While the Nintendo Switch price will drop in the European and UK markets, there are currently no plans to extend this globally.
Nintendo tells me yesterday's Switch price drop was just for Europe (and the UK):— Stephen Totilo (@stephentotilo) September 14, 2021
“The trade price adjustment is for the European region only. There are no plans to change the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price for any Nintendo Switch model in the U.S.”
In a tweet from Stephen Totilo of Axios Gaming, Totilo announced Nintendo had told him that no plans were in place to drop the prices beyond the European and UK markets. The representative even mentioned specifically that the price in the US market would stay as is, likely due to fervor in the region.
A few days ago, rumors started to spread that the Nintendo Switch may end up having a price drop. Nintendo later confirmed this but only for specific regions. The standard Switch console price dropped €60 and £20 in Europe and the UK, respectively with the prices at €269.99 and £259.99.
Currently, the prices in the US stand at $200 for the Switch Lite, $300 for the standard model, and $350 for the Switch OLED. Several have noted that the price increase for Switch OLED seems unjustified, particularly because the upgrades from the standard to OLED did not seem significant enough.
