Nintendo Switch Restock: Walmart Gets Exclusive Splatoon 2 Bundles

Gamers still looking for a Nintendo Switch will be glad to hear that Walmart will receive a restock of the hybrid console as part of an exclusive Splatoon 2 bundle.

Starting Sept. 8, Walmart stores across the United States will receive allotments of the exclusive Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch bundle. The bundle includes a download code for Splatoon 2, a carrying case and the special Neon Pink and Neon Green Joy-Cons. The exclusive Walmart Nintendo Switch bundle will be the first and only time that gamers can get that combination of Joy-Cons.

Walmart will sell the Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch bundle for $379. The bundle will be available while supplies last.

From our experience, these restocks and allotments of Nintendo Switch will vary significantly from store to store. The rule of thumb is that a Walmart found in or near a larger city will receive more consoles, while others in less populated areas may not see any at all.

Before heading out to your local Walmart on Sept. 8, call your local Walmart ahead of time to see if they received a restock of the Nintendo Switch. To find your local Walmart, visit the store locator.

This latest Nintendo Switch restock is part of Nintendo’s plan to get more consoles out to the public. The Wall Street Journal reported that Nintendo plans to ship 10 million Nintendo Switch consoles by the end of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018.

The WSJ report also stated that the company has instructed manufacturers to prepare to get 18 million units out there, if need be. And with the holiday season upon us, expect other retailers to announce restocks of the Switch.

Splatoon 2 is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
