Specially designed for handheld play: The game console for on the go
The Nintendo Switch Lite is the compact lightweight of the Nintendo switch family with integrated control.
Nintendo Switch Lite can play any Nintendo Switch title that supports handheld mode - ideal for those who travel a lot and want to play online or locally with friends and family who already have the flagship Nintendo Switch.
Because Nintendo Switch Lite is a game console designed specifically for handheld gaming, it does not support playback on TV.
Players can wirelessly connect Joy Controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite to play titles that do not support handheld mode. This requires a device that can be used to charge the Joy Controllers, such as the Joy-Con Charging Holder (sold separately).
