Nintendo Switch Stock Availability Report for June 15
 

This is the Nintendo Switch stock tracking report for online and in store availability for Friday, June 16.

The Nintendo Switch is available online on Friday, June 16. GameStop offers the Nintendo Switch online. The retailer offers four new bundles since yesterday including the first bundle with actual savings. Customers can save $20 on a Nintendo Switch bundle with two physical games. This Switch bundle, aimed at younger kids based on the choice of games, will sell out quickly.

The Nintendo Spotlight presentation at the E3 2017 on Tuesday, June 13 brought exciting game announcements including all details about Super Mario Odyssey, the top-selling video game on Amazon.

We expected that the Nintendo Switch will restocked today in a big way because of the release of ARMS. There could be even new Switch inventory hitting online stores including amazon.com. So far though there is not much new Switch inventory coming to retail locations. 

The GameStop bundles are also not shipping now, but in two weeks. There is still a chance that new Switch stock arrives later today or over the weekend. We keep monitoring the supply situation.

To find Nintendo Switch in stock online, shoppers can use our new The Tracker app, available as free download for iOS and Android. Further below this report features the latest on the in-store availability of the Nintendo Switch. 

We made the I4U News Nintendo Switch summer giveaway more attractive by adding another Nintendo Switch Pro controller to the bundle. Now the value of the Switch bundle we are giving away for free is $500. Enter now here to win a Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and two Nintendo Pro Controller.

Now that GameStop has again no Switch bundles on sale online, the only way to get a Nintendo Switch online now is at reseller market places like Amazon. The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $90 to $120 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $95 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. Overall the Nintendo Switch market prices have remained flat. Read the reseller offers carefully and check the feedback. Some low priced offers have shipping dates in July. 

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. The positive reception and praise of the Nintendo Switch fuel the demand for the mobile and home console hybrid. Nintendo is also busy marketing the Nintendo Switch with hands-on events and at the E3 2017.

Find below the latest Nintendo Switch online availability updates and stock tracking updates for stores.

The Nintendo Switch is finally available for purchase again online. GameStop restocked the Nintendo Switch online. The video game retailer offers four new bundles including the first bundle with an actual discount. Customers can save $20 on a Nintendo Switch bundle with two physical games.

The Nintendo Switch will continue to be hard to find for the foreseeable future. Next opportunity to find a Switch in stock should be this Friday in time for the release of ARMS. 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.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $90 to $120 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $95 to $130 for the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con on amazon.com.

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 next week for the release of ARMS. Besides the ARMS release, the big video game trade show E3 is taking place.

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.
