Nintendo's Smaller, Cheaper Switch Lite Is Here

Switchlite

If using separate Joy-Con controllers, users will need to have a device to recharge them, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip. They also said the Switch Lite felt a bit more like the new 2DS XL handheld and lighter than the PlayStation Vita.

Go to the "Home" menu and select "Controllers". The controllers of the Switch Lite are also built into the system, and the left side sports a +Control Pad, something not featured on the removable Switch Joy-Con remotes.

The new Nintendo Switch Lite supports all current Switch software that can be played in handheld mode, which is nearly all of the titles available.

What's now unknown is whether Nintendo plans to significantly upgrade the components to deliver things like faster loading times or more storage space, or if it's simply looking to reduce costs by employing newer and potentially cheaper parts. The new handheld console has a more power-efficient chip and "slightly" improved battery life, Nintendo told the blog, and the same features could reach the new Switch.

I must say that I absolutely love the new D-pad on the Lite as the one on the Switch Joycons just doesn't always feel good.

Available in yellow, grey or turquoise, the Switch Lite measures 91.1 x 208 x 13.9 to 28.4mm and weighs about 275g.

Instagram will now ask you to think twice before posting profanities
The first feature, which is meant to prevent bullying, uses artificial intelligence (AI) to flag comments before they are posted. The social media network announced two new features on Monday created to combat negative interactions on the popular app.

Wimbledon 2019: Johanna Konta into quarter-finals after beating Petra Kvitova
She was so fixated on hammering away a break point in the next game that she fired it nearly into the backboard on the full. Konta served for the match at 5-2 but was broken as the Czech found her range again to beat off two match points.

Oklahoma City Thunder discussing potential trade for Russell Westbrook
It will be even more hard this late in the offseason, but it is certainly possible if both sides are motivated to make it happen. Per ESPN , both were shopped as the Rockets explored a trade for Butler before he ultimately signed with the Heat.

The Verge says this isn't the Switch Pro upgrade we're waiting for. Nintendo claims the Switch Lite offers three to seven hours of battery life (this number is 2.5 to 6.5 hours for Switch). It's also not known how game sharing will work between consoles for those that buy their titles digitally, but we've reached out to Nintendo for comment on how that will work exactly.

Like the original Nintendo Switch, the Switch Lite can play nearly all of the same games. Does the idea of plugging your Switch into a TV alarm and disgust you?

Smaller than the normal Switch and without features like the kickstand that lets you balance the Switch on a table, this version of the console is less sociable than the original. The Switch Lite is now priced at $199.99, while the Switch Prime is $299.99. However, considering the system has no detachable Joy-Con controllers, there are some games that require additional hardware in order to play. Check the comparison image below to see how that measures up, old and new.

The Switch was a blockbuster for Nintendo when it launched in 2017.

The Lite is set to release on the 20th of September, with the limited edition console to release later on the 8th of November.
