The Download: Hot for the Holidays - Nintendo Switch Lite

Posted: Updated:

The holiday shopping season is officially underway, and News 12's gadget guru Andrew Ehinger has great gift ideas for all the tech-lovers on your list! He's counting down the top 10 gifts that tech lovers say are hot for the 2019 holiday season. Here's gift No. 1!

The Nintendo Switch was a blockbuster home and portable game system. But this year Nintendo went back to its Game Boy roots and created something truly portable.

The Nintendo Switch Lite takes much of the power from the Switch and shrinks it down to a rugged portable system that plays all the handheld games from the Switch game library. That includes the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games.

Players can wirelessly link up to eight Switch or Switch Lite systems for multiplayer games or connect via WI-FI for online play.
