    I am a 14 Year old Kid from Germany that likes to play around with Unreal Engine on the Switch...
    Is this possible to get one ?
    Is it more expensive ?
    Will there be any Problems ? (ex.Auto-Update,hacking ?)

    I know that the Switch isn't released (atm) but I think it should be the same like Wii U and N3DS but I don't know how it was with these Devices :(

    It will generally be thousands of dollars, and available only to someone that can prove he/she is a developer.

    Sorry, but it's probably not worth it or possible.

    That's not completely true, I can just say that the price is not much different(for some 3ds and wii u units), can't tell you more.

    ninty hasn't revealed the switch dev units on their dev portal yet... I'm assuming only big companies so far have access to the dev kit

    There are some models with more features and models with less features, maybe video output(for 3ds), maybe more.

    Nope, it will be 20,000$ MINIMUM (basing pricing on WiiU devkits)

    Plus you gotta be 18 and prove youre a dev :/
