Episode 9: Nintendo Switch Lite

ENintendo has unveiled the next iteration of their latest console. The Nintendo Switch Lite is the handheld answer to those who don’t need the full “Switch” capabilities of the original Nintendo Switch. Though the handheld is $100 cheaper than its predecessor, it loses a number of features in favor of that cheaper price tag. The question is, though it’s a great entry price, is the $200 handheld only Switch Lite worth it? And if so, who exactly is this audience for this new Switch iteration?
