    After months of rumours and leaks, Nintendo have finally confirmed the existence of the Nintendo Switch Lite. It's a device dedicated to handheld play, rather than the usual hybrid nature of the Nintendo Switch. It releases on the 20th of September It will come in three different colours at launch—yellow, grey, and blue. Nintendo states that it supports all Nintendo Switch software that allows handheld play.


    In addition to the three colours of Nintendo Switch Lite available at launch, Nintendo will release a limited Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian & Zamazenta Edition console on 8th November, featuring stylish cyan and magenta buttons and illustrations of the two new Legendary Pokémon from the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games

    Glad I held off on getting a Switch, think one of these will do nicely.

    If they still use the same technology in the analog sticks there will be lots of happy customers with failing sticks after some time.

    Meh. Colors are pretty ugly IMO, gray is ok but the others are too bright for my taste.

    The 5.5in screen is also a huge turnoff, too many games already have utterly awful text scaling in handheld mode, gonna need a magnifying glass just to see half the shit on this one.

    Neat, I wonder how many (if any) will come with FW lower than 8.0.0.

    I’m curious as to whether this is a marketing or technical decision as I could see reasons either side.

    Kinda disappointed that it can't be docked, but oh well. Looking forward to the release.

    the whole fucking point and appeal of the switch was the fact that you can SWITCH, this is a redundant product to fill the portability gab the 3ds used to fill except WE STILL HAVE THE 3DS

    Even then they will most likely be patched against RCM

    Speakers at bottom? Not a great idea.

    You don't need the RCM bug for Deja Vu.

    if it costs half of the original switch, it maybe worth it, I would rather to buy the original since the lite version cannot connect to the tv. I prefer to play my games on a big screen
