Nintendo’s Mr. Yoshiaki Koizumi has just revealed the Nintendo Switch Lite on Paul Gale Network

The Nintendo Switch Lite is releasing this September 20th for $199.99 and comes in three color options: Yellow, Grey, and Turquoise. It does not have detachable Joy-Cons, but can be paired with them. The system does not dock to a TV, have HD Rumble, or an IR Camera, but does have a full D-Pad on the left hand side.

For a hundred bucks less than the base Nintendo Switch and the ability to still play such a huge lineup of software…this may be too hard to pass up on for certain gamers! What do you think?

If that wasn’t enough for you, one week before Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield release on November 15th, there will be a special Pokémon themed Nintendo Switch Lite hitting store shelves. Here’s a look at the November 8th model:

Press release:

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In a video today, Nintendo introduced Nintendo Switch Lite, a device designed specifically to play Nintendo Switch games in handheld mode. The Nintendo Switch Lite system launches Sept. 20 at a suggested retail price of $199.99 and will be available in three different colors: yellow, gray and turquoise. A carrying case and screen protector set for Nintendo Switch Lite will also be available.

“Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more color and price point options,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favorite Nintendo Switch games.”

The flagship Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017 and offers three different play modes: playing in TV mode by placing the system into a Nintendo Switch dock, playing cooperatively or competitively in tabletop mode by sharing Joy-Con controllers and playing in handheld mode. The system comes with either Gray Joy-Con controllers or Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con controllers.

Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch. It has no kickstand and, as a dedicated handheld gaming device, does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, it does not come with a dock or HDMI cable.

The new device can play all games in the robust Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode*, although some games will have restrictions. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of game packaging and in Nintendo eShop.

Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite owners can get together to enjoy compatible multiplayer titles like Super Mario Maker 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate together via Nintendo Switch Online** or local wireless multiplayer***.

* For games that support tabletop mode, players can wirelessly connect Joy-Con controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. In these cases, users will need to have a device to recharge Joy-Con controllers, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip.
**Nintendo Switch Online membership (sold separately) and Nintendo Account required for online play. Not available in all countries. Internet access required for online features. Terms apply. nintendo.com/switch-online
