Nintendo have started their online conference for the Switch system today, confirming that the Switch will be launching on March 3, 2017 in North America, Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, and other territories. This is actually far earlier than anticipated, since the leaks all pointed to March 17 as the release date. This will also be the first Nintendo system ever to launch worldwide simultaneously.

The Switch will sell for $299 in the US, ¥30,000 in Japan, and at prices suggested by retailers in Europe. This is actually at the higher end, since most rumors pointed at a launch price of $249 at most. As of right now, it is unclear what will actually be included in the box- if there is a game included, for instance, this would be a far more acceptable price.

Stay tuned to GamingBolt, and we will keep you posted on all the information from this Switch conference right as it comes.

    Besides mario, not that exciting, games dont look that good (cartoony good looking games as usual), very few serious games, didnt show big or medium 3rd party support, Seems like wii u…third parties threw a game or two, and didnt announce any of there big games for the system. Meh for me, but im sure plenty will love it, ill keep my PS4/X1

    Wished they just made a new type of SNES machine that uses Blu-ray to compete with Sony like the olden days, but guess we’ll have to settle for the SWITCH instead☺
