Nintendo Switch Lite – First Look

Nintendo has released a video showing off the design of its new console: the Nintendo Switch Lite.

Click below to watch the trailer and to read more about the device.



The Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch.

It has no kickstand and, as a dedicated handheld gaming device, does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, it does not come with a dock or HDMI cable. For a full list of the differences between Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, visit

The new device can play all games in the extensive Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode*, although some games will have restrictions. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of game packaging and in Nintendo eShop.
