Nintedo Switch launching on March 3 for $299

Nintendo has announced that the Switch, its latest home console, will arrive on March 3, 2017. The console will be priced at $299 in North America and ¥29,980 in Japan.

At launch, Nintendo Switch will be available simultaneously in Japan, North America and "major European countries." The console will be something of a hybrid device, with a dock for use at home with a TV, as well as a tablet that can be undocked for gaming on the go. Additionally, each of the console's two Joy-Con controllers can be used at separate, full-featured controllers, or together as a single-controller system.
