  • Nintendo Switch: The flagship version of the Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017 and offers three different playstyles: play in TV style by placing the system in the Nintendo Switch cradle, play cooperatively or competitively in tabletop style with two Joy-Con controllers or play in handheld style.
  • Nintendo Switch Lite: The Nintendo Switch Lite is a lightweight device with integrated controls specifically for playing Nintendo Switch games in handheld style. It is available in three different colors: yellow, gray and turquoise. The Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of the Nintendo Switch. It doesn’t have a kickstand, and because it’s specifically made for handheld gaming, you can’t connect it to a TV.

Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in handheld mode. It’s ideal for those who often want to game outside the house, and for anyone who wants to play together via local wireless multiplayer or via Nintendo Switch Online with friends or family members who already own a flagship version of the Nintendo Switch console. Go to the official website of the Nintendo Switch family for a full comparison between the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite.
