Nintendo has announced a new portable-only version of the Nintendo Switch, called the Nintendo Switch Lite. This new version is smaller, lighter, and cheaper than its original counterpart, but is also missing some features from its predecessor.

In the updated design, TV Dock compatibility, detachable JoyCons, HD rumble, and IR sensors for motion controls have been removed. This means that only games that are playable in handheld mode are compatible with the Lite, eliminating a few such as Super Mario Party.

The Nintendo Switch Lite drops on September 20 for $199.99 USD ($100 cheaper than the Nintendo Switch) in three colors: yellow, gray, and turquoise. There is also a Pokémon Sword and Shield Special Edition version which will release on November 8. Check out the trailer below, and scroll down to compare the specs between the Lite and original Nintendo Switch.
