With the Nintendo Switch finally revealed and teased, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has started to tease the Nintendo Switch price and lineup. The Switch apparently won’t be coming out until around March of 2017, but in the meantime there’s plenty of time for speculation about its games and prices.

It’s already been implied that the newest Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, will be a part of the console’s launch lineup alongside its Wii U version. However, there hasn’t been any other indications of games that will be coming out for the Switch, though there have been implications of Skyrim, NBA 2K17, and more besides them.

Kimishima’s implications towards the Nintendo Switch price and lineup have come from a briefing call, where he said that the Switch would be priced similar to other Nintendo consoles in the past.

This is mainly to avoid Nintendo selling the console at a loss (that is, selling the consoles for less than what it cost to make each unit). How well this works, however, depends on how the Switch compares to the Xbox One and the Playstation 4.

The original Wii cost 250 dollars, while the Wii U cost 300 dollars. With the Playstation 4 and Xbox One costing around 300 dollars these days (after holiday price drops and other price drops dealing with the Xbox One Slim and the Xbox One Scorpio, along with the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro reveals), the Nintendo Switch may cost somewhere around there.

When it comes to the second part of the Nintendo Switch price and lineup, it’s been common knowledge that a great number of third-party games will be coming to the Switch, alongside the Nintendo lineup, but we’ll have to wait until January of next year in order to see exactly what else the Nintendo Switch will come with.
