Nintendo: we will maintain Switch’s current price in the future

Today, Nintendo has no plan to lower the costs of the Nintendo Switch household

For the time being, Nintendo is not preparing a feasible rate cut for its Nintendo Switch household in any way. This was validated by the head of state Shuntaro Furukawa, who during the meeting with the capitalists of the Japanese firm analyzed the retail price of the crossbreed console (and Lite, its only mobile variation), reporting that the Kyoto home means to maintain it at the very same degree as the existing one.

In the words of President Furukawa:

We want to maintain the value of our products and continue to sell them at the current list costs for the longest possible period, which is why at this time we have no plans in mind for a price reduction.

In addition, Furukawa added that:

We want to improve profits by increasing the number of units sold and by selling the family of Nintendo Switch consoles for the longest possible period.

We advise you that, in the last few days, Nintendo had actually validated that it had actually currently gotten to the limit of 42 million Nintendo Switch offered worldwide. By March 2020, he anticipates to offer 18 million Switches: if the numbers materialize, it would certainly imply that Switch would have gone beyond the SNES numbers (console stands at 49.1 million) 3 years after its launch.

We clearly await the market response, also at the dawn of the expected launch of Pokémon Sword and Shield, coming on November 15th.
