Nintendo announced on Wednesday that it will release the Nintendo Switch Lite handheld system on September 20. The company also began streaming an introduction video for the device.
The compact version of the Nintendo Switch console is designed exclusively for handheld gameplay, and it will be available in yellow, grey, and turquoise. Players cannot connect the system to a television. The Nintendo Switch Lite combines the main unit and control inputs in one device and removes the IR motion camera and HD rumble features. Players will need additional Joy-Con controllers to play games that require motion controls.
The Nintendo Switch console launched worldwide on March 3, 2017. Nintendo reported in April that the console has sold 34.74 million units worldwide as of March 31.
