As had been previously rumoured, Nintendo has now officially reduced the RRP of the base model Switch in Europe. You'll now start to find consoles available for just £259.99 instead of the previous £279.99 asking price in the UK, and for €269.99 instead of €329.99 in other territories.

The console is ready to pick up at its new lower price from the Official My Nintendo UK Store – if you want to jump in early, here are the links you need:

UK retailer ShopTo has slashed the prices of its Switch consoles even further, currently offering both colour options for £254.85. You can find both deals below, but note that the Grey version is on backorder at the time of writing, meaning orders won't be shipped straight away.

If you're looking for other options at a wider variety of retailers, make sure to keep an eye on our guide to the best Switch and Switch Lite console bundle deals.
