A compact, cheaper (by $100) Nintendo Switch system dedicated only to handheld play with no TV docking support and rechargeable batteries, this new edition trades out several features for a more affordable price point, and doesn't accommodate certain types of games as well as its older sibling Games with small text or many details will be made more difficult to play given no option for switching to the big screen. Motion control operation and multiplayer are also at a loss. External controllers can still be connected, but bring their own design kerfuffles. Does your friend have to lean over your shoulder to play co-op with you? Having seemingly small features like the built-in kickstand removed makes you realize their usefulness. Nintendo will label games that are supported for handheld mode, but some existing titles have motion control features like Super Mario Odyssey' and Pokémon Let's Go's Pokéball (where you throw). These will be less intuitive on the Lite, while still being marked as handheld-friendly.It will also be impossible to replace a defective Joy-Con controller. Also be careful regarding your Nintendo account. We noted this comment on Amazon.com "I have two young kids, and all 3 of us have our own profiles which are linked under my main account via Nintendo ID. The problem is is that only the main account holder (me) can play the purchased games on both devices. So the Switch Lite does not work for either of my kids, only my main account. Yes, this can be switched by changing which Switch device is the "primary" switch, but the fact still remains that under NO conditions can my kids play both switch consoles at the same time, even if it is two separate games. If you have cartridges instead of digital downloads, you will not have this problem." Switch Lite comes in three colors (yellow, turquoise and gray) and uses a plus-shaped D-Pad in favor of the original's separated four face buttons on the left Joy-Con. Rechargeable batteries are built in, and are advertised to last four to seven hours depending on system brightness and the intensity of the game being played. Release date September 20, 2019.
