Nintendo isn’t permanently reducing the prices of its consoles, even though the Switch is already in its seventh year on the market.
The Nintendo Switch is a huge sales success, and it’s been more than six years since the original model was released. However, according to Eurogamer, Nintendo has no plans to reduce the price of the Switch.
The information comes from Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa, who says that the Japanese yen’s weak exchange rate and higher production costs are driving up console prices. In addition, according to Nintendo bosses, the looming component shortage is still felt in costs.
Furukawa is also not ready to rule out that prices may be increased further if needed.
So if you’ve considered buying a Nintendo Switch or switching to the Switch Lite or the more expensive OLED model, there’s no reason to wait for at least a price drop. This week, Nintendo also made it clear that next year won’t see any new Nintendo consoles or new Switch models.
