- The Nintendo Switch has received a price reduction in the United Kingdom and Europe.
- The base model has reduced in price from €329.99 in Europe and £279.99 in the UK to €269.99 in Europe and £259.99 in the UK.
- The new prices are slowly rolling out across the region.
The Nintendo Switch has experienced a massive price drop in the European region, including the United Kingdom. Previously €329.99 in Europe and £279.99 in the United Kingdom, the price has decreased to €269.99 in Europe £259.99 in the United Kingdom.
The new prices are already live on the UK Nintendo Store (opens in new tab), though retailers like Amazon have yet to update their prices in certain territories, such as Germany. Anyone wanting to purchase a Nintendo Switch in the region who doesn't see these prices should be patient as prices slowly roll out.
This price drop comes after around four years on the market, providing another price class for a budget console similarly to what the Nintendo Switch Lite has to offer. The new Nintendo Switch OLED Model, which is set to release on October 8, 2021, is still the premium purchase marketed to consumers, and will no doubt be a day-one purchase alongside Metroid Dread which releases on the same day.
