Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch Console Hits Amazon


Amazon took their sweet time getting a listing for Nintendo's gorgeous new Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch console up and running, but if you were holding out to grab one there, the time is now. Pre-orders are live here on Amazon for the standard $299.99 with shipping slated for March 13th. If it sells out on Amazon (a virtual certainty), you can still reserve one here here at Best Buy, and here at Walmart. Stock of the console seems to be decent in the early going, but you'll definitely want to lock one down at one of these retailers sooner rather than later.

If you can't justify buying another Nintendo Switch just for the design (don't hold your breath for the Joy-Con to be sold separately in the U.S.), you can still get in on the action with the matching Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha edition carrying case and screen protector. Best Buy has cases for the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite in stock for $24.99 each (it goes without saying, but that case would pair perfectly with the turquoise Nintendo Switch Lite, which you can also grab here at Best Buy).

Keep in mind that the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Switch doesn't come with a copy of the game. At the time of writing, the best place to reserve a copy is here at Best Buy given that it is $10 reward eligible. It also comes with a free phone badge.


If you want to keep the Animal Crossing theme going, keep in mind that Power A recently released Animal Crossing-themed Enhanced Wireless Controllers that would be a perfect match for your new Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders for the Timmy & Tommy Nook controller and the K.Slider controller are live on Amazon now for $49.99 with shipping slated for March 10th.
