According to a report by The Mako Reactor, the new Nintendo Switch model is available offline at various stores across India at a price ranging from Rs 27,500 to Rs 29,500. It is not a fixed price because Nintendo does not officially support the device in India. And retailers depend on international shipment, and charge over and beyond the MRP.

With that being said, the older version which is the regular Nintendo Switch is now being offered offline for a price of Rs 21,000 which is much lower than the offer of Rs 25,000 on Amazon India.

Switch Lite: India price, availability

As the name suggests, the Switch Lite is a leaner version of the existing Nintendo Switch. It gives up on a few features, but also costs significantly less. The Switch Lite launched for $200 in the US. This essentially makes it $100 cheaper than the full-fledged Switch. According to a listing on the website MCube Games the Nintendo Switch Lite India price is set to be Rs 24,999 and will be released on September 25.

The Switch Lite will be going on sale internationally starting September 20, and buyers will be able to choose from a trio of color options – yellow, gray, turquoise. But the new device can be pre-ordered in India only in the grey or turquoise colors. Nintendo has also revealed a special-edition Pokémon version, which will launch on November 8.
