We went hands-on with Nintendo’s smaller, cheaper Switch.

Last month, Nintendo pulled back the curtain on the Switch Lite–a smaller, more affordable iteration of its popular hybrid system. Unlike the standard Switch, which is able to function as either a handheld or home console, the Lite is tailored specifically for portable use. As a result, it’s missing some of the system’s most distinctive features: It isn’t able to connect to a television, it has no built-in kickstand, so you can’t set it up for tabletop play without an additional accessory, and it eschews detachable controllers in favor of a solid body design.
