really, to be honest, Nintendo technically closed out their line of portables. The Lite is a totally different concept for them, a different animal. The Lite is an oddball. The Switch is a hybrid that embodies a home console that is also portable. That is why it is called a Switch. And the Switch Lite is technically not a Switch but a portable of the Switch, which is why it is called a Lite.
There is that reorientation of perspective to adjust to the difference, the oddball portable of a hybrid portable console.
It is a dedicated portable that does play the same games as the Switch. This is a first for Nintendo and a new direction in their perspective for portable gaming. I donít know why, but my mind drifts toward the thought, where will they go from here? What does the next generation hold for Nintendo? Portable gaming has been the field where they have dominated. I do find it interesting how they have handled, maneuvered around, the competition of tablets and smart phones.
I guess the reason I see it as a descendant of the GBA line, it is flat, open, gamecard slot at the top, with the screen vulnerable to scratches and nicks, looks like a deformed mutant GBA to me. I cannot get that out of my mind. This is so gameboyish in design to me, sorry. A lot more powerful though.
