Skip out on scalper pricing

In time for Splatoon‘s release, GameStop has once again crafted a few “special” GameStop-exclusive Nintendo Switch bundles.

So yes, if you’re familiar with GameStop’s tried-and-true method, they are bundling in games, accessories, and other “goodies” to an in-demand product. Earlier this week, GameStop had four $399.99 Nintendo Switch bundles available for pre-order online (with delivery to store an option) – as of writing, these bundle counts have ballooned to five offerings, with three at $359.99 and two at $399.99.

Before you scoff at these overpriced bundles, they are quite good if you factor in how rare a Switch can still be in select regions across the country. If you want to secure a Nintendo Switch console this summer and you want to avoid scalper pricing, GameStop’s $360 and $400 bundle looks to be the surefire way to go.

Nintendo Switch Bundles at GameStop

Here’s what’s included in each of the bundles mentioned above:

  • $359.99 – Nintendo Switch Neon Gray Joy-Con Zelda bundle: includes Switch console with neon Joy-Con plus a physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • $359.99 – Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Splatoon bundle: includes Switch console with gray Joy-Con and a physical copy of Splatoon 2
  • $359.99 – Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Zelda Mario Kart bundle: includes Switch console with gray Joy-Con and physical copy of Mario Kart 8
  • Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Zelda “Game Night” bundle: includes Switch console with gray Joy-Con, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and a Legend of Zelda Clue board game (yep)
  • Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Zelda Mario Kart Monopoly Gamer bundle: includes Switch console with gray Joy-Con, Mario Kart 8, and Monopoly Gamer Collector’s Edition board game

At first, we thought the bundle with the Monopoly Gamer board game was ridiculous but turns out this is a hard-to-find item that is often sold for over its list price elsewhere online. Conversely, the Zelda Clue board game can be found on sale for $10 off list price… so if you have to choose between these two board game infused bundles, we’ll go with the Monopoly Gamer CE bundled one.

All of the bundles listed above will be shipping by August 1 and depending on where you live, should arrive in time for some Switch action as early as next week. No expiration date exists for these bundles, but we assume supplies are limited based on what we’ve seen in the past. If you want aSwitch and you still can’t find it at your local retailer, this seems like the best bet.
