New console launches are such a complicated affair. Sure, we need to know what the system is like, what games it will play, and in Nintendo’s case, what weird new gameplay mechanic they’ve thrown into the mix. However, for those who are definitely buying the console, there’s one more thing to know. What’s in the box? Well, we got that answered tonight at the Nintendo Switch live stream reveal. Here’s what comes in the Nintendo Switch box.
First off, the Nintendo Switch will come in two versions, but don’t expect huge differences like different hard drive space. Instead buyers can choose between the normal black/grey controllers and ones that come in red and blue. That’s the only difference, so don’t worry if you can’t get a specific one, as long as you don’t care what your controllers look like.
Now, onto the good stuff. Inside the Nintendo Switch box you will find: the console itself (of course), two Joy-Con controllers (one right and one left), two Joy-Con wrist straps, the full Joy-Con dock, the console dock, an HDMI cable, and an AC adapter.
Nothing too shocking, but it’s definitely good to know that the console comes with an AC adapter, after the New 3DS neglected to include one, even in the US. Of course, this is a brand new console, not a refresh, like the New 3DS was, so no one was really doubting it would be in there.
The Nintendo Switch hits store shelves on March 3rd at a price of $299.99.
