The day that many gamers have been waiting for has finally arrived. The Nintendo – the game boss has finally presented the Nintendo Switch to the public, touting that the new console will be marketed at a price of $299, it will release on March 3 in Japan, US, Canada, Hong Kong, Europe and major European territories.
And ‘Tatsumi Kimishima’ himself to go on stage and announce all the details about the Nintendo Switch, and confirmed that the Nintendo Switch is region-free. Just like like the PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One S, the Nintendo Switch may not need a stepdown transformer or another adapter if you buy it in a country. It might also mean Switch games, unlike games for the GameCube, Wii, and Wii U, could be region-free as well.
What you buy in a country that supports the NTSC U/C standard would work fine in other nations that use the PAL format or vice versa. This however seems unlikely given that Nintendo made it tough to make Miitomo account if you weren’t in a country where it launched.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch will be available from 3rd March, 2017. No further information for Wii U version nor a European release date has been confirmed by the company yet.
Multiple sources close to Nintendo have now told Eurogamer that, at the end of last year, Japan finalised its plans and had a change of heart: Switch needed the strongest possible launch lineup. In short, Zelda will release in March in North America and Japan. Zelda’s launch timing in Europe is still unclear,” writes Eurogamer’s Tom Phillips.
