We now finally have concrete details for the launch of Nintendo’s new console, Switch.

The gaming giant had kept a lid on the console for months after an intriguing reveal that sent tongue’s wagging.

In an online presentation today ahead of a weekend of hands-on press events and public showings, Nintendo spoke at length about its vision for the console, including its games lineup, features, release date and price.

The Nintendo Switch will launch globally on March 3, for 29,980 Yen/$299.99 USD.

We will update with Australia price at a later date.

    So what’s that in Aus?  On a straight conversion $299USD is $399AUD.

    If we add some Aussie electronic tax to this it could be $450-$500?

    Hmm…..

    Yep…..Slept on it last night and I’m out.  Too rich for my blood at the present.  Will reassess near Xmas this year.

    Though I fear that if I’m thinking this way as a long time fanboy…….How many others are doing the same?

    I’m actually a little sad this morning that the Switch could flip harder than the Wii U.
