The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Switch Lite systems do not include backwards compatibility with games from previous Nintendo platforms.
There are multiple Nintendo Switch controller options, including Joy-Con controllers and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Compatible controllers will vary per game, so be sure to check game details.
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 capabilities of the console, such as the larger screen size.
Nintendo Switch Lite can play 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.
