Retailer GameStop announced today that it has received a “limited supply” of Nintendo Switch consoles and is selling them at stores across the US right now.
The timing is noteworthy, considering Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches on April 28. It’s one of the highest-profile releases so far for the Switch, and is sure to help move systems.
“It’s perfect timing to have additional Nintendo Switch units arrive just days before the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” GameStop senior director of merchandising Eric Bright said. “This is truly an amazing pairing of the latest in Nintendo technology innovation with a classic, iconic game.”
The Nintendo Switch costs $300, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe goes for $60. GameStop is offering $200 in credit when you trade in a PS4, Xbox One, 3DS, or Wii U and apply it to the Switch. The offer is good until Sunday, April 30.
Additionally, Best Buy and Toys ‘R Us will have Switch units back in stock this coming Friday, April 28, timed with the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
