Nintendo today announced a cheaper and lighter version of its Switch video game console called Switch Lite. It will retail for $200—$100 less than the original—and will be available on September 20.
“Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more color and price point options,” Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser said in a prepared statement. “Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favorite Nintendo Switch games.”
As Bowser notes, the Switch Lite will be available in different colors—yellow, gray, and turquoise—and gamers will be able to purchase additional accessories, like a carrying case and screen protector.
Unlike the larger Switch, which can be played with Joy-Con controllers, the smaller Switch Lite features integrated controllers. As such, it does not support shared gameplay, with two players each using a Joy-Con controller. It also doesn’t support the Switch dock and TV output. Instead, the Switch Lite is purely for mobile gaming.
Switch Lite is compatible with all of the Switch video game titles that support handheld mode. Nintendo says that it will clearly mark games in retail packaging and online.
