Nintendo Switch Lite: Everything We Learned Today

  • Written by Gamespot

There have been rumors for some time that Nintendo was planning a pair of hardware revisions for the Nintendo Switch, and that at least one of them--a cheaper version--could launch as soon as this year. The idea of such systems would come as no real surprise given Nintendo's history of offering new iterations of its gaming hardware. E3 came without any word of such a device, but out of nowhere, Nintendo has now confirmed one of those rumored systems. It's called the Switch Lite, and it releases later this fall.

This won't replace the existing Switch model. The most notable takeaway, aside from the lower price point of $200, is that it can't be docked with a TV, making it a handheld-only device. But there's plenty to know about the new system, and you can follow along with all of our coverage below.
