While the new console won’t connect to your television like the original Nintendo Switch, which retails for $300, users will still be able to wirelessly connect with Pro Controllers, Joy-Con controllers, and the like. The portable device is also easier to tote around (it weighs less than the original). Plus, it’s $100 cheaper than its forerunner and works with every physical and digital Nintendo Switch game with handheld modes that you may already own. 

Shoppers can also score the new Switch Lite console in a special Zacian and Zamazenta version with blue and pink details for just $199. While it’s not currently available on Amazon, Pokémon fans can pre-order the special design, which will drop on November 8, at Best Buy, Target, and Game Stop
