Only a week ago, Nintendo announced the launch date of its new product. The latest addition, Switch Lite, to the Nintendo family is a console for players and will launch worldwide on September 20 for $199. Considering its competitive price, from the day of its release, many players have started to analyze the differences between the new one and the old one, and there are indeed a great amount of things to take into consideration as followings.
The most important change is that Switch Lite can not “switch” anymore. At first, the Switch is named that way because it “switches” between docked, handheld and tabletop modes, while the Switch title is a handheld console only. In this way, players can not play it connected with other equipment, like TV, other screens and so on. Besides, One of the defining features of the Switch is the Joy-Cons, which you can detach from the side to use as their own controllers, either together or on their own. This isn’t the case with the Switch Lite. It will still be compatible with other Joy-Cons, but the sides are permanently attached and these attached ones also don’t support 3-D rumble. Moreover, the Switch Lite will be significantly smaller than the Switch, which is either a plus or minus depending on whether you carry it in your pocket or not. Others differences are showed in the picture below.
Many Switch players love this machine for its great connectivity with other equipment and people. The detachable Joy-Cons and the games available to conduct among multiplayers have greatly improve the attraction of the Switch. As a result, there are many popular games for players to play with their friends. For example, Super Mario Maker 2 is a game you might not succeed without proper communication with your partners. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the greatest Mario Kart game Nintendo has made, offers an endless supply of multiplayer fun. Overcooked 2 is a blast, even if it’s extremely stressful game for 2 to 4 players. In this way, many people want to figure out that does Switch Lite support multiplayer games?
To be honest, you can still play a number of local multiplayer games on the Switch Lite as long as you purchase a pair of wireless controllers. You’ll need to purchase additional controllers to allow more people to play locally. If you don’t buy controllers, you’re only able to play multiplayer games on Switch Lite if it supports wireless connectivity to other Switch consoles. The Switch Lite allow you to link several Switches together for local nearby play. In this scenario, each player plays together, but they each look at their own Switch. Additionally, the Switch Lite owners can access Nintendo Switch Online content from their gaming systems.
To sum up, the cheaper price of the Switch Lite absolutely makes the smaller device an attractive choice. If you think that you’ll be using the system mainly on the go and for single-players games, it’s a great fit for you. If you really want to play with with other players, the Switch Lite would not be the perfect choice.
