The Nintendo Switch was released in 2017 and officially arrived in Brazil only in 2020, with prices starting at Rs 3,000. It can now be found in the Brazilian market at more affordable prices: for example, the Amazon console in the simplest model costs at least $ 1582. In addition to the standard Nintendo Switch, there is Switch Lite, which is only convenient and does not connect to a TV, and OLED, which has better image quality thanks to more modern resolution technologies and more storage capacity.
Three models are current and have a good offer in the market. Nevertheless, they have different prices and offers, always keeping the portable offer as a basis. Also worth noting is that with major series like The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario and Donkey Kong, you can enjoy any version. Check out below for more details on models and prices to buy Switch in Brazil in 2022.

The original model of the console was released in Brazil in September 2020 and its official price was announced at 2,999 R $. It can be viewed in the version with gray or blue and red Joy-Con controllers. Currently, in 2022, it is offered in various promotions with different discounts. You can already find it on Amazon for Rs 2,344, Rs 655 less than the original price.
The traditional version of the Switch comes with a TV mounting dock. Also, Joy-Cons is removable, making it ideal for use as a desktop console. In terms of performance, the other variations lack nothing but a battery that may last a little less than in more modern versions. The difference is not so great, so it can be a good option for those who want a really hybrid and more economical version of the console.

The Nintendo Switch Lite version landed in Brazil in 2021, although it was released in 2019 in other countries. The model is designed for those who prefer to have only a laptop, without the possibility of using it as a desktop console. It therefore has no connection to the TV and also does not remove Joy-Con pages. The whole body is fixed and unique, be careful when playing games, as some multiplayer players require separate fun. In the Brazilian market, Lite is available in coral, turquoise and yellow. The equipment is the same as the original, but its battery lasts 1-2 hours longer.
Exclusive portability is also a way to increase the cost of the console, making it the most economical of the three versions. Its official price is 1899 R $, but it can be bought at an even lower price as there are several discounts. It can be found on Amazon from 1582 R $, with a 5% discount on its total cost.

The Nintendo Switch OLED was released in 2021 and Nintendo has not yet officially released it in Brazil. Those who want to buy should choose outsourced importers, which does not make buying impossible, but can be a hindrance for those seeking services with support and warranty. The company only sells the traditional edition and Switch Lite here.
In terms of offerings, this model is closer to the original: with it, it is possible to separate the Joey cones and attach them to the TV. The difference is in the screen with 7-inch OLED technology, which displays images with greater clarity and resolution. Another welcome upgrade of the version is 64 GB of memory, twice as much as other versions.

Because it is not officially sold in Brazil, prices range from Rs 2800 to Rs 3,000. On Amazon, through imports, the most affordable price is Rs 2,712. It should be noted that this is the most expensive version not only because of the latest, but also because of the OLED technology, which is more modern and attractive.
