Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Bundle Still Available at Walmart Online

Since last Friday, Walmart has been selling their Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 exclusive bundle without stock running out – a telling sign that supply and demand have equalized a bit across the country. These units come in the exclusive pink and green Joy-Con with Splatoon 2 and a travel case for $379.99 with free shipping.


Having said that, depending on where you live stock of the regular $299 Nintendo Switch console can still be limited and another striking sign of this is that major big box retailers such as Target and Best Buy still does not have the console available to order online.

Nintendo Switch Available Online List Price
Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 Bundle (Walmart Exclusive) $379.99
Nintendo Switch Gray Joy-Con Mario Kart Bundle (GameStop) $359.99
Nintendo Switch (Gray/Neon) Joy-Con Zelda Bundle (GameStop) $359.99


Head over to gaming retailer GameStop and the story is a bit similar, in that if you want to buy online without stepping into a store, you can still only buy the Nintendo Switch console if you choose to “pre-order” them online along with a game. All of these bundles are the Gray Joy-Con variant, whereas if you want Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con console only, you have to order online to pick up at a store if your local GameStop carries them in stock.


Circling back to the Walmart exclusive Switch bundle, the Splatoon 2 package is only available at the big box retailer and includes the aforementioned exclusive Neon Green and Neon Pink Joy-Cons, which is only available in this system. It also comes with an official Nintendo Switch Splatoon themed carrying case. The only fault of this system we see is that it comes with a digital copy of Splatoon 2 in lieu of a physical one – so you can’t exactly trade off your copy at a future date.


Priced at $379.99, you won’t save any money by going with this in-demand bundle – but you also won’t be paying scalper pricing as well! Despite supply being more readily available than previous months, you can still find Nintendo Switch console being priced from $349 to $369 on eBay – and people are actually buying them still which kind of boggles our mind.


So if anything, you now know of at least a few additional sources to pick up Nintendo Switch consoles without paying for marked up pricing, and you’ll also be buying the system from official retailer and receiving full warranty and support.
