Nintendo Switch Lite – Congratulations, Nintendo, you have a new baby

The Nintendo Switch family of systems welcomes a new addition with the launch of Nintendo Switch Lite. Players now have the ability to choose the Nintendo Switch system that’s right for them.

“The introduction of Nintendo Switch Lite gives people the choice of a Nintendo Switch system that best fits their needs and personal play style,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the simultaneous launch of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, today is a great day for newcomers and existing Nintendo Switch owners alike.”

A lightweight device with integrated controls designed specifically to play Nintendo Switch games that support Handheld mode, Nintendo Switch Lite is available in three different colors: yellow, grey and turquoise. Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the original version of Nintendo Switch.

As a dedicated handheld gaming device, Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in Handheld mode. It’s ideal for people who have lots of opportunities to play on the go, and for anyone who wants to play online via Nintendo Switch Online (sold separately) or local wireless multiplayer* with friends or family who already own a Nintendo Switch system.

The Nintendo Switch Lite system is available at a suggested retail price of $199.99.
