As was promised last month, the Nintendo Switch is now officially available in Brazil. Hoorah!
The console, its games, and accessories like the Pro Controller are now available to purchase at various retailers, with the usual Grey and Neon Red/Neon Blue system options on offer. It has a suggested retail price of R$ 2.999,00, and you should find stock at places such as Lojas Americanas, Magazine Luiza, and online stores like Americanas, Magazineluiza and Submarino.
The system launches with more than 100 games available from Nintendo’s official store in Brazil, Loja Nintendo. First-party games include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Paper Mario: The Origami King, as well as plenty of DLC bundles for top Nintendo titles. Some major third-party titles and indie favourites are also available.
Bill van Zyll, Director and General Manager of Latin America at Nintendo of America, says, “We hope that Nintendo Switch makes it easy for players of all ages to enjoy their favourite games the way they want. Whether playing on the TV or taking the system anywhere in portable handheld mode, Nintendo Switch can fit any gaming lifestyle.”
