Nintendo Switch Lite is coming in September in the US!

The Switch Lite is a smaller and more streamlined version of the original Switch that is designed to be handheld and therefore can not connect to your TV. The Joy-Cons are permanently attached to the console which makes it feel sturdier and lighter with 22 grams shaved off from the original. The controller layout is the same but with a d-pad instead of directional buttons.

In front is a 5.5-inch touch display that is smaller compared to the original's 6.2-inch display. At the back of the original was a Kickstand that is now gone in the new Lite.

Graphics and gaming performance is identical to its bigger brother, but Nintendo also said that because of the more efficient chip layout and the lack of additional batteries inside the Joy-Cons, the battery will last longer. No exact number was given though.

The Switch Lite still supports WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC, and has built-in gyro controls. But it does not have HD rumble and IR sensor which could be a problem with games that require them. You will have to buy a pair of Joy-Cons to remedy this.

It will initially come in yellow, grey and turquoise with a special Pokemon Shield and Sword version will be available later.
