The Nintendo Switch’s price has been leaked way ahead of time by the Candian website of the popular toy store, Toys “R” Us.
The page can be found here and lists the price as $329.99 Candian dollars which can be equated to about $245 USD. This price could possibly be rounded to about $249 and possibly €249 for Europe. Of course, it is possible that this might only be a mistake by the company or might merely be a placeholder but it seems oddly specific and a very fitting choice for that purpose.
If the price is true, however, it would be quite low which makes the Switch accessible to most gamers especially when you consider the fact that it doubles both as a handheld and a portable console.
TechDrake will definitely keep you updated on any rumors regarding this new and exciting console. It is most likely going to be announced in a couple months in the event scheduled for January.
It is reported that both Super Mario Galaxy 3 and Super Mario Sunshine HD might be on their way to the Switch. The console is rumored to be powered by NVIDIA technology. NVIDIA shared this following quote regarding their partnership with Nintendo two days ago:
I guess you could also say that Nintendo contributed a fair amount to that growth. And over the next – as you know, the Nintendo architecture and the company tends to stick with an architecture for a very long time. And so we’ve worked with them now for almost two years. Several hundred engineering years have gone into the development of this incredible game console. I really believe when everybody sees it and enjoy it, they’re going be amazed by it. It’s really like nothing they’ve ever played with before. And of course, the brand, their franchise and their game content is incredible. And so I think this is a relationship that will likely last two decades and I’m super excited about it.
