Amazon finally has the Nintendo Switch Lite back in stock. It's still priced at the same $199, so there's no price gouging going on here.
It is technically in stock – as in you can buy it – but it won't ship until next week. Currently the listing shows it'll ship by June 6. Which is better than not knowing when it's going to ship.
When the pandemic first started, Nintendo quickly went out of stock of both the Switch and the Switch Lite. Likely because a lot of kids were spending more time at home and parents were buying them to keep them busy while they are working from home. Well now, they are back in stock, thankfully, so you can pick one up and start playing Animal Crossing.
Nintendo picked the perfect time to launch Animal Crossing, since literally everyone is talking about it right now. And you can still purchase it from Amazon or Nintendo's store. Since you can just download it instead of getting a digital version.
Animal Crossing is not the only game available on Nintendo Switch, there are a ton of other great games available. Like Bomberman, Rocket League, and many more.
Now the biggest difference between the Nintendo Switch Lite and the Nintendo Switch is the fact that the Lite cannot be docked. So you can't play it on your TV unfortunately. The JoyCons are also non-removable. Other than that, it is pretty much the same console. Which is great news for those that want a handheld console at a lower price.
You can pick up the Nintendo Switch Lite from Amazon, while it's still in stock by clicking here. This is for the gray color, if you want the Turquoise or another color, you'll have to wait a bit longer, unfortunately. But grab this one before it's gone.
