Pricing and Availability
Thankfully, Nintendo understood what we were all there for and quickly cut to the chase. The Nintendo Switch releases on March 3rd of this year. The console will be sold at the previously indicated price point of $299.99 in the US. What does that chunk of change get someone? The console itself, 2 Joy-Con controllers (more on this later), the Switch Dock, Joy-Con grip, and wrist straps for the Joy-Con. The necessary cables are also included. No game is packed in at all, or at least has not been indicated at this point.
Accessory prices were detailed as well, and you might get a bit of a sticker shock. The not-included Pro Controller that just so happens to have a proper D-Pad is $70. If you want an extra Switch dock for another room, that will set you back $90. Two extra Joy Con (one left and one right) will be $80, please.
As for where you can get it? That’s a little bit more tricky. Some sites such as Best Buy opened pre-orders immediately following the presentation, and other retailers will become available throughout Friday. I previously wrote some tips on how to track down and secure the pre-order.
