Where To Buy Nintendo Switch

Earlier this week, we told you that there are two ways you can order a Nintendo Switch online right now and get it shipped to your door right away. If you just want the console and you want to choose your games separately, you can head to the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con pages on Amazon, where you’ll find both models in stock. The caveat, of course, is that you’ll have to find a reputable seller and you’ll also have to pay a premium.

Alternatively, you could have ordered the new “family bundle” that GameStop is now selling. It costs $460 and it ships with three games as well as the Breath of the Wild expansion pass. 4/7 shipments of that Nintendo Switch bundle are sold out, unfortunately, but you can still order it now and it’ll ship out on 4/12.

Now, in addition to those two options, there’s a third way to get your hands on a hot new Nintendo Switch console.

Toys“R”Us has confirmed to BGR via email that it will have the Nintendo Switch in stock in its stores across the country this weekend. Specifically, you’ll be able to pick one up if you head out to your local Toys“R”Us store on Sunday, April 9. You’ll definitely want to head out early, of course, because they’re probably all going to sell out in a matter of minutes.

Here’s Nintendo’s full statement:

Toys“R”Us is bringing Nintendo Switch back to store shelves this weekend. On Sunday, April 9, all locations nationwide will have new inventory of the console. Quantities will be limited and since we know they sell quickly, customers should get to their local store before the doors open at 10am on Sunday.

There you have it, Nintendo fans — yet another opportunity to pick up a Switch. Don’t forget to also pick up some games:

Also, Amazon Prime subscribers still have time to pre-order Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and save 20%.
