Nintnedo is hoping to appeal to gamers on the go!

The gaming company has released a smaller, lighter, and cheaper version of its Nintendo Switch gaming console September 20, called the "Switch Lite."

The "Switch Lite" plays all the same games as the standard Switch console... but it weighs less and its screen is almost an inch smaller. Also, the Switch Lite's controllers do not detach or vibrate and you cannot hook it up to your television.

For those compromises, the Switch Lite costs 200 dollars... which is 100 dollars less than the 300 dollar price tag of a standard Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo also tweaked the controller a bit... substituting four directional buttons on the left for a control pad.

Nintendo says players can expect longer battery life from the Switch Lite. The new hand-held does not replace the original console. Both versions of the popular system are available in stores.

The Switch Lite hit the market one day after Sega released a miniature... but not portable... version of its retro gaming console... the Sega Genesis.
