Over the past few months, the Nintendo Switch has been sold out practically everywhere—thanks to hardware shortages and shelter-in-place boredom. Nintendo plans to boost production of the home console to meet demand in the upcoming months.
But we have some good news: At this very moment, the Switch is in stock at Amazon (The Fortnite Wildcat Edition). You can buy it today for $299. We recommend you do just that. Grab it while you can. It will sell out.
Fun and Fortnite for everyone
The Nintendo Switch: Fortnite Wildcat Edition comes with the game pre-installed, 2,000 V-Bucks, and a download code for The Wildcat Bundle—an in-game pack that includes additional skins, power-ups and boost, including the Sleek Strike Back Bling, the Wildcat Outfit, and more. This model has a new color scheme (blue and yellow) for its controllers; Fortnite characters adorn the console and the dock.
This is the second generation of the Nintendo Switch, with better and brighter colors and a longer battery life. Like the earlier iteration, it’s one of the best consoles out there, thanks to its wide range of exclusive games including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Super Mario Maker 2, and many more. It comes with two ‘Joy-Con’ controllers on each side—which can be used separately or together.
The Nintendo Switch is a blast for people of all ages—not just kids. Ask around. You may be surprised to find adult friends and relatives are huge fans.
Gaming on the go
The Nintendo Switch is the only home console that doubles as a portable handheld video game system. You can take it out of its dock to play your favorite Nintendo games on the go, enjoying the same video quality you experience on your TV. And with up to nine hours of battery life per charge—compared to the regular Switch’s five hours—the Nintendo Switch: Fortnite Wildcat Edition can deliver extensive sessions, even when you’re away from an outlet.
In short, the Nintendo Switch is one of the best home video game consoles you can get your hands on right now...when it’s in stock. Take this opportunity to grab it for someone on your gift list—or yourself—right now. It could be your last chance to get ahold of a Nintendo Switch before the holidays.
