Nintendo Switch to launch on March 3 for $299

Nintendo Switch launches March 3 for $299

Nintendo Switch will launch in Japan, the U.S., Canada, major European countries, and other territories on March 3, 2017 for $299 / 29,980 yen, Nintendo announced. (For Europe, please check with your local retailer.)

The system will offer an online service that allows friends to invite each other to play online together, set play appointments, and more from their smartphones. Online services will be free at launch, but become a paid service in fall 2017.

All Switch software will be region-free.

Battery life varies by game, but will range from 2.5 hours to 6.5 hours.

The screen uses a touch panel.

Up to eight Nintendo Switch systems can be connected for local wireless multiplayer gaming.

The Joycon controllers attached to the sides of the hardware will be available in traditional black, Neon Red, and Neon Blue color variations. There are also wrist straps with more prominent L and R buttons. The controller has motion sensors, a built-in IR camera, and HD rumble.
