Nintendo’s Switch Lite now Available for Preorder at Amazon
Nintendo’s Switch Lite is now available for preorder at Amazon at just $199.99. The consoles will be released on September 20th in many colors including gray, turquoise, yellow, as well as Pokémon Sword and Shield edition. They will be released on the same day The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will hit shelves.
Nintendo says there’s no difference in terms of performance between the two models, and you can still use the same accessories. These include Joy-Con controllers, the Switch Pro Controller, and the Poké Ball Plus. Switch Lite will support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC, and has built-in gyro controls.
The dark side of the Switch Lite is that it won’t be able to connect to your TV via the dock, it will use USB-C to charge, like the larger Switch. However the port’s ability to output video is restricted to the $299.99 Switch model that includes the dock with purchase.
