If you want to play awesome new games like Super Mario Odyssey this holiday season, there’s obviously only one console on your mind. The good news is that Amazon somehow still has the Nintendo Switch in stock right now. The bad news is it seems like it might not be around for much longer. The Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Cons is currently in stock and available to be Prime shipped right away. But the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Red Joy-Cons, which was in stock just a few days ago, is now listed as out of stock with no estimate for when it might be back.
Long story short, go grab a Switch right now if you want to be sure you have one in your hands anytime soon. There will be zero Switch discounts next week for Black Friday, so regular retail is as good as you’re going to manage anyway, even if you try to head out and battle the crowds to get one.

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.
