The Pro Controller will be available as a separate purchase for USD$70.

Buyers will be able to choose between two editions of the Nintendo Switch, one with the gray Joy-Con controllers we're familiar with from past Nintendo announcements, and another with one of each of the newly announced blue and red Joy-Cons. Both editions will have the same recommended retail price, which was also announced earlier in the presentation.

No games were announced as pack-ins during the Nintendo Switch Presentation, but further announcements are expected during tomorrow's follow-up stream.

The Nintendo Switch will be available from March 03, for USD$300.
