After months of reports, rumors, leaks, denials, and dodged questions, Nintendo has finally unveiled the Switch Lite. As predicted, the new version of Nintendo’s vastly popular Switch will be more of a replacement for a handheld device than a console. The Switch Lite will not have detachable joy-cons, nor will it be able to dock and connect to a TV screen.

A new addition of the #NintendoSwitch family will arrive on 9/20. With #NintendoSwitchLite, it’s compact and lightweight making it easy to take on the go! https://t.co/L70LlgxBrD

Despite some of the limitations, the system by all accounts is still very sturdy and will serve as a great upgrade from the 3DS. It boasts a smaller profile and weighs less, but also has an increased battery life. Most importantly, it’s $100 dollars cheaper than the standard Switch, coming in at $199.99. You wont have to wait long either, as it’s set to release alongside The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Remake on September 20th, 2019.
