The Nintendo Switch lands in China on December 10

Tencent and Nintendo have partnered together for this venture, with Nintendo wanting to "maximise our business in China".

Earlier this year Nintendo confirmed that they were working with Tencent to bring the Nintendo Switch console to China finally, and now we know that it's coming pretty soon.

Nintendo has announced that the console is releasing in the Chinese market on December 10, and it'll have a retail price of 2,099 yuan (around £228.03).

They also confirmed that they've "entered into sales representative agreement for the Chinese market" with Tencent as well.

The Switch was first released in March of 2017, so it's taken over two-and-a-half years for China to get it, and considering Tencent's status in the country, they should be a valuable partner.

"We expect to maximise our business in China by working with Tencent Holdings Limited, which holds one of the largest positions in China's network communication and game markets," Nintendo said earlier this year.
