Nintendo Switch is now in stock at these stores

By James Pickard, Friday, 28 August 2020 14:39 GMT

We’re once again back to updating this page with all the latest Nintendo Switch stock that’s out in the wild, with more availability once again at the likes of Amazon, GameStop, Walmart, Currys PC World and more.

That said, the situation is still very much the same as it was over the last couple of weeks. While stock levels are starting to return to normal in the UK, over in the US we’re still seeing consoles sell out incredibly quickly. Either way, your best option is to grab a Switch as soon as you spot it or risk watching the console sell out once again.

The good news, though, is that we’ve actually seen a handful of Switch bundle deals over the last few days. These have been limited to the UK for now, where a Switch console and Animal Crossing: New Horizons fell to £300. It’s only a saving of £20, but at least it’s a start compared to the dearth of offers since the start of the year. For the most part, though, you’re still going to be paying full price for the console and any games.

Now that’s all cleared up, let’s get on to the stores where Nintendo Switch stock is available. Remember, demand for the Nintendo Switch is still very high and anything that does go on sale is almost immediately bought up. With that in mind, we’re keeping these links below as up to date as possible. Hopefully, you’ll get the timing just right and come away with that Nintendo Switch you’ve been after! If not, it might be worth holding out for the inevitable Nintendo Switch Black Friday offers that come around – as long as production levels are still back to normal by then.

Sorry if you didn’t get lucky at this time. Do come back and keep checking throughout the day as some stock in returning every now and then. Definitely don’t be suckered in by sellers who are ramping up the price, though. Of course, we’ll update this page with any further availability over the coming days.

One of the Nintendo Switch bundles in stock at GameStop

Outside of Amazon, it seems GameStop’s approach to maintaining some Nintendo Switch stock is to pack their bundles full of games and other extras to bulk up the price. Their latest bundles aren’t as bad as the $500 ‘Gamer’ bundles from a few months ago, but still a little inflated. Even though they had a hefty price tag, they came with a selection of the console’s top games and the much-loved Switch Pro controller. Expensive, but more than enough to get you started with your new console!

Even though it’s been a bit of a scramble lately, Nintendo has apparently got back to pre-COVID production levels according to a statement from a representative to CareerConnection. That means we could start seeing Nintendo Switch stock more widely available at all the other usual retailers such as Walmart and Best Buy. Perhaps one of them will just be selling the console on its own or pairing it just a single game to keep the price more reasonable.

As it was such a massively popular item over Black Friday and Christmas, there have been Nintendo Switch stock issues since the start of 2020. It’s something that was only made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic, as supply chains were disrupted and people were looking for more home entertainment.

Both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite have suffered from stock issues.

In other Switch news, we’re finally starting to see Ring Fit Adventure in stock at various stores as well. Why not have a look at where you can find the home exercise and RPG mash-up.
