The Nintendo Switch Lite is official, here's your first look at it

Introducing Nintendo Switch Lite - a compact, lightweight console that's dedicated to handheld play!

Nintendo Switch Lite launches on September 20 and will be available in three different colours: yellow, grey and turquoise. It's also worth noting that the Nintendo Switch Lite is not compatible with Nintendo's cardboard construction kits, Nintendo Labo. There's also support for Wi-Fi, NFC, and the Switch Lite can also pair with extra controllers. if you'd rather use the Switch Pro controller to jump and flip around Super Mario Odyssey. There's also a Pokémon Sword and Shield edition called the Zacian and Zamazenta Edition for the same price but it will launch later on 8 November.

Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch.

After months of rumors, Nintendo has made the cheaper Nintendo Switch a reality. There's no IR Motion Camera either, so keep that in mind when looking at games and their features.

The good thing is that Nintendo will point out games' compatibility for the Lite model on the back of game packaging and on the Nintendo eStore.

Switch Lite does not offer many of its bigger sibling's options such as a kickstand for tabletop gaming or support for video output to televisions.

When does the Nintendo Switch Lite release?

. Anything annoying enough to compel players to break the warranty on their brand-new and otherwise stellar console or controller is a surefire problem, so I'm thrilled to see the Switch Lite get a D-Pad. The Switch Lite weighs around 290 grams, which is about 90gl grams lighter than the Switch with Joy-Con controllers attached.

The Switch Lite comes with a smaller 5.5-inch screen, but the official announcement does not mention the resolution of the screen. Nintendo notes that there will be support for all existing Switch titles, although some games will have restrictions.
