Posted by Mark Buell on Monday, November 14, 2020 08:38:03The Nintendo Switch was announced a week ago and the first batch of units have already been sent out.
However, many of you have been asking about when the console will arrive in stores and whether it will be available to buy on the day of release.
Nintendo have confirmed that they are “prepared to meet any and all retail demand for the Nintendo Switch”, but have yet to confirm when.
That is to say, they haven’t officially announced a release date, but we’ve been told that it could be sometime in late February or early March.
This week, Nintendo have revealed that the Switch will launch on March 3, 2020.
However that is not the full launch date.
They also have a couple of other dates that are not listed anywhere.
They have announced that the console could be on sale on March 7, 2019, and that it will sell for $499.
That price tag is the same as the current price for the PS4 Pro.
However, the Switch could be sold for much more, and could be available on launch day for $599.
That would put the Switch at a price that could put it on par with the PSVR headset.
Nintendo say they will sell the Switch “in bundles of up to five consoles”, but we’re not sure what that means, so we’ll have to wait and see how Nintendo’s plan is going to go.
While it is expected that the Nintendo DSi will be the first device to ship with the Switch, the Nintendo 3DS is also expected to be available at launch.
While we’re sure there will be a lot of Switch consoles on sale at launch, it seems unlikely that you will be able a bundle of the two at once.
Nintendo have been very clear that they will not be able give out details about the console at launch or at any time, but you can expect to see a lot more information on the console as it becomes available.
In the meantime, we’re expecting a lot from Nintendo this time around.
