After it was revealed to the world, GameStop has shared how they are “incredibly excited” about Nintendo Switch Lite.
The specialist retailer not only sees the compact revision as a chance to encourage families to own more than one console, but an important way of attracting those that still haven’t bought a Nintendo Switch.
“We’re incredibly excited about it; I think it’s a real opportunity to grow Switch penetration within a family,” GameStop chief customer officer Frank Hamlin explained to GameSpot.
“I think it’s also a really good adjunct if you haven’t gotten into the Switch yet as a way to get into the Switch ecosystem if you’re presently playing on other systems.”
The Nintendo Switch Lite will be available in three different colors at launch – yellow, gray and turquoise – and, with a smaller design, has a 5.5-inch touch screen and integrates the controls.
The revision does not have a kickstand and cannot be placed in a Nintendo Switch Dock as it does not support video output to a TV, meaning that it won’t come with either the peripheral or an HDMI cable.
The Nintendo Switch Lite will release worldwide on September 20th priced at $199.99.
