  • Nintendo (OTCPK:NTDOY) and Tencent (OTCPK:TCEHY) are releasing their mainland China version of Nintendo's Switch console on Dec. 10 - marking an interesting test of the console's upside in a market dominated by smartphone gaming.
  • It's also been available on the mainland through the gray market for a couple of years - which could mean more game availability considering the official launch is limited in size.
  • The Chinese Switch retails for 2,099 yuan (about $300), and comes with New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe and a one-year warranty.
  • Along with retail store distribution, the console will be available online through partners TMall (NYSE:BABA) and (NASDAQ:JD); JD has now listed the console for 2,099 yuan on its site.
  • News broke in April that Nintendo would be opening the Chinese market to the Switch, spurring Nintendo's shares in U.S. trading.
