The Nintendo Switch is set to release globally in March of 2017. The price point for the hardware is currently unknown, however Nintendo has stated that they do not intend to sell the Switch at a loss (i.e. the Wii U), which may indicate a slightly steeper price than expected.

As the rumors suggested, the Switch is a console-mobile device hybrid, featuring a fully functional mobile screen alongside detachable controller peripherals. When placed on a docking station, the device will connect to a home TV to serve as a standard console as one would expect from Nintendo.
