Sales of Nintendo Switch started officially in Brazil this Friday (18): the console was pre-sold since the beginning of the month for R $ 2,999, and now will be sent to customers. Joy-Con and Pro Controller controls are also available, as well as gift cards from games like Animal Crossing and Super Smash Bros.
Where to buy the official Nintendo Switch?
You can purchase the Switch on the e-commerce of Magazine Luiza, Submarino and Americanas.com. Besides that, according to Nintendo, it can be found in “selected stores” of Americanas and Magalu.
For some reason, Magalu is charging more Switch and its accessories, as you can see in the table below:
|Product||Prices in Americanas and Submarino||Price at Magazine Luiza|
|Switch 32 GB + Joy-Con gray (Gray)||R $ 2,999.99||R $ 3,299|
|Switch 32 GB + Joy-Con red and blue (Blue Red)||R $ 2,999.99||R $ 3,299|
|Pink and green Joy-Con (Neon Pink and Neon Green)||R $ 499.99||(not available)|
|Joy-Con red and blue (Red / blue)||R $ 499.99||(not available)|
|Pro Controller black||(not available)||R $ 549|
The price suggested by Nintendo for Joy-Con controls is R $ 499, while the Pro Controller should cost R $ 469, but retailers are free to put a different price (higher).
You can also purchase digital gift cards for Switch games: you receive the unlock code over the internet, without having to wait for a physical card. All titles below cost R $ 250.79 each in Americanas and Submarino:
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons

They are also available through the Nintendo Store for redemption via the eShop. For now, the company does not comment on a possible release of Switch Lite; it is worth remembering that it has already been approved by Anatel for sale in Brazil.
