Nintendo of Japan to release cheaper Switch bundle without dock

In a surprising move, Nintendo will release a dockless Switch bundle for the Japanese market for about ¥26,978 ($245).

The bundle will come with a Switch unit, two Joy-Cons, and the prerequisite Joy-Con straps. No AC adapter, but this has yet to be confirmed.

This price reduction signals that Nintendo is gearing  the market for the next Pokémon title, a typically handheld experience, by offering a cheaper point of entry. If Pokémon Go is any indication, this could lead to an explosion of new Switch users.

There is no word on whether the bundle will hit the US anytime soon.
