Nintendo Switch Lite Will Launch 20 September

Nintendo announced that a new version of the Switch will be releasing later this year. There was a six minute YouTube video about the Nintendo Switch Lite. Nintendo Switch Lite will be a little different than the base Switch. For example, the Joy-Cons cannot be taken out from the system. There also will not be HD Rumble or a camera on the right side where it would be on the Joy-Con. However, there will be a D-pad.

Since the Switch Lite is designed to be more of a portable console, it will only be able to play in handheld mode. Docking will not be an option but that will not be a problem for everyone, though.

Nintendo Switch Lite will be releasing 20 September for $199.99 USD / $259.99 CAD. It will be cheaper than the base Switch. There will also be three colours. The choice of colours right now ar yellow, grey, and turquoise.

Which colour will you be getting of the Switch Lite? Will you be getting one or hold out until the Switch PRO or Switch 2? Let everyone know in the comments.
