Nintendo has said it will release its long-awaited new console, the Nintendo Switch, on 3 March.
It will cost $299.99 in the US and 29,980 yen ($260) in Japan, more than most analysts had been expecting. European prices were not announced.
The stakes are high for the Japanese firm after its most recent console, the Wii U, failed to replicate the success of the original Wii.

Games will be delivered on small cartridges, a nod to older Nintendo consoles.
The firm says that about 80 games were in development, including a new Mario game called Super Mario Odyssey, out late in 2017.
