Nintendo Switch Price and Release Date Confirmed
Nintendo answers some of the big questions about Switch.
The Nintendo Switch launches on March 3 for $300 in the US, Nintendo confirmed during its livestream presentation on Thursday night.
Switch will launch simultaneously in the US, Canada, Japan, "major European countries," Hong Kong, and other territories. Pricing was only shared for the US and Japan (where it'll cost 29,980 yen).
For Europe, Nintendo advised checking with local retailers for more specific prices. However Nintendo UK's Twitter confirmed it will be available for £279.99 at Nintendo's official store. It's likely most other UK retailers will sell the console for around this price too.
Rumors had previously suggested Switch would cost in the neighborhood of $250. Nintendo has said for some time that the system would debut in March.
For more on Switch, follow along with the livestream and our liveblog of the event. Another livestream focused on the games from tonight's presentation is scheduled for Friday morning.
