If you’ve wanting to buy a Nintendo Switch, you better act fast. The popular console is back but hurry because they will sell out quick.

Best Buy and Toys R Us have restocked their shelves with the hugely popular gaming system. Amazon also has new stock as well, but you’ll have to be a Prime member.

But inventory is expected to be in short supply. The hybrid game console, which pivots between a big-screen TV and on-the-go portable, features a built-in 6.2-inch screen, a pop-out kickstand and wireless motion controllers.

It’s a hot ticket item, so get in your local Best Buy and Toys R Us stores fast. The new inventory goes on sale on the same day as new game Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches.

Since the Switch launched on March 3, its sales have exceeded Nintendo’s own expectations. Nintendo reports that it has sold 2.74 million units in its first month compared with the 2 million the game maker predicted, which may explain why finding one has been so tough.

Meanwhile, I’m still trying to get my hands on a Nintendo NES!

  1. I use to Play Dr. Mario was my favourite game and I miss playing that game!

  2. This truly does look like a great device. Hope it lives up to expectations.

  3. This is almost the same as when Nintendo had supply issues with the Nintendo Wii. I think they’re doing this on purpose to drive up demand.

    Wow, 2.74 million units in its first month that’s an awful lot. I wonder if they’ll make more to meet the high demand.
