Black Friday Deals Tracker is Live

Neon Green and Pink Edition will ship on July 21.

Nintendo announced in Europe and Japan this week new accessories for the Nintendo Switch. The new accessories include the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Splatoon 2 Edition. There is no announcement yet for this funky Nintendo Switch Pro controller yet for the US. We guess that Nintendo makes the announcement at the E3 2017 next month.

In case Nintendo does not release the Splatoon 2 accessories, US customers can import them from Amazon UK. The online retailer offers the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Splatoon 2 Edition for pre-order. Release is on July 21. Pricing comes out to $70 plus shipping.

Many US consumers opted to import the Nintendo Switch from European Amazon stores, because of the shortage. Right now there are more opportunities to find a Switch console in stock at US outlets.

Walmart is expected to sell the Nintendo Switch again on Friday. The giant retailer is offering the Switch in flash sales on Fridays at 5pm ET. Download our new online stock tracker app The Tracker to get notified about new Nintendo Switch inventory.

ToysRUs restocks the Nintendo Switch since this morning in stores around the nation. Lining up before the stores open is required.

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch, but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. The only number the company made official is the production volume over the next 12 months. 10 million Switch consoles are planned to enter retail channels until end of April 2018.

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.

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.
