After being around for some years, Nintendo has decided to offer its consumers a new version of the Nintendo Switch, a household name among game lovers. There have been rumours for months whether the company wanted to give its consumers something new or not. With the proposed release slated for September 20, 2019, the rumours have become reality.

Nintendo Switch s Nintendo Switch Lite – The comparison

However, how does the Nintendo Switch Lite compare with the tested and trusted Nintendo Switch? This article compares and contrasts these versions of the gaming console. Expectedly, the Original version offers more features than the Lite version. Nevertheless, for gamers on a low budget, the latter offers enough features to give you a memorable gaming experience.

You can choose from any of the three modes the Original version offers. These are Tabletop, TV, and Handheld. On the other hand, the new version is designed as a handheld device only. Thus, players who are looking for a simple handheld device will find the Lite more useful than the bigger version. If you want versatility, go for the Original and take advantage of the available options.

Game compatibility is another important factor that distinguishes one from the other. Due to its versatility, the Original model can play any of the available games on Nintendo Switch. In contrast, the Lite model can only access games that are specifically designed for handheld consoles.

However, if you want to expand the Lite model’s functionality, you can purchase Joy-Con controllers. With the new accessory, you can access more games. However, the TV mode games are still beyond you.

Although there is no significant difference in their weights, the new model is slimmer than the Original model. More so, the Lite’s 5.5” screen is smaller than the 6.2” screen of the Original version. Thus, it is sleeker and smaller than the bigger Original model.

If you are already accustomed to using the heavier and bigger Nintendo Switch, you may not feel comfortable handling the smaller new model. However, if you are only concerned about having a handheld gaming device that is pretty easy to use and affordable, you have the perfect choice in the Nintendo Switch Lite.

Nintendo Switch sells for $299.99 while the Lite version is $100 cheaper at $199.99. Regardless of your choice, Nintendo is out to give you nothing but the best gaming console that can take your gaming experience to the next level.
