Good news for indie developers hoping to get on Nintendo's latest console. Japan reports that the Nintendo Switch developer kit price is approximately 50,000 yen, or $450 USD, according to Nintendo representative Masaru Mitsuyoshi. Mitsuyoshi made an appearance at the Japanese Game Creators Conference 2017 and let slip the developer kit price, which is slightly higher than the cost of the Switch.

For comparison, the Wii U developer kit is rumored to be around $5,000 USD, and the Nintendo 3DS developer kit coming in around $3,950 for full functionality.

Developers interested in the Nintendo Switch should register on the Nintendo Developer Portal.
