Nintendo Switch stock is back at Gamestop
While the Nintendo Switch stock problems in the UK appear to be coming under control, the same can’t be said for the United States.
While brick and mortar stores remain the best options for most fans, tracking down a unit can still take time.
Nintendo Switch stock is back at Gamestop this week, with the company revealing a big new expensive bundle.
Fans can now buy either the Nintendo Switch Gray Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle, or Neon alternative, although both will set you back $499.99.
Online, this remains a pre-purchase option, with the Nintendo Switch and its games being delivered on May 5, 2017.
The Nintendo Switch Gray Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle includes: The Nintendo Switch Console with Gray Joy-Con, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (Physical Game), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass (Digital Download), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Physical Game), and a SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSD Card with Adapter.

Fans should note that items sold as part of this bundle will not be applicable for return on any products, unless the bundle is returned complete and in sealed new condition.
If you take a look at each item, it appears that the new Gamestop bundle adds up to around $500, so there is value for money, if you have it to spare.
It follows the news that while the Nintendo Classic Mini may have been prematurely sent to the scrapheap, a follow-up is reportedly already in the works.
The Mini NES retro reboot was officially discontinued last week, as Nintendo told fans that stores would receive their final shipments in April.

The miniature SNES is currently being developed ahead of its Christmas release date, according to Eurogamer.
There's no word on the games list, but Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Super Mario World and the original Mario Kart seem like good bets.
As for the Mini NES, Nintendo has given fans hope of a return, telling customers that production had ended "for now".
"This product has ended production for now. When production is being resumed, we will tell you on our website," reads a Nintendo of Japan statement.
Nintendo recently said that the console was never intended to be a long-term product, and that additional units were only manufactured to satisfy demand.
