American owners will be able to buy a standalone dock for the Nintendo Switch on May 19, but up until now Nintendo hasn't said when it'll be made available overseas. Today, however, the company announced that this summer the dock will be available for purchase in the United Kingdom.

On Twitter, Nintendo UK revealed that a pack containing a dock, an AC adapter, and an HDMI cable will arrive in UK stores on June 23. It's unclear right now what its price will be, because Nintendo does not set the prices of its products in Europe, so we'll have to wait for retailers to stock it to learn how much it'll cost. For comparison, it costs $90 in the United States.

A standalone Switch dock is particularly useful for people who commute with their Switch and wish to dock it at their workplace. It's also handy for those who want to use it on multiple TVs in their home but don't want to unplug any wires.

Since its launch in March, the Switch has been commercially successful. Nintendo sold 2.74 million units in the first month after its release and now says that the console will likely reach relative sales parity with the Wii. Interestingly, the most popular game on the Switch--The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild--sold 2.76 million copies on the Switch in the first month, more than the total number of Switch consoles sold.
