Some Switch owners are worried that the Switch Lite will move developers away from hardware features only available on Switch, and instead focus on the pared-down features of the Switch Lite. In an interview with TIME, Nintendo's Doug Bowser says that when it comes to Nintendo's own titles, that won't be the case.
“Our developers will be very focused on the Nintendo Switch flagship device, and building games that utilize the capability of that machine. With the vast majority of existing games already compatible with both devices, that shouldn’t be as much of an issue. But we really want [developers] to focus on making sure that there are great gaming experiences on both platforms. And it’s based on the type of game they want to build — if they want to build a game that uses much more motion control, for instance, the flagship Nintendo Switch device will be the right one. But, you could still potentially, using Joy-Cons, play it on the Nintendo Switch Lite.”
