When Nintendo decided to release another console after the Wii U that was also built around the idea of a screened controller we had our doubts–especially with weird little detachable controllers called Joy Cons. We were wrong. The Nintendo Switch is awesome, and one of the best parts is the ability to take your games on the go. Nintendo is doubling down on that with the new dedicated handheld Nintendo Switch Lite. It can’t be connected to your TV. It doesn’t have detachable controllers, and it doesn’t have motion / IR / rumble features like the normal Switch Joy Con controllers. It’s also significantly smaller and lighter than the original. Most importantly, it does play all Switch games that support handheld mode. You’ll still be able to get your Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey, Smash Bros or Zelda fix on the go without losing the ability for local wireless or online play with your friends. The Nintendo Switch Lite comes out September 20 in yellow, gray and turquoise colors.
