It’s still about a a couple of weeks away but local game shops are already starting to hype up the all new Nintendo Switch, coming out on March 3, by putting up pre-orders for the new console! If you’re still on the fence about getting one, check out the video below:
The Switch is an interesting concept, one that seemingly merges that line between console and handheld. You can choose to play the Switch on the dock, which translates to playing your games on a big screen, or you can choose to also play on the go. As a gamer myself, I am HYPED for the switch, although part of me still wants to see what other games are lined up for this console. It may be too early to tell, but a few games have already caught my attention (Zelda, Mario Kart, Fire Emblem, and Super Mario).
Pre-orders are happening now at local game stores like Datablitz, and it seems that the Switch will be sold as a package, with the details below:
- Nintendo Switch Console
- Nintendo Switch Dock
- Joy-Con (L) Blue – there is also the gray bundle variant
- Joy-Con (R) Red – there is also the gray bundle variant
- Joy-Con Wrist Straps
- Joy-Con Grip
- High Speed HDMI Cable
- Nintendo Switch AC Adapter
- The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Game
- 1-2 Switch Game
The Switch will retail in the US for 300$ but seeing as local pre-orders have 2 games bundled in the package, we can expect the estimated SRP on this to be somewhere between PHP 22,000 to 27,000. Pre-orders for the Switch will require a 5,000php downpayment which will be subtracted from the total cost upon launch, which is tentatively scheduled on March 3.
Are you getting the Switch on launch day? let us know your thoughts on the Switch and what other games will you be getting for it? In the mean time, take a peek at arguably the biggest Switch launch title to date, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!
