Nintendo Switch Restock Happening at GameStop Just in Time for Splatoon 2’s Launch

Gamestop Splatoon 2 Launch

Splatoon 2 launches later this week and Switch owners are eager to start splatting away in what has been one of the most anticipated games of the summer for the Nintendo Switch. However, there are plenty of fans that have not been lucky in their hunt for the console at a reasonable, non-marked up price or have simply been waiting for Splatoon 2 to make the jump into the new hybrid portable/home console. Well, GameStop seems quite aware of this demand and is answering it with more Switch shipments just in time for the GameStop Splatoon 2 launch.

The video game-focused retailer in the U.S. announced that “select stores” will receive a limited increase of Nintendo Switch consoles to their inventory during this week up until the Splatoon 2 release on July 21st. There is no specification as to which locations will be receiving these additional Switch units, so it would be advised to anyone looking for a Switch to call their local GameStop store in advance. The consoles will be available in the standard $300, as well as bundles that will include various games and accessories.

GameStop also has several Nintendo Switch accessories available for 20% off until July 29th, including a racing wheel 2-pack for $11.99 and a Joy-Con charging station for $19.99. Hopefully some Switch hunters out there will be able to obtain a Switch and learn what it means to be both a kid and a squid this weekend.
