Nintendo of Canada has announced a Nintendo Switch price drop, perfectly timed for those wanting to buy the portable home console to play on their summer holidays.
That sees the console’s price reduced from $399.99 to $379.99, a change that has already been reflected on online retailers.
“Just in time for the end of school and to kick-off the summer travel season, Nintendo of Canada Limited announced today that the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the Nintendo Switch system in Canada will now be $379.99, a reduction from the previous MSRP of $399.99,” the announcement reads (Thanks, lbabinz).
“This pricing change takes effect immediately at most Canadian retailers, including Walmart, Best Buy, EB Games, London Drugs, Toys R Us, Shoppers Drug Mart, The Source and Amazon.ca.”
