Nintendo announces the Switch lite! Dedicated to handheld play.

This morning Nintendo announced a handheld only version of its popular Switch console. Coming in at $199.99, the Switch Lite swaps out docking capabilities for better battery life and a slightly cheaper price tag. If you’re like me and rarely ever dock your Switch or am only interested in gaming in the go, this is for you. With no docking, the device is limited to handheld Switch titles only with a 720p resolution.

The Switch lite comes in three colors and will release September 20th, in time to make holiday wish lists along with a limited edition model coming in November alongside Pokémon: Sword & Shield.
