The Nintendo Switch will be restocked at Best Buy. Updated.

Nintendo has shipped new Nintendo Switch consoles to retailers in the past days. Amazon, ToysRUs, Target, GameStop and Walmart have all restocked the Switch. The Switch does not stay on the shelves and sells out as soon as new stock arrives. The Walmart online sale on Friday lasted for instance for only 4 minutes.

Users of our new Tracker app have been able to score Walmart's Switch bundle. There is evidence that Best Buy is restocking the Nintendo Switch on Sunday. The popular consumer electronics retailer did not have the $299.99 Nintendo Switch in stock for almost a month. Best Buy customers report on social media that their local Best Buy has the Switch in stock but would not sell it to them. Best Buy stores are instructed to hold the Switch inventory until Sunday, May 21.

Confirmed. The Best Buy weekly ad is featuring the Nintendo Switch 32GB. Best Buy stores are selling the Nintendo Switch in limited quantities Sunday morning.

Besides this upcoming Switch sale, the in demand Nintendo console is in stock online at GameStop and Target. Both retailer sell the Switch in bundle packages.

The Nintendo Switch launched on March 3 and as expected, the new console sold out on launch day. Nintendo announced on April 27 that the company sold 2.74 million Nintendo Switch consoles to date.

In April, Nintendo sold 280,000 Switch consoles in the United States. The Switch is the best-selling console two month in a row.

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.
