The all-new Nintendo Switch Lite is finally up for pre-order, kicking off a long course of by the end of which we’re doubtlessly going to have double-digit numbers of various sorts of Switches. Here’s the thrust: the Nintendo Switch Lite is a Switch that doesn’t Switch. It is a handheld-only machine, with controllers which might be attached permanently to the side rather than removable, like the traditional Switch. It plays all the same games, nonetheless, and comes in at a pleasant price point of $199.99.
Here is one thing to remember, and it is even more essential for the portable-only Switch Lite. Perhaps do not consider $199.99 to be the final, actual price. For one thing, you may need a game: it is practically unimaginable to purchase an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4 as of late without a bundled game of some sort. However, the Switch Lite can be a brand-new console, and brand-new consoles do not often come as bundles. The type of big-name Nintendo games you need is very not often discounted, as well, so expect to be spending something like $50 if you’d like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which you do.
However, that is basic. The Nintendo Switch family can be accessory hungry, and at the very least you are likely going to need a microSD card so that you can truly fit some of that wide world of downloadable games onto your machine. And possibly a case, too, maybe a better grip so as to play longer sessions without hurting your arms. The fact that this factor does not Switch means that there aren’t fairly so many situations that require new peripherals, however, you are still almost definitely going to spend some cash on top of that initial $199.99.
