Nintendo Switch Release Date and Price Leaked (Possibly)

Coming soon?


UK retailer GameSeek has listed Nintendo's new Switch console for a March 17 release, as well as stating a price of £198.50 (around USD $245).

It's important to note that both pieces of information could simply be placeholders--GameSeek does use temporary dates for games with unconfirmed release schedules, though Nintendo has previously said the Switch will launch in March. GameSeek does offer a preorder price guarantee, however, so if the console's final price is higher you'd still pay £198.50.

Now Playing: Nintendo Switch - Reveal Trailer

The potential leak comes just days ahead of the Switch's January 12 / 13 reveal livestream. Nintendo recently re-registered a trademark for its acclaimed 2002 horror title Eternal Darkness, fuelling rumors of a re-release.

The platform is rumored to be getting a third version of Pokemon Sun and Moon, as well as a new 3D Mario and a port of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Nintendo first unveiled the Switch in October, before teasing that more details would be revealed soon. We may officially find out the system's price tag and full specs, as well as a release date.
