Nintendo Switch Games Price Still Under Review In The United Kingdom

The Nintendo Switch games price is apparently still being mulled over before its release in the United Kingdom, where it’s already been lowered after a rash of consumer criticism following the original price announcement, which came out when the console was officially revealed on January 12. There, games were more expensive than they were in other areas.

Earlier, games for the Nintendo Switch had been higher than they were in North America, with launch games such as, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 1-2-Switch, and ARMS launching between 49.99 pounds and 59.99 pounds.

However, after widespread consumer criticism Nintendo backed off and allowed the price to drop, making all three games available for 44.99, 34.99, and 59.99, respectively.

All of these price changes bring the game pricing to a similar price as can be found in North America, and it’s likely that the actual Nintendo Switch games price might be decreased to be more in line with the North American level of pricing as well.

Considering the economic impact of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union last year, it’s likely that the reason for the initially criticized Nintendo Switch games price was in response to the British pound losing value in the aftermath of the vote.

However, Mario Kart, 1-2-Switch, and ARMS are the only games that are going to be getting this treatment, as all of the other first-party Nintendo games that are going to be coming to the Switch are going to be keeping their current pricing there, meaning that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and Fire Emblem Warriors will all remain at 59.99 pounds.

The Nintendo Switch is going to be releasing on March 3 of this year, so you still have a good amount of time to pre-order it if you’re up for something like that, but if you’re in the UK and still think that the Nintendo Switch price for games are too high you might want to wait to buy one until some sort of holiday deal.
