Nintendo’s Switch just got a permanent price cut in Europe

Nintendo has permanently lowered the price of the Switch in Europe, the company has confirmed to Eurogamer.

The Switch now costs £ 260 in the UK (about $ 455 CAD) and € 300 (about $ 448 CAD) elsewhere in Europe, compared to the previous £ 280 (about $ 490 CAD) and € 330 (about $ 493 CAD).

In a statement to Eurogamer, a Nintendo spokesperson said the significant price drop was based on “a variety of factors, including currency exchange rates in Europe and the upcoming release of the Nintendo Switch – OLED model.”

For context, the Nintendo Switch is priced at $ 379 CAD, which is $ 20 less than the March 2017 launch price. It remains to be seen, then, if a price drop will occur in Canada.

The OLED model will launch worldwide on October 8 at a cost of $ 449 CAD. It is has been rumored that the base Switch will drop in price in the US to coincide with the launch of the OLED Model. The new Switch features mostly the same specs as its predecessor, with the exception of a slightly larger display with OLED, a new kickstand, and an Ethernet port.
