Nintendo introduces Switch Lite, a cheaper version of the Switch

Alexandar Machev

Nintendo on Wednesday announced the Switch Lite, a smaller and more affordable version of the popular Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo has sold nearly 35 million units of the original Switch since it first launched in March 2017. The new Nintendo Switch Lite will be available for $199 beginning on Sept. 20. The original Nintendo Switch will still be sold for $299.

The lower price may help Nintendo continue to compete against the aging Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One, which are more powerful but aren’t portable. Sony and Microsoft are both expected to launch their next-generation gaming consoles in 2020.

The Nintendo Switch Lite won’t let users connect to a TV to play on a big screen like the regular Nintendo Switch. It also has a slightly smaller screen than the original. It only works in a portable mode and doesn’t include a kickstand or the option to remove the controllers. But players can add wireless controllers to play with friends on the same unit. In that sense, it’s a bit more like Nintendo’s older 3DS platform, but with support for all Switch games.
