In a related report published by The Verge, Nintendo denies that the arrival of the Switch Lite means the end of the 3DS line of handhelds. Nintendo also says the Switch Lite will last about a half hour longer on a charge, with play time ranging from three hours to seven hours. The Nintendo Switch Lite will release on the 20th of September.

The big picture: The Nintendo Switch Lite is $100 cheaper than the flagship console but lacks a number of features found on the more expensive variant such as TV and tabletop modes.

Gracing the internet with one of its signature videos, Nintendo unveiled the Switch Lite.

In addition, Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite owners can get together to play compatible multiplayer titles like "Super Mario Maker 2", "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Splatoon 2" and "Super Smash Bros".

For games that do not support handheld mode, players can wireless connect Joy-Con controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. A Pokemon Sword and Shield design special edition version has also been announced for November, which, interestingly enough does not appear to come with the game.

Nintendo Switch Lite will come in multiple colors.

The Nintendo Switch light comes in yellow, grey and turqoise.

Strictly handheld The Nintendo Switch Lite is a handheld device, that means it doesn't have the hybrid options the original Nintendo Switch has such as detachable Joy-Cons, a kickstand and support for video output to TV.

As for the disadvantages, HD rumble and IR motion camera are not part of the Switch Lite. It features a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 pixels LCD touch screen. As such, it does not support shared gameplay, with two players each using a Joy-Con controller.

As you can see, the system does not look all that different from the Switch.

To put things in perspective, the original Nintendo Switch weighs 399g and has a 6.2-inch screen. Since the controllers are not removable and this console is handheld-only, motion controls won't work.
