Nintendo announced yesterday that it would reduce the recommended retail price of the Nintendo Switch across Europe across the base model, but this will apparently be limited to the old continent.
In a statement asked about the possibilities in the United States, the company said:
Trade price adjustment is for the European region only. There are no plans to change the manufacturer’s recommended retail price for any Nintendo Switch model in the United States.
In Europe, the base hybrid model is currently priced at 9,299.99 (259.99). Previously it sold for 329.99 (279.99). This change “comes after careful weighing of various factors including conversion rates” and the upcoming release of the Nintendo Switch OLED.
In Brazil, despite the recent tax cuts for video games allowed by the federal government, the company has not officially given any indication that it will reduce the price of the console.
