Nintendo has formally brought down the proposed retail cost of the base Switch model in Europe, Nintendo Life has detailed, ideally transmitting a comparable drop in the US. It’s currently accessible for £260 in the UK or €300 (down to €270 in France) somewhere else in Europe, as opposed to the past £280 (€330), at Nintendo’s true store.
“Nintendo of Europe is changing the European trade price of the Nintendo Switch console to retailers,” a spokesperson said in a statement to Eurogamer. “More than four and a half years after its first release, Nintendo Switch continues to have strong sales momentum in Europe. After carefully weighing up a variety of factors, including currency exchange rates in Europe and the upcoming launch of Nintendo Switch – OLED Model, we decided that now was the appropriate time to change the European trade price of Nintendo Switch.”
A US value drop for the base unit has been supposed with the OLED Switch set to show up on October eighth. The new model has a bigger 7-inch, 720p OLED show with more modest bezels, another kickstand, an ethernet port and speaker enhancements, however no other redesigned parts. With all the other things unaltered, the lower valuing makes the base model a generally decent arrangement.
“We made the price change before the launch of Nintendo Switch – OLED Model so that the price differences between each model in Nintendo’s own retail channel, My Nintendo Store, would be what Nintendo judges to be appropriate for its own store,” Nintendo said.
The Nintendo Switch base model is as yet appearing at $300 in the US at Amazon and Nintendo’s true store, so ideally that will change soon. The Switch OLED will cost $350 in the US, £310 in the UK and €365 somewhere else in Europe. The cost of the Switch Lite will continue as before, the organization said.
