Nintendo Switch Lite

So, Nintendo are re-releasing the Nintendo Switch. However, this time, it’s smaller, lighter and more of a handheld than ever before. It’s called Nintendo Switch Lite.

How? Well, the Switch Lite is designed for handheld play, making it easier to play games when you are out and about.

The difference between the Lite and the bigger Switch is that the controllers are built into the controller. While this may be a disappointment to some, for others it makes it a lot easier to play. Not only because it has a control pad on the left hand side instead of buttons.

HD Rumble has been removed, as has the IR sensor and the screen has been reduced from 6.2 inches to 5.5inches.

Games such as 1,2 Switch and Mario party won’t work with the Nintendo Switch Lite because of the non detachable joy-cons. Plus games that are work in handheld mode are the only games that work.

Much like the larger Switch you can play up to 8 Nintendo Switch and Lite systems together to play multiplayer games and you can also play online using the Lite with a Nintendo Online membership.


The Lite comes in Grey, Turquoise and yellow and you can pre-order a Switch Lite here!
