Nintendo Switch Lite is the mini version that we all heard about. It has officially been announced now and it coming on September 20th. There is a special edition version that you can buy, later on in November as well. Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser talked about the games for the Nintendo Switch Lite and it does not seem like fans will be disappointed.
Bowser mentioned that the upcoming games will be optimized for both the Nintendo Switch and the Lite version. He mentioned that most games are already compatible on both platforms and that is something that will continue to be the trend in the future as well. Here is what he had to say in this regard:
Our developers will be very focused on the Nintendo Switch flagship device, and building games that utilize the capability of that machine. With the vast majority of existing games already compatible with both devices, that shouldn’t be as much of an issue. But we really want [developers] to focus on making sure that there are great gaming experiences on both platforms.
The Lite version does not have motion controls but Doug pointed out that it does not mean that you cannot take advantage of motion controls on the Lite model. You can still get joycons and connect them to the Nintendo Switch Lite.
keep in mind that if you are planning on buying the Joycons separately then you will need to get the joycon charging grip as well. This will keep the joycons charged. Doug mentioned that the two devices are supposed to complement each other. He went on to mention the following:
Really offering consumers functionality, color and price point options to help them pick the system that best suits how and where they prefer to play.
The Nintendo Switch Lite is an interesting device which has got mixed remarks from the fans but it is cheaper and that could be what some people are looking for. Teslagrad is one of the games that are coming to the Switch in the upcoming weeks.
