Nintendo is one of the big names in the gaming industry and the company is known for launching various models of gaming hardware. Not just that, but they also produce special game-themed versions of those systems. In a series of announcements, the company declared its plans to do both these things. This fall the company is going to release the Nintendo Switch Lite, a new handheld-only model. The model will be available in different colors but its debut will be followed by yet another model to celebrate the launch of Pokemon Sword and Shield.

The “Zacian and Zamazenta Edition” is named after two of the legendary Pokemon that is known to represent the titular Sword and Shield aspects of each game. It has a light gray tone with magenta and blue face buttons and the artwork of the two Pokemon gracing the back. It is going to be released on November 8 for $200 which is the same price as the other Nintendo Switch Lite Models. However, you should know that Sword and Shield are required to be bought separately as they are not included with the model. The games are going to be released on November 15.

The other three Switch Lite models in gray, yellow and turquoise are going to enter the market on September 20. So if you want to get the Pokemon version, you need to wait for a little. It will be released just a week before Pokemon Sword and Shield but you need to buy the games separately.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is basically a new model of Nintendo Switch. The difference is that it comes with a much lighter body and the company has also removed some of the features along with the budget price. The model cannot be used in docked mode by attaching to the TV. Also, the model doesn’t have any detachable Joy-con controllers. This means you are not getting the IR camera and rumble. However, it has replaced the face buttons on the left side with a D-pad.
