Nintendo of America said in September that it had no plans to lower the price of the Switch after the company’s European arm reduced the cost of the device earlier that month. The company said it has partially reduced the distribution price of the standard Switch in Europe in preparation for the launch of the OLED Switch model in October.
Last week, Nintendo said the Switch had shipped 92.87 million units. The company expects the Switch to overtake the Wii (101.63 million units) as the best-selling console platform before the end of the fiscal year in March 2022.
