hundreds of games, so many that some are bound to fly under our radar. By the time the Lite hits shelves there will also be warnings in the Nintendo eShop to warn users who try to buy a game that is incompatible with a Lite without additional accessories. "Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favourite Nintendo Switch games".

Arguably, the Switch's main selling point is the console's versatility. Still, I believe the tech is innovative enough that Nintendo should be pushing it harder - really demonstrate to developers why it's so sweet - instead of throwing in the towel so soon. The Switch's identity was its ability to quickly transition from handheld to TV play.

Got a whole bunch of those Nintendo Labo cardboard kits for your Switch piled up at home? This includes games that have received a score of 8 or higher on GameSpot since the console's release, as well as reviews for new games and updates to reviews of older games that were ported to Switch. We might see some different solutions for switch but as of now, it can't be switched.
