Over the past few months, the Nintendo Switch has been sold out practically everywhere—thanks to hardware shortages, shelter-in-place boredom and the surprise popularity of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game released back in March. But it’s back in stock (in Neon Blue and Neon Red) for $299 at Walmart! And...surprise! It even comes with an awesome game for free—Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (a $60 value). Go ahead, try to find that out-of-the-way shortcut for yourself.
And, you’ll get free unlimited shipping with Walmart+. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, but a quick three question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)
Fun for everyone
The Nintendo Switch is one of the best video game consoles out there, with its wide range of exclusive games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Super Mario Maker 2 and more. It comes with two motion-control ‘Joy-Con’ controllers on each side—they can be used separately or together as a unit. Trust us, the Nintendo Switch is a blast for people of all ages—not just kids!
And Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a surefire hit, no matter who’s playing—it’s just a great, old-fashioned racing game with nearly 50 colorful tracks you can’t help but love. Historical Nintendo characters make cameos too—think Donkey Kong, Bowser, Princess Peach, Link, Luigi and, of course, Mario.
Gaming on the go
Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch is the only home console that doubles as a portable handheld video game system (it has a 6.2-inch touchscreen). That’s right! You can take it out of its dock to play your favorite Nintendo games on the go with the same video quality (only smaller on its 6.2-inch touchscreen) as on your TV.
And with up to five hours of battery life per charge, the Nintendo Switch can be played just about anywhere.
In short, the Nintendo Switch is one of the best home consoles you can get your hands on right now...when it’s in stock. Luckily, Walmart has it available and ready to ship in a few days, but it’ll likely sell out again fast!
