The latest Nintendo Switch stock tracking information for online and in stores for Sunday May 7th.

Over a week ago, the Nintendo Switch got restocked for the Mario Kart 8 launch. On Friday the Nintendo Switch was on sale online at Walmart.com for $369 in an affordable bundle. Some managed to even buy the Switch without the accessories using the Walmart app. Read below when to expect the next Switch sale at Walmart's online shop.

Nintendo believes the Nintendo Switch will be as big as the extremely successful Nintendo Wii. Looking at the current shortage, the Japanese video game maker has a long road ahead of them to ship 101 million Nintendo Switch consoles.

Nintendo Availability Status

On May 7, 2017 the Nintendo Switch is a not available online, but has been available as part of a $369.84 Nintendo Switch bundle at walmart.com on Friday May 5. The Walmart Switch bundle offer sold out quickly. Rumors though say that Walmart is offering this Switch bundle every Friday at 5pm ET.

The guys over at Polygon managed to purchase a $299 Nintendo Switch while at walmart.com while the bundle was available using the Walmart shopping app. Purchasing the Switch without the accessories did not work on the web version of the store.

The $500 Nintendo Switch bundle at ToysRUs.com on was available this morning for a short time. These Switch bundles are not very popular, but the fact that ToysRUs offered the Switch online is an indicator that new shipments arrive.

The Nintendo Switch will continue to be hard to find for the foreseeable future. Nintendo plans to ship 10 million consoles world-wide in the time from April 2017 to April 2018. From the launch on Mach 3 to April 27, the Mario company sold 2.74 million Switch consoles.

Online stores restocked the $299.99 Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the $299.99 Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con in time for the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on April 28. Since then the Switch console was out of stock online, besides the TRU bundle offer, according to data from The Tracker.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $85 to $100 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $99 to $130 for the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con on amazon.com. The Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con is more rare than the console with Gray controllers, resulting in considerable higher market value.

There are also several new accessories coming on the market from Nintendo in the next weeks. See the full list of new Nintendo Switch accessories.

The Nintendo Switch is available in 925 Walmart stores, 248 Target stores, 27 GameStop locations according to the Nintendo Switch inventory tracker iStockNow (11:20am ET). The number of Walmart stores flagged to have stock increased significant compared to May 6.

When is Nintendo Switch in stock online again?

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch, but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. The demand for the Nintendo Switch will spike during the Holiday Shopping season 2017. Nintendo will set aside a large part of the Switch production during the next months for November and December. This stock piling will keep the Nintendo Switch in short supply during the next 5 months.

As Nintendo coordinated new Switch console shipment with the launch of Mario Kart 8, we expect the company to do the same for the next major Switch game launches. This means the next big wave of new Switch consoles comes in mid-June for the release of ARMS.

The Nintendo Switch will likely be offered in special bundles in time for the Holidays. A Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Switch bundle has already surfaced in Russia. Because of the incredible demand for the Switch console, the monetary savings on these bundles will be limited. Usually bundles offer a way for consumers to get a free game. Nintendo can afford to just offer some savings, unless the demand is slowing down. Read the latest Nintendo Switch news.
