The arrival of this console has aroused great interest among the Chinese public, the largest video game market in the world today.

A clear example of this can be found at, one of China’s largest e-commerce sites, which has revealed how many consoles were booked hours after advance orders were activated.

These are the data they have shared:

The Nintendo Switch Blue Neon / Red Neon has more than 27,631 units reserved:


The Nintendo Switch Grey has more than 27,735 units reserved (which means that the Grey option is slightly more popular than the Neon option at the moment, at least in that establishment).

In short, these figures tell us that Nintendo Switch has been reserved more than 50,000 times on alone. And that’s just the beginning, as the overall figure is expected to be higher as advance orders are also available at Tmall and other e-commerce sites.

Finally, Nintendo Switch will have a price in China of 2,099 RMB (about 297$ or 268€). The console will have a trial version of the popular New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Edition installed and the full version of the game will be available at launch for 299 RMB. Other games still awaiting approval from the Chinese government such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey will also arrive in the coming weeks. Other exclusive games are also being prepared, such as Pokémon Let ‘s Go! Pikachu / Eevee, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, Mario Tennis Aces, Super Mario Party, Kirby Star Allies, and Yoshi’s Crafted World.

What do you think of these figures?
