Continue reading...Is Nintendo working on a smaller, more low-priced version of its hit console/handheld hybrid, the Switch? That’s what everybody has figured for months now, but despite all the insider analyst reports declaring it was definite, Nintendo has never admitted the project. Until today.
On September 20 Nintendo will begin selling the Switch Lite, which has the same guts as its older brother but in a more compact shell, with three designer colors to choose from. It has a smaller 5.5-inch screen, and since it has less to power up, the battery life is longer (up to seven hours, theoretically). Wifi, Bluetooth and NFC (for amiibos) are all supported in the Switch Lite.
It sounds convenient, but are there some downgrades? The short answer is yes, the longer response is….also yes. It CAN’T connect to a TV, which will be a dealbreaker for some people. The controllers do not detach, HD Rumble has been taken...
