By David Tan on Jan 13, 2017

The Nintendo Switch Presentation just ended a few hours ago and we are as excited as everyone out there who is going get one. As for the long-awaited price announcement of the console, the Nintendo Switch will be available for USD$300, arrives worldwide on March 3rd! With that said, here is what in the box when you purchase the hybrid console.

What's in the box

  • The Nintendo Switch Console
  • Joy-Con (Left and Right)
  • The Nintendo Switch Dock
  • Joy-Con Grip
  • an AC Adapter
  • an HDMI Cable
  • 2 Joy-Con Straps

Note that there is a different version of Joy-Con controllers, the one above is what we are all now familiar with ever since the announcement of the console. For those buyers who want more color variation on the machine, a neon blue and neon red version made its appearance, up for you to choose which version you like. Both editions will have the same recommended retail price, so it really is up to your own taste. Personally, the original gray ones will be my choice because it generally looks sleek.
