The Nintendo Switch has been extremely difficult to find in stock for most of 2020 due to increased demand and logistical issues surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. However, Nintendo Switch stock has begun to stabilize in time for the holidays, and Black Friday even offered a great deal on the console, bundling it with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch Online. Though this Mario Kart Switch bundle is sold out as of Cyber Monday, you have other options if you’re looking to buy the Nintendo Switch. These include a Fortnite Switch bundle that has just been brought to the US for Cyber Monday and an adorable Nintendo Switch-edition console that Nintendo restocked for the holidays.

Though outright discounts on the Nintendo Switch are rare, even finding it in stock is notable, so if you’re hoping to buy a Switch for yourself or someone on your wishlist this Christmas, now’s the time to pick one up. At some stores, the Switch is seeing longer delivery times than usual, so you don’t want to wait. Check out where you can buy the Nintendo Switch, including the Fortnite and Animal Crossing special editions, below. Plus, check out some of the best Cyber Monday Switch game deals, as well, if you’re buying your first console.


Similar to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons special-edition Switch console, the Fortnite model has a design that stands out. The bundle comes with a unique Joy-Con color scheme as well as imagery from the game on both the back of the console and the dock.


The special-edition Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch released earlier this year and quickly sold out. However, Nintendo has brought it back just in time for the holidays, and a couple of stores still have stock available. This is undoubtedly the prettiest Nintendo Switch edition released so far, and it makes a perfect gift for any Animal Crossing fan.


The Nintendo Switch Black Friday Mario Kart bundle sells for $300 and gets you a digital copy of the game along with three months of Nintendo Switch Online. This is the newer model Switch with improved battery life. However, it appears to be out of stock everywhere, and it’s not clear if we’ll see it again on Cyber Monday.
