GameStop restocked the $299.99 Nintendo Switch in stores.

GameStop restocked the $299.99 Nintendo Switch console in stores for the first time since launch on Tuesday. People visiting GameStop stores report that stores received between 5 and 10 Nintendo Switch consoles. 

GameStop has offered Nintendo Switch bundles all of August. The retailer released a new set of four Nintendo Switch packages this week that ship by September 1 from its online shop at gamestop.com.

The Nintendo Switch sale at the 4,400 GameStop stores was a move to drive foot traffic into the physical stores. GameStop doesn't have Nintendo Switch inventory sitting in its warehouses; else the online delivery date would not be two weeks out.

As demand for the Nintendo Switch is at a low right now because of the summer, you might still find a $299.99 Nintendo Switch console in stock at your local GameStop store.

GameStop's new Nintendo Switch bundles sold online start at $399.99. The Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con Minecraft Fan Bundle includes the Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition (Digital Game), the Minecraft Color Changing Potion Bottle Light - by ThinkGeek, the Minecraft Redstone Torch USB Wall Charger - by ThinkGeek, and the Minecraft Foam Iron Pickaxe. 

The $419.99 Nintendo Switch Console with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con Zelda Fan Bundle includes the Nintendo Switch Console with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Cons, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Physical Game), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass (Digital Code), Nintendo Switch Zelda Play and Protect Skins, and Has-Been Heroes (Digital Game).

The $424.99 Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con Mario Kart Fan Bundle includes the Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Physical Game), Nintendo Switch Racing Wheel 2 Pack, Nintendo Switch Starter Kit - Mario Edition, and Snipperclips (Digital Game). 

The $464.99 Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con Multiplayer Bundle includes The Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con, Splatoon 2, Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Hybrid Cover Case - Only at GameStop, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Nintendo Switch Racing Wheel 2 Pack.
