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.
