Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle in Stock at GameStop

GameStop offers a new Nintendo Switch bundle for pre-order.

The record-breaking Nintendo Switch is a hard find online and in stores. Nintendo is shipping new inventory all month, but demand is outstripping supply.

GameStop offers two new Nintendo Switch bundles with the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game. Consumers that hate chasing a Switch can pre-order a new Nintendo Switch bundle online at GameStop.com. The Nintendo Switch bundles with either Gray Joy-Con or Neon Joy-Con console ship on May 5th.

The $499.99 priced Switch bundles includes the Switch Console, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe , Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (Physical Copy), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass (Digital Download), and a SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSD Card with Adapter.

The shipping date of this Switch Bundle is a week after the release of the highly anticipated Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The other option to cut the hunt for a Nintendo Switch console short is to order from a reseller. The reseller prices of the Nintendo Switch are around $370 on the Easter weekend. Prices keep coming down slowly despite the influx of new inventory.

The reseller prices for the NES Classic exploded on the news that Nintendo is stopping production. Prices are almost reaching the reseller prices of the Switch.

The new Nintendo Switch launched on March 3 and as expected, it sold out on launch day. Nintendo's comments that there would be enough Switch consoles in March to satisfy demand turned out to be untrue. Nintendo now plans to double the production of the Nintendo Switch. The company plans to make 16 million Switch consoles starting April 1 until March 2018. The original plan was to produce 8 million Switch consoles.

Nintendo announced to have sold over 900,000 Switch consoles in March. The Switch is the fastest selling console in Nintendo's history. To find a Nintendo Switch in stock on Easter, read our updated Nintendo Switch Easter Shopping Guide.

It might take Nintendo until Fall to make enough Switch consoles to satisfy demand. The Switch will be one of the most popular Holiday gifts for the Holiday shopping season 2017.
