For all Nintendo fans who have been waiting to see what the price of the Nintendo Switch is, Toys “R” Us Canada might have given the first clue to what that might be. The Switch is listed at $329.99 Canadian dollars which is around $244 USD, and the description does focus on the fact that the Switch can go from a home console to a handheld. Keep in mind, this price may be a placeholder or error.
You can read the Toys “R” Us product description of the Nintendo Switch below.
Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.
At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friends apartment.
This also doesn’t take into account other variables like taxes and the possibility of the Switch being priced differently in other countries. Nintendo does have a special conference where it will reveal the price and launch date of the console, and it will be held in Tokyo and livestreamed on Jan. 12, 2017.
