Nintendo Lowers Price Of The Switch In The UK
A lot of people are looking forward to the release of the Nintendo Switch this coming March, but news has it that the console is getting some early criticisms for the pricing abroad. Nintendo has apparently heard all of the complaints and has decided to mark down the prices for some Switch-related thing in the U.K.
According to Power-Up Gaming, this move was done after the company reduced the recommended retail price for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. First-party games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms and 1-2-Switch now have a reduced price tag. Mario Kart is now worth £44.99, Arms for £49.99 and 1-2-Switch for £34.99. These prices now put the games closer to the US price tag. Before the change, the games were priced somewhere between £49.99 and £59.99.
Gaming Bolt reports that, though the base console is considered fairly affordable, everything else that comes along with the Switch has come with a very hefty price tag. What's more, the items are way more expensive when it comes to their value overseas. It's a good move on Nintendo for showing its audience that they do listen to criticisms and have marked down the value for some of the incoming games.
As of now, the Nintendo Switch is getting some good reviews from some game developers that have commended the console for its great potential. The Switch will be the very first of its kind, being a hybrid device between the traditional and handheld console.
A lot are curious as to the reception of the Nintendo Switch on launch day, comparing it to the failure that was the Wii U. Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, however, is still very positive that the Switch won't flounder into obscurity like its predecessor.
The Nintendo Switch is set for a release on March 3.
