The Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller, cheaper version of its bigger brother.

Nintendo has announced Nintendo Switch Lite, the long-rumored mini version of the Switch. The Switch Lite is a handheld console only, which means it can't be used in tabletop or dock mode.

Contrarily, it cannot be undersold just how much the Nintendo Switch Lite goes against what Nintendo has sold the console on by fragmenting its users and what games they can play.

The Nintendo Switch Lite will launch on September 20, 2019 and cost $199.99 (roughly £160 or AU$290). You'll have three different color options at launch: yellow, turquoise, and gray.

American Airlines sees $185 million profit hit from Boeing MAX grounding
Boeing said Tuesday that it delivered 24 737s in the second quarter, down sharply from the 89 delivered in the first quarter. In April, flydubai said it may consider an Airbus order to replace its Max order.

I suspect the D-Pad was added largely to mirror the 3DS' profile - again, 3DS fans being the Switch Lite's primary market - but I like to think it was partly because someone at Nintendo saw all those posts about players modding D-Pads onto their Joy-Cons. We'll see how well it's received soon enough, but for now, head down to the comments section and tell us what you think of the Switch Lite!

As it is a dedicated handheld console, it can not be docked to a bigger display.

As for the disadvantages, HD rumble and IR motion camera are not part of the Switch Lite.

The pint-sized console sports a 5.5in 720p touch display compared to 6.2in for its predecessor, and comes with its Joy-Con controllers built right in. Yes, but you will probably need an additional Joy-Con controller or controllers to wirelessly connect to the Nintendo Switch Lite in order to play party games. The Switch Lite measures 91.1mm x 208mm x 13.9mm and weighs 275g while the Nintendo Switch measures 102mm x 239mm x 13.9mm and weights 297g. It plays all the same games, but it's not a replacement for the OG Switch. On the rare instances you come across a game in the eShop that requires Joy-Cons, you'll get a warning before purchasing on the Switch Lite. Nintendo says that it will clearly mark games in retail packaging and online.
