It's finally happened: Nintendo has officially unveiled the Nintendo Switch Lite, a new version of the company's popular console which is dedicated to handheld gameplay.

After years of rumours surrounding a new 'Switch Mini' console revision, the lid has finally been lifted. The Switch Lite will be launching on 20th September at a suggested retail price of $199.99 and will be available in three different colours: yellow, grey and turquoise. A carrying case and screen protector set for Nintendo Switch Lite will also be available, and a special Pokémon edition of the console has also been revealed.

The new console has integrated controls and is smaller than the standard Switch. It has no kickstand and does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, you won't find a dock or HDMI cable included. The Switch Lite can play all games that support handheld mode, although Nintendo notes that some games "will have restrictions". It has also been confirmed that you can wirelessly connect Joy-Con controllers to the console.


Check out the full rundown of the key differences between the Switch Lite and the original console.

So, it's finally here! What do you think? And will you be getting one? Ooooh, the excitement!
