Update October 8th, 1:21PM ET: Best Buy is the latest retailer to launch Switch OLED consoles. You can find the selection, including bundles, right here. If you’re lucky, you might still be able to find one at Amazon. We’re still waiting on Walmart, which may be gearing up to release some. We’ll update this post as the situation develops.
The newest version of the immensely popular Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch OLED model, is now available online. Check out Best Buy’s selection of consoles, which includes several bundles. Otherwise, you may still have luck purchasing one through Amazon.
So far today, they’ve popped up at GameStop, but they quickly went out of stock. It’s the same story through Nintendo’s online shop. But now Amazon has unleashed some stock of consoles. You can find the model with the white Joy-Con here, or the model that includes the neon red and blue Joy-Con here.
The Nintendo Switch was one of the hottest products of 2020, flying off shelves and leading to nationwide shortages in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic as people looked for ways to entertain themselves at home. This year, the gaming giant announced a new version of the Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch OLED, which launched Friday, October 8.

Unsurprisingly, stocking is limited for the Nintendo Switch OLED. It’s already sold out at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target online. Last fall, when the PS5 and Xbox Series X were released for pre-order, they sold out almost instantly—we’re not surprised to see the Nintendo Switch OLED move quickly, but we’ll keep this page updated as more units come in stock.
Nintendo just launched the highly anticipated and long-awaited upgrade to its Switch. The new Nintendo Switch OLED model features exactly what its name suggests: an OLED display that’s bigger and brighter than previous models. You can find the new model at several major retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy. But much like the preorders that started back in July and sold out quickly, inventory is limited and restocks won’t be easy to come by.
With folks looking for fun ways to pass time at the onset of this pandemic, the original Nintendo Switch was suddenly too hot to last on store shelves for long. In that time, we also saw the Switch Lite launch just ahead of that period, but it hasn’t proved nearly as popular. That will most likely change with the new Nintendo Switch OLED, however, which launches in the United States today for $350.
Starting today, the newest member of the Nintendo Switch family of systems is now available in stores. Nintendo Switch – OLED Model has a similar overall size to the Nintendo Switch system, but with a larger, vibrant 7-inch OLED screen with vivid colors and crisp contrast. This new system gives people another option to play the vast and growing library of Nintendo Switch games how they want and where they want.
But that’s not the only new Nintendo experience launching today. Also available is the next game in the storied Metroid franchise, Metroid Dread. Metroid Dread follows intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran as she descends to a new planet to investigate a mysterious transmission. The Metroid series is a sci-fi epic filled with satisfying exploration, breathless action and an unforgettable story. Metroid Dread concludes the thrilling story arc, focusing on the strange interconnected fates of Samus and the Metroids, and can be equally enjoyed by both longtime fans and newcomers to the series.
