Keep your eye on this page on the Amazon website if you want to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch anytime soon. You can snag one right now if you want to pay a premium (just make sure you choose a reputable seller with plenty of positive feedback), or you can hang tight because stock is constantly coming and going. Once you get your Switch though, you’ll quickly realize a small problem: There aren’t very many good games out right now.

You’ll obviously want to pick up a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is fantastic, and there are a handful of other games that aren’t too bad. But do yourself a favor and save some money on the five hottest games coming to the Switch this year by pre-ordering them on Amazon right now. As long as you’re a Prime member (get a free 30-day trial here) you’ll save 20% on each title.
