If you’re a gamer living in Turkey, there is some good news. Nintendo has announced that the region will soon be able to get the Switch. Unfortunately, hardware and software is going to be expensive. For example, the Switch console will be 2,399 TL, which is the equivalent of $495 USD. Super Mario Odyssey will be 379 TL, or $79 USD/£377. Lastly, If you thought the Pro Controller was expensive in other regions, then get ready for a price of 499 TL, or $102 USD/£78. CD Media, a Nintendo distributor, commented about the news, so we’ve included their statement down below.
