Nintendo Switch Lite Coral Up For Pre-Order At At Major Retailers
The Coral Nintendo Switch Lite releases in April.
Last year Nintendo capitalized on the Switch's popularity by releasing a smaller, lighter, handheld-only version of the Switch called the Switch Lite. Originally released in three different colours (Grey, Turquoise, and Yellow), the console will now come in a new color: Coral (pink). The color releases April 3--just a couple of weeks after Animal Crossing: New Horizons releases on March 20--and it's available for pre-order right now.

Pre-order Nintendo Switch Lite (Coral) | $200
The Nintendo Switch Lite can play almost every game in the Nintendo Switch library, though it doesn't come with detachable Joy-Cons. You'll need to buy them separately for certain games, such as Ring Fit Adventure and 1-2-Switch. The Switch Lite also can't dock and output to a TV, so you'll be restricted to using it in handheld mode. It doesn't feature a kickstand either, so if you want to use it in tabletop mode, you'll need a controller and kickstand accessory--check out GameSpot's choices for the best Switch accessories in 2020.

The Switch Lite is also a lot smaller than the regular Nintendo Switch, making handheld mode a much more pleasant experience. It comes equipped with a D-pad as well, which is a big win for people who enjoy playing the Switch's huge library of 2D platformers.
