The standard version of the Nintendo Switch received a price cut in Europe. However, no reduction is expected for the US market.
With the change, the console is now priced at €299.99. In the UK, the handheld is currently costing £259.99.
"We decided that now was the appropriate time to change the European trade price of Nintendo Switch," Nintendo explained.
Nintendo UK explained that the price reduction is in preparation for the launch of the Switch OLED model.
The reduction in the European price means that now the Switch is priced at approximately the American rate.
That is why there is no price reduction predicted for the Switch in the US market.
OLED Switch will arrive soon, at October 8, and will cost €364.99 in Europe, £309.99 in the UK, and $349.99 in the US.
The price of the Switch Lite remains the same, €199.99, £199.99, and $199.99.
