A price tag and potential pre-order information have been leaked in regard to the new Nintendo Switch hardware. The console, which is still tentatively known as the Nintendo Switch Pro, has a true next-gen console price tag to go along with its rumored high-end specs. According to one leak, fans may need to start emptying bank accounts within days.

There has been a lot of “noise” lately about the successor to the Nintendo Switch console, which has appeared in news items under a variety of names. However, a couple of alleged retailer-based leaks have seemingly revealed the next-gen console’s true name, price tag, and even possible pre-order date details. It’s likely some of this leaked retailer information comes from placeholders, so for the moment a pinch of salt is required when dealing with this Nintendo Switch Pro information.

So according to a screenshot taken from an inventory database for the French electronics retailer Boulanger, the name of the console is Nintendo Switch Pro. It has to be pointed out here that whoever altered the database may be using that name simply as a placeholder until Nintendo dishes out the official details. Along with a name, the same source offers up a potential Switch Pro price too: €399. At the current exchange rate, that amount is equivalent to US$484/£343/AUD$632/CAD$586.

The original Nintendo Switch was launched at €329.99, so there is quite a price hike, but this is to be expected considering the four-year time difference and the alleged specs of the Nintendo Switch Pro (OLED screen, new Nvidia processor, DLSS, 4K, etc.). Such a daring price point would put the Switch Pro on equal footing with the digital edition of the PS5, giving some idea of what it could cost in other key markets (US$399/£359/AUD$599/CAD$499).

Whether or not Nintendo is actually planning on taking on Sony in regard to pricing tactics could be revealed soon according to a separate leak posted by Centro LEAKS. This source claims that “a new Switch hardware-related listing will go live on June 4” (possibly related to the recent Amazon Mexico blunder). GameRant speculates that this could be the Nintendo Switch Pro pre-order date, although it’s worth keeping in mind that a date of June 30 has also been mentioned in this context.
