Nintendo has planned to introduce a Data Transfer system that makes it easy for you to transfer game saves and game data itself from the Nintendo Switch to the new Nintendo Switch Lite.
Reported from CNET through IGN, Nintendo of America president director Doug Bowser said that players will have the ability to transfer game data and game save data to other devices. Bowser himself has not mentioned what kind of system Nintendo is currently designing, but he did mention that there are many more features that will be presented, but these will later present themselves.
Nintendo’s Data Transfer system itself is rarely heard of, but with this news, it can be hope that the Japanese company has thought that a number of Switch users will switch. device to Switch Light, or even having both consoles at the same time.
Nintendo itself was rumored to be releasing this console in March. Even so, the realization of the console only occurred in July 2021.
My latest on new Nintendo Switch coming as early as this summer. There would be two models, and people who’ve seen them said designs of new devices are “different from the original and you’d be surprised.” https://t.co/ZJ18BN2Gjm

There are several things you should pay attention to about this console, both in terms of differences with the main product, namely the Nintendo Switch or in terms of the Nintendo Switch game itself.
1. No Joy-Con
The controller on the Nintendo Switch Lite is slightly different from the main Nintendo Switch product, namely there is no Joy-Con, so this controller is integrated directly with this portable console. Directional Pad was changed to + Control Pad. Since this is a Lite version, this controller does not have Vibrate and IR Motion Camera features.
2. Can’t be connected with TV
You can’t connect Nintendo Switch Lite to a TV like the Nintendo Switch mode which is usually called “Dock Mode”, it can be concluded that this product carries the concept of a truly portable / handheld device.
3. Unchanging online features
The video shows you can still play with regular Nintendo Switch users, so nothing has changed in the online features section. With this Nintendo Switch Lite users and Nintendo Switch users can still do mabar activities.
4. Smaller size
It can be seen in the size comparison listed on the Nintendo website, this size is smaller than the usual Nintendo Switch. By reducing the size of this console, this means a smaller screen and a more compact shape.
5. Worth around 19,980 Yen
This portable console is priced at 19,980 yen in Japan. When converted to rupiah, the Nintendo Switch may be valued at around 2 million – 2.5 million. This price is certainly an attractive price when compared to the Nintendo Switch, which is currently valued at 3-4 million in Indonesia.
This product will be released on September 20, 2021, there are still about 2 months for you to save. For more information you can see here.
