Nintendo Switch Lite Revealed

After months of rumors and speculation, Nintendo has finally confirmed the existence of the ‘Switch Mini’ as we’ve all been calling it. The official name is ‘Switch Lite’ and it officially launches on September 20th and will cost $199.99 in the US. There’s no word on pricing here in the U.K yet. At release, there will be three colors, yellow, gray and turquoise, followed by some limited edition Pokemon Sword/Shield versions launching on November 8th, a week before both of the games official launch.

As previously thought, the Switch Lite is a portable only console without the T.V connectivity. It also lacks removable Joy-Cons, HD Rumble, IR camera and the kickstand for desktop mode. It features a 5.5-inch touch screen compared to the 6.2-inch touch screen found on the original Switch, although this does give the Switch Lite slightly better battery life over the original.

Nintendo has stated that all handheld games will work with the Switch Lite and has also stated that games without handheld support can be played using the original wireless Joy-Cons, which are sold separately.

I am a reviewer based in the North of England, I have been writing reviews since 2015. I have recently written reviews on another site that I had co-founded. I started Northern Reviewer as a solo experience based on my previous website experience, which was literally none other than writing reviews and doing a few changes here and there behind the scenes. In May 2019, I co-founded the sister site to Northern Reviewer, Northern Gamer, along with Chris Bracewell.
