Just about anything and everything you can think of will be on sale at a discount next week as Black Friday sweeps the nation. But you know what won’t be discounted at all? The Nintendo Switch. Nintendo went from hopeless to the hottest ticket in town when it launched the Switch console this past March, and the Switch continues to be the most sought-after video game console out there. It’s also one of the hottest holiday gifts this year, but it’s going to be difficult to come by since everyone is going to want one. Instead of waiting and having all sorts of trouble finding a Switch in stock during or after Black Friday, grab one right now on Amazon. The Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Cons is in stock with free 2-day Prime shipping, and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Red Joy-Cons is set to be back in stock in a few days (order it now and you’ll get it by the end of the week).
Here’s everything you need to know from the product page:
Introducing Nintendo Switch, the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.
Home Gaming System
At home the main unit rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room.
Lift Nintendo Switch from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode for on-the-go gaming. By sharing Joy-Con, players can go head-to-head while away from home. You can also enjoy the same great games in tabletop mode by using the included stand to prop the system up.
New Play Styles
Remove the detachable Joy-Con from either side of Nintendo Switch for more play styles:
One player can use a Joy-Con in each hand
Two players can each take one
Multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options (additional Joy-Con sold separately)
Slip a set of Joy-Con into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
Bring together up to 8 Nintendo Switch systems for local face-to-face multiplayer.
