Nintendo on Thursday confirmed it is launching a Switch Lite console that will coexist with (and not replace) its regular Switch system. Following months of rumors and speculation, which had been kicking into high gear lately, we now know some key details about the upcoming console, including whether it will have a bigger or smaller display.

Nintendo's gamble that gamers would be interested in a hybrid console that both connects to a big screen TV and can be played on the go paid off in a big way. The Switch, despite being relatively under powered compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, has proven immensely popular. Surely there will be another iteration at some point, and perhaps two more.
