For the past few months, people have been trying to get their hands on a Nintendo Switch, which seemed to be near impossible unless you wanted to deal with price hikes from third-party sellers. Between the release of Animal Crossing New Horizons in March and a sharp increase in demand due to quarantine gameplay, these popular units were experienced a serious shortage. Most people (including yours truly) had to settle for the Nintendo Switch Lite—the Switch’s cheaper cousin—which was still available. But you can finally find the coveted full-sized gaming consoles at select retailers.

Currently, you can find the Nintendo Switch console at retailers like P.C. Richards and B&H Photo, and you can get Switch bundles at GameStop. However, we don’t expect these to be in stock for long, so act fast if you want one. But it should be easier to purchase the Switch Lite, which is available at more retailers.

The biggest difference between the two consoles is that the Switch Lite is solely a handheld console (similar to a Nintendo DS), so you’ll lose out on the ability to hook up to your TV and play party games. But if you’re more interested in solo play and want to spend less, we think the Switch Lite is a great option—especially in these trying times. 

To help you get your game on, we’ve rounded up all the retailers where you can find the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite and will continue to update this list as the consoles go in and out of stock.
