This was announced by the Japanese company Nintendo On September 20, the Nintendo Switch Lite launches, lighter and cheaper than its popular video game console. The device will be launched at a suggested price of $ 200 (100 less than the main console of this range) and will weigh 277 grams.
Although the console can not be connected to the Nintendo TV's TV or base, it will have built-in controls that allow it to work with it with one hand. In addition, it will be compatible with titles like Super Mario Maker 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros Ultimate, with a battery that lasts between 3 and 7 hours.
The device, which will be available in yellow, gray and turquoise blue, will have a 5.5-inch screen integrated into a capacitive LCD touch panel.
"Now users can choose between the system they like to put their favorite games on Nintendo Switch"said Doug Browser, President of the United States of the Entrepreneur.
The original Nintendo Switch, which was launched in March 2017, It allows users to play in three different modes: portable, desktop, and TV, while Switch Lite is designed for portable mode only.
When the hybrid console debuted on the market initially, it is perceived as the classic Nintendo, a new device that violates the rules of conventional video games.
Equipped with built-in screen and hypersensitive drivers, Switch is considered to be a worthy successor to the Wii, Nintendo's highly successful console. The goal was to make the smoothest gaming experience possible and allow users to use the product in new ways, how to turn it into a virtual piano or a motorcycle.
With this new start, the company has confirmed that it wants to expand the market for this range of consoles. As a result, Nintendo's shares recovered this year of the optimism that a cheaper switch, more robust games, and possible entry into China will help the Japanese company recover from last year's failures and expand Nintendo's customer base beyond the most dedicated fans.
However, analysts do not understand how a lower-priced device will expand the switching market. In April, Nintendo presented a modest financial forecast that surprised investors and analysts, causing a decline in stocks.
