When to find good Nintendo Switch Lite bundles

Nintendo Switch Lite bundles will pick up around key gifting periods of the year. That means you'll see the console on sale far more often around November and December, with stock potentially running dry into January. However, there are other periods of the year in which you'll find some great Nintendo Switch Lite sales.

With big new game releases, Nintendo will typically bundle their latest game with Nintendo Switch Lite consoles to try and shift a few extra units. That means you'll be on the lookout for Nintendo Switch Lite sales around these key dates.

Nintendo Lite Case

What is the Nintendo Switch Lite price?

The MSRP Nintendo Switch Lite price in the US is $199.99. In the UK the RRP is down as £199.99. And in Australia the Switch Lite costs $329.99. So make sure you're not paying any more than these prices unless you're getting some additional extras like extra games or accessories.

What colors does the Nintendo Switch Lite come in?

Most stores are stocking the Nintendo Switch Lite in coral pink, yellow, gray or turquoise. We've shown the prices for each of these versions above. These are the main colors but Pokemon fans have one extra option to consider.

The Nintendo Switch Lite Zacian and Zamazenta Edition was released in November to celebrate the upcoming release of the Pokemon Sword and Shield titles. This console is a lighter gray and has blue controls on the left and red on the right. There's an etched illustration of the characters on the back too. It's important to remember that this version does not come with either game.

How is the Nintendo Switch Lite different?

Nintendo

The Nintendo Switch Lite cannot be used to play games on your TV. It does not come with a dock and you can't plug an HDMI cable into it from your TV. There are no plans to release a separate dock to make it compatible with TVs and you can not use the dock that comes with an original Nintendo Switch either.

The screen on the Switch light measures 5.5-inches across compared to 6.2-inches on the full-sized Nintendo Switch - both display a 720p resolution.

A small number of Nintendo Switch games are not fully playable in handheld mode so they won't work properly with a Switch Lite either unless you use an additional controller like the Pro controller or a pair of Joy-Cons (all sold separately). So anything that needs to be played in docked or tabletop mode is going to be a bit of a pain. We're mainly talking about titles like Mario Party, 1-2 Switch, Fitness Boxing, Just Dance and Nintendo Labo.

Until you pick up some Joy-Cons you'll also have zero access to any sort of optional motion controls either which is a shame for using weapons like bows and swords in games like Zelda or Skyrim. Once you buy those additional Joy-Con controllers, you're very close to the price of a regular Nintendo Switch which comes with a pair anyways. There are no rumble vibration features in the Lite either. So far, we haven't seen any Nintendo Switch Lite bundles offering these controllers in with the price but if we hear of any you can bet they'll be right here.

Nintendo Handheld Systems

Why is the Nintendo Switch Lite cheaper?

The Nintendo Switch Lite features a smaller screen than the regular Nintendo Switch and does not feature removable controllers. The biggest difference though is that you can not play it on a TV as there's no way to 'dock it'. So while you're making a saving, it might be worth opting for the full-size version instead if you want to play games on the TV too at some point.

Should I buy a regular Nintendo Switch or a Lite?

The Nintendo Switch Lite would arguably be a great purchase for families that already own a regular Nintendo Switch and multiple people regularly want to play at once (but perhaps a different game). And if some of them generally play in handheld mode away from the TV most of the time already then even better. You can also use your regular Switches controllers to reclaim the motion controls on games too.

If you don't own a Switch already, the lower price point is very tempting, but we think you'd be missing out on some of the Switch's best features by removing motion controls from games. And once you've paid for a set of controllers too you've basically paid the price of a regular Switch.

Not being able to play games on your TV is really going to hurt when you fire up gorgeous classics like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, The Witcher 3 or Super Mario Odyssey. These are titles that are much more enjoyable on the big screen at home.

If you travel a lot though and are going to spend most of your Switch gaming time on a commute or in the back of a car, then the Switch Lite might be a solid pick for you or the family.
