If you have been holding off on the Nintendo Switch, maybe because of the price or concerns about battery life, you might have heard the news that Nintendo launched the Switch Lite back in July. So if you were thinking about getting it, you’ll be happy to learn that Amazon is taking pre-orders for the console now.
The Switch Lite comes in a gray, turquoise, or yellow variety and will be priced at $200 for the console alone. It should ship out to customers on September 20th, so you will have to wait about two months before you’ll be able to get your hands on it.
The Switch Lite is a smaller and more compact version of the Switch with non-removable controllers, and left side of the controller also has a D-pad, something that the original Switch and the Joy-Cons are missing. It also has better battery life.
Since it is smaller, it is also more portable, but you won’t be able to connect it to your TV. So it isn’t for everyone. Nintendo will let gamers transfer saves between the Switch and Switch Lite, although not all games on the Switch will be supported on the Switch Lite. Not now at least.
