Nintendo’s hit console, the Nintendo Switch, has now become a bit more affordable. The company has started selling a cheaper Switch bundle in Japan which comes without the dock for TV. Referred to as “Switch 2nd Unit Set,” it’s meant for customers who already have a Switch connected to the TV and thus don’t require an additional dock. It also works well for players who only want to use the console for handheld gaming.
Nintendo has priced this new bundle at 24,980 yen or $225 and it features the Switch console with two Joy-Con controllers and as many strap attachments. It offers savings of 5,000 yen or $45 compared to the normal Switch bundle. The company is only selling this bundle in Japan right now.
In addition to the TV dock, the Joy-Con Grip and HDMI cable are also not included in this bundle for obvious reasons. The AC adapter isn’t included as well which will present a problem to those who don’t already have one.
They can choose to charge the Switch using the conventional USB Type-C solution but if they want an adapter, the dock and adapter set will set them back 9,698 yen or around $88. Nintendo hasn’t confirmed if it’s going to start selling this cheaper Switch bundle in markets outside Japan.
