Nintendo has revealed a new Nintendo Switch bundle specifically for Cyber Monday, the Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat Bundle. It includes special art on the dock and system itself, yellow and blue Joy-Con controllers, Fortnite pre-installed, 2,000 V-Bucks, and a code for the Wildcat Bundle in-game pack. All of that is available for $299.99, and considering that's the standard MSRP for the Switch anyway, it's quite the bundle.
The new bundle, which you can check out below, is set to be available at select retailers today. At the time of writing, the Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat bundle is available to order here at Best Buy for the standard price. That probably won't last long. The console has already sold out here at GameStop and here at Walmart - but keep tabs on those links for a restock.
As for Amazon, the U.S. version of the Fortnite Switch bundle hasn't gone up for order just yet, but we assume that will happen soon - most likely by the end of the day today, November 30th. Odds are it will show up here on Amazon when the listing goes live.

"When playing Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, players have the option to drop into battles whenever and from wherever they want – whether it’s in TV or handheld mode," said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, as part of the bundle's announcement. "For families looking to pick up a Nintendo Switch system this holiday, this bundle is the ideal gift for the Fortnite fan in their lives, or even someone who’s looking to try the game out for the first time."
Fortnite itself is currently available on most major platforms, but the iOS version, specifically, has hit a snag after Epic Games intentionally set off a chain of events that caused it to be removed from the App Store. The legal fight over that decision is ongoing, but the short version is: nobody's playing Chapter 2 - Season 4 on an iPhone right now. Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4 is currently ongoing on the other platforms, however. The upcoming Galactus event is set to take place tomorrow, December 1st, at 4PM ET/1PM PT.
