Nintendo Offers Cheaper Switch Set Without Dock in Japan
  • Nintendo Introduces Cheaper Dockless Nintendo Switch Second Unit Set for Japan

Nintendo brings a cheaper Nintendo Switch Second Unit Set minus some major accessories like the TV/charging dock, power cord, Joy-con grip and HDMI cable but only to Japan

Nintendo announced earlier this year that they will not be bringing an updated version of Nintendo Switch in the market. Instead, they would be focusing on getting a Nintendo Switch in every household.

In extension, Nintendo aspires to have a gaming console in each family member's hands. If you have played on Nintendo Switch, you already know how much everyone loves the portable gaming console. There have been fights already about whose turn it is to play.

Nintendo seems to have found a solution to the possibility of a second set. Nintendo announced that they will be bringing a Nintendo Switch Second Unit Set to the market in Japan soon.

The new cheaper set will include, a Switch unit with left and right Joy-Cons and two Joy Con straps. It will be missing a dock, Joy Con grip, AC adapter and HDMI cable.

That means that this 2nd set will operate as a handheld console only. It cannot be docked and played in docked mode. That is alright for some especially when they are playing with friends and family and only need a handheld console. The 2nd set will be available in Japan only.

According to the developers, there are some modifications that they have to the console that they can only get to do in Japan. The new set will be available at a price of 24,980 yen.

That’s 5,000 yen (about $45) cheaper than the original Nintendo Switch gaming console. Fans are hoping that the set will see success in the Japanese market and Nintendo will bring it to the global market soon.
