Nintendo's worst-kept secret of the year is finally official.
Launches September 20.
Here's a breakdown of the differences between Switch Lite and OG Swtich from Nintendo's website:
- Joy-Con are part of the system and cannot be removed - handheld mode only - will play Switch games that support Handheld mode - for games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers - does not include HD Rumble or IR Motion Camera - the left-hand controller features a full-on d-pad - Not compatible with Nintendo Switch dock. - Does not support output to a TV. - does not come with a dock, HDMI cable or kickstand. - 3.6” high, 8.2” long, .55” deep, vs. the original Switch being 4” high, 9.4” long, .55” deep (with Joy-Con attached) - Approximately .61 lbs, vs. the original Switch being .88 lbs - 5.5" touch screen, vs. the original Switch having a 6.2" touch screen - Approximately 3 – 7 hours of battery life, vs. the original Switch having approximately 2.5 - 6.5 hours of battery life
New update, there will be a internal revision of the standard Switch with enhanced battery life coming in Aug/Sep for NA and Europe respectively. The belief is this has an upgraded chipset that can work at a lower voltage therefore increasing battery life.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
