GameStop Announces In-Store Nintendo Switch Restock

Getting your hands on a Nintendo Switch will be getting a (bit) easier.

GameStop has announced that they will be restocking the Nintendo Switch across all of their retail locations today. As Nintendo Everything mentions, this is the first time the retailer has done so since the Switch launched in March. And for those looking just for the Switch console, both bundles and stand-alone SKUs will be available. 

Over the past several months, the Switch has been difficult to find from first-party sellers. This restocking by GameStop will potentially help prospective buyers find a console faster and save money when purchasing the console -- since third-party vendors have typically increased the console's base price through resale efforts. 

GameStop did not mention if they will be regularly restocking the Switch. However, if you can't snag a Switch in-store, there are a number of bundle options available for preorder on GameStop's website starting August 18.

The next few months will see several highly-anticipated releases for the Switch, including Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom BattleSuper Mario Odyssey, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more information on the Nintendo Switch as it develops.
