The Nintendo Switch may have been launched last year, but the console still needs a lot of work before it can be considered a success.
So, in order to get Nintendo’s latest console up and running on the new console, it needs to be upgraded to its current state, as well as a lot more of the game hardware.
To that end, Nintendo has been working on its own hardware upgrades for the Switch since last summer, with the company promising a “full suite of features” for the system during its first Nintendo Direct event in March.
But according to Nintendo of America’s marketing team, that suite of new features will only be available in the U.S. for now, and will only work with the Switch’s native game console.
That’s because the company has only been able to get its Switch to work with its own console, the GameCube-era Wii U, due to its limited supply of GameCube hardware.
As a result, Nintendo is offering only the first wave of its new hardware upgrades to the U, including its current GameCube console, which is currently being phased out.
Nintendo also has yet to announce the price for those upgrades, but it will cost between $500 and $1,500.
The Switch will also get a few new games as well, including the highly anticipated “Destiny” sequel.
In the U., the console will get the “Divekick” multiplayer game from Ubisoft, which will be available for $39.99 on Switch, and $49.99 for Xbox One.
And of course, the Switch will get a brand new “Destination: Forsaken” expansion pack, which has been teased in the past and has been confirmed for the console.
It will cost $19.99 and $24.99.
