Aussie Bargain Roundup: Nintendo Switch Launch Lineup

by Daniel VuckovicMarch 3, 2017

It’s going to be an expensive launch for the Switch, new hardware, new accessories and of course new games. With the Switch being region free however, while there might not be many games overall being released at retail, there’s a lot more stores to pick from.

We’ve gone through all the Australia retailers and most of the big importers to try and find you some deals on the launch line up. Nintendo’s stuff remains pretty close to RRP all around but its the third party stuff that is where some savings can come in.

Perhaps a plan of attack would be to buy one game on launch locally and then import the rest from overseas. Individual shipping on games basically negates any savings – bundle them and it might be worth not buying local.

As always if you see a bargain on a site, let us know in the comments and share it with the community!
