The Switch will launch on March 3, 2017 in the United States, Japan, UK and other countries throughout the world. It will retail for $299.99 in the United States.

The console will ship with left and right JoyCon controllers, the JoyCon wrist straps that come with L and R buttons for players, a JoyCon Charging Grip, the Switch Dock, and the required cables for connection.
