We can now confirm that the new Nintendo Switch with upgraded battery life has started arriving into JB Hi-Fi stores today. We confirmed with multiple stores in both Melbourne and Sydney who started receiving their first shipment today.
These consoles won’t be actively marketed, so you’ll need to ask for them if you want the new model (it’s available in Neon and Grey). It’s in a brand new looking box and you’ll have to pay $449 if you want one of the new ones.
We haven’t been able to confirm if EB Games stores have stock as of yet, but we know that they were also expecting them in early August.
The new Nintendo Switch has nearly double the battery life of the original lasting somewhere between 6 and 9 hours, which is pretty impressive.
