The Nintendo Switch Lite is official, here's your first look at it

The Nintendo Switch Lite will be released on the 20th of September, and will retail for $199.The announcement video was unclear if these details apply to the Singapore market, but considering that the Nintendo Switch now retails for we S$459 we're guessing local prices to be somewhere within the $250-$350 range.

"Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more colour and price point options", said Nintendo of America president, Doug Bowser.

Nintendo Switch Lite is meant for handheld-play only. Some Switch games benefit from using a Joy-Con in its horizontal configuration, giving it a layout similar to traditional NES and SNES controllers.

Additionally, a Department of State official tells PEOPLE that "we are aware of the arrest of a USA citizen in Stockholm". One of the young men appeared to hit one of the rapper's team with a pair of headphones.

The Switch Lite still supports WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC, and has built-in gyro controls. While it has the same USB Type-C port on the bottom for charging, it can't switch to dock mode and output video to a TV. A Pokemon Sword and Shield design special edition version has also been announced for November, which, interestingly enough does not appear to come with the game. Nintendo says that the Switch Lite is also smaller than the standard Switch, which should help with portability.

An official Switch system comparison website is now live.

The Switch Lite will feature a smaller build, sporting a 5.5-inch screen, which is a slight difference from the original Switch's 6.2-inch. It also does away with HD rumble and IR sensors from the controllers that bring incompatibility issues with several games. You can still pair Joy-Cons with the Switch Lite, but that's a bit silly when there are already controllers on the device and motion controls are rarely integral to the experience. According to the Big N, the new console can play every games in the Switch library that support handheld play, although some titles will have restrictions. However, Nintendo has kept the same resolution, so games should look a little sharper on the Switch Lite. The Switch Lite weighs around 290 grams, which is about 90gl grams lighter than the Switch with Joy-Con controllers attached.
