Nintendo Switch: Everything That Comes In The Box
We got a Nintendo Switch into the office. Expect an in-depth review of the console soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to show you everything that comes in the box. Click ahead for a closer look at everything Nintendo Switch comes with.
Nintendo Switch launches on March 3, priced at US $300/£280/AU $470. The console comes with nine launch games: 1-2-Switch, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders: Imaginators, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I Am Setsuna, Human Resource Machine, Little Inferno, World of Goo, and Super Bomberman R. A tenth title, The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, was meant to launch on March 3 for the system, but that was recently delayed.
