Nintendo recently unveiled the Nintendo Switch Lite, a compact, lightweight version of the hybrid console that’s dedicated to handheld play. You can now pre-order it here from Amazon for $199.

Available in three different colours (yellow, grey and turquoise) the long-rumoured mini Switch device is now a reality.

Unlike its original counterpart, the Nintendo Switch Lite does not spout detachable joy-con controllers. It’s a singular model designed entirely around the portable experience.

Because of this, the Switch Lite does not connect to a TV. You cannot connect the system to the dock. It also removes the system’s HD Rumble vibration features and IR Motion Camera. The four-button D-Pad replacement has now been replaced with a traditional D-Pad. For titles that require motion controls, players will need to purchase traditional joy-con controllers.


  • Handheld Nintendo Switch gaming at a great price
  • Optimized for personal, handheld play, Nintendo Switch Lite is a small and light Nintendo Switch system
  • Features a sleek, unibody design with fully integrated controls and a built-in +Control Pad
  • Compatible with all physical and digital Nintendo Switch games that support Handheld mode

The Nintendo Switch Lite launches on September 20th, 2019. Pre-order it here today.
