Game Compatibility

Nintendo Switch – OLED Model

Nintendo Switch – OLED Model is compatible with the full library of Nintendo Switch games. However, the system will not cleanly fit within all the design parameters of the Nintendo Labo series. There may also be games where the game experience may differ due to the new capabilities of the console, such as the larger screen size.

Nintendo Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch Lite can play the games in the Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode.

For games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. If using separate Joy-Con controllers, users will need to have a device to recharge them, such as the Joy-Con charging grip.

To find play mode compatibility information for specific games, please refer to the product packaging or Nintendo eShop.

Just look for the “handheld mode” icon:
