Nintendo Switch Shows Up at over 800 Target Stores Monday Morning

Target receives new Nintendo Switch shipment. Updated.

Target appears to have received a major shipment of the Nintendo Switch on Monday morning. The number of Target stores with Nintendo Switch in stock jumped to 843 stores, up 600 compared to Sunday, according to the Nintendo Switch inventory tracking data of iStockNow. T

arget also offers online ordering with store pickup of the Nintendo Switch on target.com. More Target stores keep getting reported to have the Nintendo Switch in stock.

Last week major stores restocked the Nintendo Switch including Amazon, Best Buy and ToysRUs. Target did offer a Switch bundle last week, but not the console. Consumers who missed out on the Switch restocking event yesterday at Best Buy, can try Monday morning their local Target store.

Another Switch sale that we know is coming is hosted by Walmart online. Walmart is expected to sell the Nintendo Switch again online at 5pm ET on Friday. Shoppers can get notified when the sale begins with The Tracker app.

Our new Tracker app will also alert users about any online availability of the Switch at major retailer. Over 100 users scored the Nintendo Switch on Amazon last week, in the Prime member only sale.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $91 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. Getting a bundle from an official store makes sense as long as customers wanted to by the bundle games anyway.

Besides GameStop the only known online shop that sells the Nintendo Switch online is Walmart. 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.

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. The big upcoming Switch games are Arms on June 16 and Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers pre-order discounts on both of the titles for Prime members to the tune of 20%.

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.
