Those interested in picking up the Nintendo Switch Lite can expect a longer battery life when compared to the standard Nintendo Switch model.

You can play on the compact, lightweight console for approximately 3 – 7 hours, with the usual caveat that “the battery life will depend on the games you play.”

As an example, Nintendo adds that the battery will last approximately four hours when playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

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.
