Nintendo has revealed the release date for its upcoming gaming console, Switch Lite. The handheld only device will hit the shelves on September 20th this year.

The Switch Lite will carry a price tag of $199.99 and will be available in four colors: Yellow, Turquoise, Grey and a limited edition “Zacian and Zamazenta Edition” for Pokemon Sword and Shield. It will not be compatible with the Switch Dock and the non-removable Joy-Cons won’t be including the HD Rumble or IR motion Camera. The button layout consists of a Thumbstick and a D-pad on the left, and another Thumbstick with the default A, B, X, Y action buttons on the right.

The Switch Lite is smaller and lighter than the original Switch, making it handier and more portable. The original Switch is 9.4x4x0.6 inches and weighs 0.9 pounds, while the Lite is 8.2×3.6×0.6 inches and weighs just 0.6 pounds. It will feature a 5.5-inch touchscreen with a 720p resolution.

Nintendo claims that the Lite will have a battery life of 3–7 hours which is a slight improvement over the regular Switch which has a battery life of 2.5–6.5 hours. The Switch Lite will be powered by the new NVIDIA Tegra Chip.

The Switch Lite will be compatible with all the games on the Nintendo Switch Library that support handheld mode, but few games will have some restrictions. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of the game packaging and on Nintendo eShop. For the few games that don’t support the handheld mode, users have the option to purchase the Joy-Cons separately, but they will also need a charging grip or a docking station to charge those Joy-Cons.
