According to the latest news, Nintendo is lowering the price of its base Switch model across Europe ahead of the OLED version’s launch. Nintendo Switch is now priced at €299.99 in Europe. It is down €30 from the previous pricing of €329.99. In the UK, Nintendo has adjusted the base model to £259.99, which is down £20 from the previous pricing of £279.99.
As of now, the new pricing is available in only Nintendo stores but soon, it will be available in retailer stores and in online stores like Amazon.
A Nintendo spokesperson said, “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.”
The OLED model will be priced at €364.99 in Europe and £309.99 in the UK. The price drop has created a slightly larger price difference between OLED and original models. Note that OLED models come with just a change in terms of screen and not in terms of any other hardware. Nintendo’s OLED Switch will hit sales on 8th October.
