Switch China

Tencent, Nintendo's regional partner in the Chinese market, has finally revealed the Switch will launch on 10th December for the recommended retail price of RMB 2,099 (US$300). Additionally, games will be priced at RMB 299 (~$42), which is typical for the region. This particular model will come bundled with New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe as well as a one-year warranty.

So far, only New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has been approved for release – with additional titles coming soon. Furthermore, locally developed titles, such as ICEY and Chinese Parents, are also planned to release on the console, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey can be pre-ordered now.

Nintendo and Tencent are working with various developers and producers to bring more third-party games to the region as well. Such developers include Square Enix, Konami, Bandai Namco as well as Tencent's Next Studio. Software is available for purchase from the eShop, online via JD and TMall, or retail via Suning along with many other stores.
